Another Newb!

Hey everyone, my name is Drew, i'm stationed at ft. bragg, but am from cleveland, ohio, yet call simpsonville, sc home, along w/ knoxville, tn home!

anywho, i don't drive a ranger, but i do enjoy some of the work i've seen on them... i drive a 2008 Cobalt SS Turbocharged, with quite a bit of work done to it: i have a 3" catless downpipe, 3" catback exhaust, cold air intake, hot side charge piping, cold side charge piping, hks ssqv bov, a very aggressive, yet safe tune (spiking 27psi, holding 22psi, rev limiter increased to 7k rpms, leaned out afr, and advanced 27* timing) the car is well over 350hp, and 380 tq, and is daily driven... pics if requested

sorry this has been such a long starter post:(

LOL, I was wondering the same thing. This is a Ford Ranger forum, are you planning on buying a ranger? or did you forget to mention that you own a ranger?

i really don't think cute is the proper word to describe it... but it's whatever, i'm sure your little pony is almost up to par w/ my 2.0l

lol, i joined bc as previously stated, i like what ppl have done w/ these rangers... you can go a lot of different directions w/ them, they are very versatile

You will have to bring way better then a 13.2 to be on 'par' with my car. So yes, your Cobalt Super Slow is 'cute' but whatever.

i do believe my trap speed warrants a lot better than a 13.2... i'm having traction issues that i need to iron out... tbh, i've NEVER met a mustang that can hang... 350+whp in a car that weighs 1/2 of your mustang? idk man... plus i'm still on STOCK turbo, on 22psi... when i upgrade to my 35R bb turbo, i'll be well over 400, but that's not the point here... the point is, this is a welcoming thread... i'm curious to know just what you have done to that car to make you think it could slay mine...

Your car weighs 3000lbs...mine weighs 3220. Hardly half.

I just have 'bolt-ons' and a tune...; )

Your trap speed is high, but unless you run slicks and better axles, good luck getting a FWD to hook.

I wish you were closer. I would like to run you on the street.

From a dig and a 30 roll...I would just let off when I am consistently 1.5-2 cars ahead.

ud prob pull from 30-50, (nothing but flat spin) after that it'd be over... my car comes w/ no lift shifing (2-step) so, whenever i shift, i don't have to take my foot off the gas, therefore causing ZERO turbo lag
