its very easy to get these cars to "hook".
Starting with the right tires. You can put all the torque to the ground
and leave your combo in the dust on acceleration.
You cannot make a car faster by killing off power. Like overcamming it.
The big top end will not be realized with the 292H with this exhaust system.

My car will yank the front wheels of the ground from a light in all street trim.
The way I run it at the track is the same as the street setup.
Its just that the track is the right place for that.

You want to put garbage tires with no traction on your car go ahead.
You will never make up the difference.

you do not want to or need to kill off low mid grunt.
You just need some basic traction.
this car weights almost 1000 lbs more than a 240Z w a SBC and 4 speed.
