ok, heres my problem, i raced an eclipse, it was second gen, the ones that started in like 95 i think, anyway, we raced to 80mph and i was even with him the whole time, but around 55-60 mph, i heard what i believed to be a turbo coming from his car, and he still couldnt get ahead of me, was it a turbo, or did i just hear an intake??,

you wouldnt hear the stock turbos spool up. outside my car, I can barely hear my t3/4 spool up at full speed, let alone traffic noise.

downshifting, or any type of shifting would cause your BOV to snap open, you would hear a hiss or a cough type of sound. if the revs rose, you'd hear the turbo spooling up, but it's a very very tiny turbo on the engine. even with crank walk, the GS-X and the GS-T will walk all over the alty. the RS and the GS are pretty easy kills for the alty stock for stock.

2nd gen GS-T/GSX's are slow !!! Well in stock form , from a roll they arent all that special , 205HP and a ton of weight in AWD form ... ..... But yea , they would give a basicly stock 1-2 gen Altima a good spankin ..... Esp. from a stop ....Then they are quick ...!!

I'm really tempted to try and race my friend who just had his dad buy him a 2002 GS-T I wanna beat him (he can't race. don't think he's ever done it before) just to **** with him :) Think I could do it since he ain't the best racer in the world?
