I'm hoping to convince my customer to upgrade his ms3(using dual pumps), by beating him in a turbo 8 .
its not the pump that is the problem. the problem is the injectors, no one makes larger ones. anyways the place i work at built a 700+whp MS3like 6 months ago. that thing is retarded fast for a fwd hatch.

I ran 14.2 stock with all seasons in my MS3!

It is hard to make much power on a stock block MS3. I am in this boat right now lol. It is by far the best DD I have ever owned though!

I think my best 1/4 was a 14.4 all stock with an intake. I don't have much of a driver mod, it was my first time out!

I can see it...

My '12 ms3 is easily heads and shoulders faster than my t2. That's with the extremely touchy launch required in the ms3 and maniacal torque steer. From a roll it's even worse. The 6spd does a good job keeping it in the power.

Guess that means it's time to throw some more $$ at the rx7 haha.

Lost in all of this is how did both of you beat a Civic SI Turbo? Seems alittle strange considering even with a small turbo those things can make well over 400whp.

Unless its like a 1989 stock SI or something.
