i raced my friend today and he has a 02 with 141k and a aem v2 with a catback with stock wheels and tires. I have a 03 with 70k and a v2 with a catback and JRRH and 17" drag dr31's.. We raced from a roll in 2nd right before vtec and he instantly jumped on me and continued to pull. then we raced from a 60 mph roll and he instantly jumped on me again and then it evened out a lil. WTF? do u think it is like this because i am running a race header without a tune? or do u think that his smaller and lighter wheels r giving him the jump? me and him were both surprised and figured id out pull him. im pretty upset and i have an rbc waiting to be put on with kpro soon. we are both equal drivers and we even switched cars and raced again and same results. what do u guys think? did i lose power with the race header and removing the cat without a tune?

**PUT MY STOCK WHEELS BACK ON AND I JUMPED AND BEAT HIM EVERYTIME, LOST A LITTLE ACCELERATION AND JUMP WITH THE BIGGER WHEELS

nope, a raceheader will still benefit you without a tune

Could be you're spark plugs, or you're heavier, maybe you're filter is clogged

the wheels are the problem guy. and his motor may still be healthier.

maybe you guys should have switched penises.


and why the hell are you running rh without kro?


you see k-pro is like a taylor.
you can go out and buy a 3000 dol suit, but it will look like shit if it isnt taylored.

you are not getting the best out of your mods w/o kpro. like i said in above post. you can buy all the mods you want, but to make them work for you u need a tune


do you have reflash or are you running on stock map?

the writers of the movie knew nothing about cars when they made that movie
especially in 2 fast 2 furious when paul walker is driving the yellowish evo backwards on the highway you CLEARLY hear a vtec crossover.
