    Forte 5 vs Optima 2.0t

    Alright guys I am reaching out to my forum peeps for some advice on this. There is a friendly battle in my car club and the leader is setting up friendly battles just for fun with the other members. So we have a turbo Optima that has full exhaust, Lap3 uncle chip and a BOV. The other is a Optima 2.4L with I think exhaust. I have seen the turbo one and saw it take off and it seems quick but from a dig it seemed a bit slow.

    So I am having my ECU fine tuned from John at Tork and I am hoping to get my downpipe by next week. Other mods are in my sig that I have. I am curious if anyone has ran one of these cars yet. I haven't had the chance yet but really want to. There are a couple other Optimas in a few friendly clubs that want to try and run me also but I want to make sure that I am on their ass or passing them.
    15 F5 A/T , 6th intake, Rev Motorsports 75A & 65A dogbone bushings, Second cat delete, Custom FMIC, 2.5" exhaust with Pypes muffler, TurboSmart Vee Port Pro , 2 ADD W1 catch cans, Transmission Cooler, DEI Wrapped intake, Custom 3"-2.5" lower intake pipe, Oil Cooler (needs to be installed), TB coolant bypass, Tork Motorsports tuned, Prosport boost gauge, NST lightweight pulleys, 60mm TB, Storm lowering springs, 3" single exit axle back.

    There are a few here at the track that are modded and run mid to high 13s. Just a few mods and a tune and it is not hard for them to have 300 hp to the ground and they are only 500 lb heavier. From a dig you will take them even modded because the 1,2,3 gear ratios are way different but once they are moving they will catch up fast. Should be a good race if it is from a dig.

    Find someone with a set of sticky drag tires on 16" wheels and bolt them on the front so you can WOT off the line.

    The way my car launches now with the tune it will spin in 1st on certain roads and even when already rolling in 2nd and I hit wot it will spin. On more grippy roads it will chirp a little and just go. So I am hoping the road we choose has the grip lol

    Mine had the Hankooks on for 30K miles and can't say anything bad about them other than once they hit the wear bars they sucked in the rain but when it was dry they would stick in corners beautiful. Of course it may have had something to do with being a soft compound and almost like a drag radial that worked in corners. Speaking of tires has anyone ever tried cornering hard with a set of ET Streets? They make a 245/40r18 that would look amazing on a nice set of 8.5" wides, not for the DD but I wonder how they would hold in corners.
