AEM PULLEY...IS IT WORTH IT? WHAT CARS TO RACE?

I have an ECU chip, Greddy exhaust and an Intake on my 02 celi' Its a manual. What would be a reasonable upgrade other than that? The next step I guess??? Also...You're opinion on which cars I should and shouldnt race? Assuming that the other car is stock except for exhaust. Prelude, Eclipse, Focus..neon. Any and every car you think I have a chance at smoking...with the upgrades I have on my car. Thanx...

rofl the infamous resistor mod! Well, if you think it helps, more power to you. As long as you didn't pay a lot and it didn't take too much of your time...


Anyway, GT or GTS? Purchase some headers, header blankets, free flow cat, and a pulley kit.

You would be safe racing on a drag strip/autoX/road course only.

...oh, you meant what cars can you beat on a drag strip/autox/road course? Only your experience can tell you that. That and the mods you put on your car, and the mods your racing opponent has.

Yeah, I know, kinda of a vague answer. Go to the racing forum on this site and see what some of the guys are racing with. Run a 1/4 and post your time slip.

Be safe, and don't race on the streets.
