How would we like to proceed with any form of betting? Which particular car or strictly 2j vs. V8 class? Individual car winner take all? By class split pot between top 3?

I like the enthusiasm but I'll let you all down with this 2jz junkyard build. Next swap will be LS for sure.

Where do you think we're finding all these LSes? The GM Performance catalog?

Exactly! Mines still got 140K miles worth of grungy stuff on it. I never even washed it. Swapped a few parts and slapped it right on in there.

I was implying that LS > 2jz, disregard the junkyard part.

Wife had a thought: hp/L. Let's keep track and see who comes out on top, hell it might even be a redblock.

Kyle's 230ft will probably be the only redblock there besides kenny's and my clapped out ****can b20 (maybe 120 at the wheels, MAYBE). Kyle should be around 325-350 (although maybe less, IDK how far he'll go) and Kenny will put down whatever he has it turned up to at that point. 325/2.3=141.3hp/liter. I'd hope someone's 2jz makes 424hp.

Somebody needs to bring a gas-powered RC car and clean up in the HP/L competition.

I feel like it should be exempted from competition, but then again if it’s registered its a street car.

why? there's nothing particularly special about it, nothing says other folks can't build things bigger (and have)
