    I respect the hell out of the stock C63.
    130mph is fast for a steet car, and more than respectable.

    But, we all know the cost, complexity, and risk of adding FI to a NA car.
    Add to that the complexity of the AMG engine, and the cost of the C63.
    All of those factors considered, I would go with the CTS-V if I wanted FI.
    Although, the Caddy is a fat pig. That's what I asked what this C63 weighed after the addition of the blower.

    Stock Vs Stock, I'd take the C63 over the Caddy.

    So I still don't understand your comment regarding the Caddy being faster when it isn't. How does what you stated make any sense?

    What about the risk of modifying any car? What is the risk of mild boost on a high VE motor? You can make more power with less heat/boost. Isn't that ultimately safer? Isn't that safer on pump gas? I think you're reaching now.

I remember you were making 664 whp and Jim was making 660. I also recall you ran a 10.8-10.9. So you can't compare your car with the one above as your car was more powerful during that period, and still is :-)
    higher boost? race tune? 10.8 times? all wrong.

    Oh really? Ok Mr. Right

    Isnt this what you ran in Vegas with Jim side by side?

    @0:21s shows you had the following:

    http://youtube.com/watch?v=AN5dWR_ujU8
    -CNC ported Heads
    - Weistec Stage 2 SC
    - 100 octane Race gas
    - ice tank box
    - 16 inch slicks



    you ran a 10.86 on a +5000 DA In Vegas. Your car was making 664whp. So again, don't compare your car with the one above as you were making much more whp. In addition, your boost during that period was around 14psi which is higher than the C63 above which is around 8psi

    where did you run 10.7 on your 2.3L on pump gas? Even if you did, you car was more powerful than the C63 above.

    Those weren't from me. If they were from me you wouldn't be posting.

    I'm not looking for an argument I'm looking for a logical explanation.

    You were running higher boost and race gas though? Maybe you mean not on a particular run? I remember you running race gas...

    That was the first time racing the car. I was running stage 2 boost and was using 100 octane fuel.

    Mr. Right? Don't be so ignorant.

    1. Show me where I was running higher boost?
    2. I will find the vid showing the 10.7...I didn't get the slip.
    3. Why do you think I had a race tune in?
    4. As you can buy 100 Octane fuel at the pump in Vegas I fail how to see that is race fuel.

    You're intelligent enough to know this is a technicality. 100 octane is considered race gas and 93 octane and 91 are pump gas as that is what cars for sale are designed to run on.

    I know of a pump close to me that has C16. Are we really going to call that pump gas simply because it is pumped?

    My point was and continues to be that we did it without MS109 so there is every reason to believe the C could also do it without 109...nothing more, nothing less.

    I strongly agree on that point. Especially considering it was not tuned for MS109. I also believe it would be much easier for the 3.0 liter to do.

    Congrats again to the owner and Weistec. This is really a feat considering the fact this car is the non-p31, full interior, stock block and stock transmission. I met the owner at no-fly zone and ran him just to see how I would hang. It inspired me to purchase a Weistec blower for sure lol.

    Let me remind you, this is what you said:

    The Point is , You were running on race gas when you implied that you didnt. Maybe you misunderstood, I understand and its ok.

    the other point is that you were making more than 660whp, so you cant compare your car with the one above!

    All I saw was this , and as it stands you ran a 10.86


    If you ran a 10.7 , maybe it wasnt posted. Plus, If you actually did, your car was making more whp than the C63 above, so again, you cant compare

    Do it you will love it. Personally, I dont feel the quarter mile drag represents how a Weistec car performs. I think the 800meters or the full Mile runs would be much more representative. On the streets there is absolutely no comparison , as any weistec supercharged M156 would humiliate any NA M156

    Dodgers car was very very fast... but it was stripped of anything added weight and even had a braille battery. Apples to apples they dont really compare. 10.6 is 10.6 though..
