Got Spanked by Inf Q something or other...

This morning on the way to the train station to drop my wife off a guy with an Infinity Qsomethingorother pulled up by me as if to race.... Any way this guy did race me and he spanked me. You all know how that is when we get an ego let down when that kind of thing happens. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/mad.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Now, What can I do to get a better off line preformance for my T5? I would like to prevent this from happening again. I do know the outcome would be different if I was on the FWY for sure though... Just stoplight to stoplight.<p>( If I had the 53 F100 with the 327 sb that would never have accured GRRRR) <BR><BR>

Sorry, must have been a Q45. I am not an Infinity specialist. Just guessed. I saw the Infinity emblem and a Q on the deck lid.<p>Now that that is resolved what can I do to improve my off the line preformance? I suppose I can stuff a V8 in my 850....<BR><BR>

Re: (DVolvoguy777)

If it was a Q45...a larger and sorta strange looking sedan, then you just ran into one damn strong muscle car. As I recall they are well past 300hp in that thing and it's a total sleeper.<p>But hey, if you want a gain...check out the C70 forum and look at what I just wrapped up over the weekend. "K24 turbo installation onto my 98 C70...finally done!"<p>That will give you an edge for sure!<p>Cheers,<br>Prospero

What do you want?<br>That thing has 340 hp, a 5 speed tranny (that works well). Even though it weighs at least 600+ lbs more that would STILL mean it has about 280hp (apples to apples in weight)and a stump puller 1st gear compared to yours

I will look at your C70 and see how that works Pro. When the funds come to me then itll get done.<p>JRL, what I would like to do is put a stuffed Chevy 283 in the 855 and that will perty much fix what I need fixing. Then no worries.<p>The 855 I got kept up with the Q but I had to back down to avoid a safty issue. ( wife was in car ) <p>Do ya suppose if I had that IPD ECU flash it would help? ( along with the exahust they sell ) ( taking into consideration Prospero's mod as well )<p>I do know if I had my dads 53 F100 there would be no issue. ( built Ford tough w/ Chevy stuff ) 486 hp at the diff.

Turbo'ed Engines really need a 3 inch downpipe and complete exhaust (free-flow cat and muffler) for them to reach their true potential. <p>After you get a real exhaust on your car, then you can think about IPD ECU and larger turbo. <p>
