Hey FOST guys, how fast was this car?

I've got a new setup I'm breaking in on my Saab.  I do not have a tune for it so I've been taking it a bit easy and staying on pump gas.

I just had some runs with a local FoST.

He had an RS front end, upgraded FMIC, tune and TBE.

We did a 60-115 on the highway then lined up and did a 70-110.

I pulled 1.5 cars.  I was guessing his setup is 265-280whp, high 13 second car in the 102-104mph range.  That sound right?

Untuned on pump, I'm about 300whp and my car is 300-400lbs heavier.  Tuned on e85 I'll make 350-370whp/450tq.  I saw a peak of 19.4psi today and short shifted at 5k.  Tuned on e85 my setup will do 23-24psi.

TIA

Yeah you are prolly right about his power/trap speeds.

But you were on roads in Michigan in early April, I guarantee he was spinning in 3rd at least if not 4th as well.

We started from 60-70mph.  I have every bit of traction issues too.  I feathered it when I nailed it...55 degrees today.  When I'm on all season 235, vs my 245 Super Sports I get wheel spin at 60 mph in the dry.

Re: Hey FOST guys, how fast was this car?

I've yet to run into a fast fost. Even on pump gas, stock turbo(280whpish) i walked every one i ran into. Now with the dom 1.5 flex fuel setup the car actually feels fast. I pulled away from a modded RS with ease a few days ago on a e50 blend. Guy was surprised to say the least.

I am confident I'd walk an RS once I'm tuned and on E85.  Considering how easy I had to go on my car yesterday, I'm happy to have pulled the modded ST

For sure.  I'm just telling you as a FoST owner at stock power I spin like crazy <60F in 1-3 at WOT.

Oh yeah, I would totally expect that in any FWD/manual/turbo car with 250+hp/tq,

Re: Hey FOST guys, how fast was this car?

Sounds plausible.

I don't know what fast means to different people, but obviously if you can walk a 340HP AWD then a 250HP FWD isn't going to give you a problem...

From a dig surely.  But at highway speeds, my 3600lbs is not much of an issue anymore.  Have you seen vids of the guy in Texas with a 9-5 like mine?  He went a bigger turbo and made 523whp.  The cars he takes down is insane, like 650whp blown C7s.
