I love how everyone just started a shitfest over this car. I think it's neat, but the second video was a little upsetting due to racing into traffic. Anyway, cool stuff. The 3800s are pretty beastly with blowers.


Thanks man. Its not a drag strip car or a DB drag car but it sure id fun. Racing into traffic not a good idea, NOT how we usually do things around here.

lower tuning is just hard. I was surprised how loud 145 sounds at 35hz, and how quiet 145 sounds at 50hz.

Nice car but imho that 96 shits all over it lol. May not be as fast, I just have a soft spot for that generation.

And the fact more than one person agrees does not make it a circle jerk, it makes it a bukkake scene and you're in the middle ;)

Chick took 3 shots of Jager, and then, pissed in my mouth..

Cool story bro, want a cookie? 252whp really ain't fast.


A HP number means how fast a car is? my can made 150-160 WHP Stock and ~170 WTQ stock. so 252 WHP and 321 WTQ is a lot. should run low 13's - Mid 12's... Thats pretty damn good for a HEAVY Car such as the Impala. Those number were also from a mustang dyno which are much more accurate and LOWER than any other dyno. Its like a Termlab Vs anything else... What do you drive?

your car is ok.. But i 100% sure its not going to do 13's not even close to mid 12's. thats going a little to far. Around 14's i say will be good.
We don't have alot of neighbors so we can blast the stereo.

Its quick enough to beat a lot of the RICE out there.

Blazer, I just noticed how little wrap the belt has on the s/c. Have you checked for slippage? If it is, you are losing a little bit.

Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

It should run from 13.2-13.5's I'll never really know because I'm not taking it to the strip. I know it's WELL under 14's at least when the system was out as I have raced a lot of cars and no one has ever been disappointed. Honestly as long as its fast on the street that's all I want. No one around my area has a top swapped impala, I like that fact. It's quick enough for me. Will easily burry the 120mph speedo with ease. I don't know why every one is bashing my ride lol. It beat the 96 impala with ease and as I said that's the impala of all impala's to most. There are lots more videos on my YouTube. I ATE a 95 camaro LT1 and a few LS1 camaro's too. Mustangs were an easy feat when the system was out last fall. None of that matters to me anyways, I just love the feel and Sound of the blower, instant torque :). If I was really worried about being fast I could have spent the money that I spent on the 2 W7 13's and the me Mechman 270 and been In the low 12's. All I need is an intercooler, 3.25 pulley, 80lb injectors and A cam to be around 320whp but all that would cost 1600.00 and than my trans would grenade so that's why after talking to ZZP I stopped modding the motor as I don't have the money to do it properly due to the trans costing 2500.00 :(. I'm sorry my car isnt fast enough for you fucks.... This is my caring face :|. :)

Well your attempt to guess my 1/4 Mile was off. The TBSS runs LOW 14's to high 13's stock.. http://www.trucktren...r_ss/specs.html

Its quick enough to beat a lot of the RICE out there.

Blazer, I just noticed how little wrap the belt has on the s/c. Have you checked for slippage? If it is, you are losing a little bit.

It does slip sometimes, Usually after shifts.

Thanks man.

Be prepared to get a lot of shit, The Impala is heavier than the Grand Prix and everyone will compare to their grand parents Impala. I just love how my car sounds and pulls, plus my engine bay looks sweet now :)

racing stock cars, sounds like a rat farting in a beer can, butt o meter hp numbers..... yep rice is still alive


Butt HP Numbers? My car was actually dyno tuned. So what if they are stock cars, We are not talking about SLOW stock car though. The TBSS and 96 Impala SS are very respected vehicles, and both quick. Im not sure what your problem here is, nor do I give a fuck, but my car would never have been anywhere NEAR them stock.


Impalas run in the low to mid15s stock, there is nothing quick or respectable about that to be honest they are slow as hell in their stock form but if you want to keep thinking otherwise then more power to you grasshoppa.......and before you try to contradict me know that I own a 95 and 96 impala ss' and both have well over 500whp so Im fully aware of what they are in their stock form

So show us pitbull.
I like to see 500whp cars.

97ssblazer,
Nice ride, quite fast and loud.
Don't mind people telling it's not loud or fast, as long as its fast enough for you.

Thanks man. With the New alt keeping my voltage around 15 volts this set up is the loudest yet, I haven't metered it yet but by ear it sure is and that's all that maters anyways.

And to pitbull. He may or may bot have a 500whp impala. But there is no proof.

Thanks man. If he has 2 500+ WHP cars good for him. I didn't build a drag car, I wanted a NICE car that could be a daily driver and still get good MPG but yet be fast when I wanted it too.

nice system just wouldnt mod a car like that


Thanks. I just wanted to build the nicest Impala around here, The Engine looks dope with the blower, headers, alternator and everything all cleaned up.

lower tuning is just hard. I was surprised how loud 145 sounds at 35hz, and how quiet 145 sounds at 50hz.

Cool story bro. The fact of the matter is my 3.8L v6 would have never stood a chance before. Now factor in a lot more weigt and I still walked him that's good to me. From what I have read the 96 runs low 15s to mid 14s my car stock ran 17's lol. Why don't you stop hating and look at the work that has been done to my car.


do some more reading impalas with the lt1 are 15 second cars stock, every now n then you will see one do 14.9ish in perfect conditions..... they are fkn tanks lol
and you are sadly mistaken, just because Im not singing your praises over the videos doesnt mean im hating, Im just speaking my opinion....i can respect the work that was put into your car but that doesnt make my stance on the races or actions change.....sorry but people with modified vehicles racing stock ones isnt impressive

I have done reading, Hence I said they were 15 second cars. What is so hard to understand about me racing something like a TBSS or 2006+ Impala SS? Those are both MUCH faster than my car stock. All I was after when I built my motor was to be able to hang with the new SS's, which I can do now. The sole purpose of my car is NOT to race, I do very little racing. I only raced the 96 Impala because people always think they are fast and they are not. I feel racing stock performance vehicles in something that was never meant to be fast and winning IS impressive as do MOST people, But I guess when you have two 500WHP+ cars it would be hard to impress you. Its kinda like owning a 150+DB ride, anything below that just inst loud LOL, I get it :) Can we be friends now? :drink40: LMAO

lower tuning is just hard. I was surprised how loud 145 sounds at 35hz, and how quiet 145 sounds at 50hz.

I just dropped the car off for a low mileage bottom end and a Cam install. I choose ZZP's XP cam made by Comp cams. I also boguht the matching injector and im going to run a dual best setup since I will be running a small pulley now. the cam is good for ~50 WHP :) I'm hoping for 300WHP and 370WTQ which should be good for high 12's as long as I get traction.

lower tuning is just hard. I was surprised how loud 145 sounds at 35hz, and how quiet 145 sounds at 50hz.

Love the Impala OP! Brings me back to my Lumina Z34 days... Gonna make me shed a tear thinking of that Quad Cam 3400 growling down the main avenues, taking down Civics and Sentras with their cute little bolt on mods on Friday nights.

She was beat to shit but god damn would she run...
