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.
I had a 9's t/a (1988 3390 lb ) mid 10's (1980 turbo 400) , you have to rework the car to get any real traction out of that 3rd gen set up.

love to see a vid of it hanging tires on the street, on dot tires

so a 240z is 2200lb's?
