Sorry for the delay on the results of the NOS install. I had a problem with the system that I did not get resolved until 10:00p.m. last night. I had a bad micro switch that activated the nitrous at full throttle. Once the switch was fixed I went out with two friends see what the car could do. We came across a yellow automatic C4 Corvette. I first raced him from a35mph roll and I walked away from him. That is my best mph to go from on a punch, and probably the worst for the corvette. When then raced from a dead stop and by the end of 1 St. gear he was at my rear door and half way through second was at my rear bumper. At the next stop light the guys in the C4 wanted to know what the hell was in that thing. I just told them I had a couple of computer chips. The driver of the C4 then proceeded to tell me that his car runs 13.5ís in the 1/4 mile. Iím not sure if this is accurate or not, but I did have auto 87 corvette that ran a 14 flat. I was not expecting my huge 4door car with three occupants to beat the C4. I will try to get to the dyno and the track soon to get more results.
