    Yeah, that's the problem, I need to find a place where I can go that fast without getting arrested or dead. They don't really exist in NJ though.

    My friend Lawson Bilhardt ran 178.628 mph at Maxton, NC last October in his '90 SC. He took the car to Bonneville last year, the USFRA meet, but had trouble with control, due to the little tires he had on the front, when he got up to 190.20769.

    The engine does have an AR supercharger on top, big lift cam, ported plenums, etc., etc. He's pulling about 7,000 rpm when he winds it out in the lower gears. Lawson still doesn't know what he can get in top speed. He's aiming to better USFRA record, which is about 214 mph.

    Is this a 5 speed SC ? I think 178 is impressive...190 sounds scary.

    Yup, it's a 5-speed.

    Lawson is retired and he gets his kicks with the SC - and snowmobiling. He's not a computer guy so he doesn't post.

    Just talked with Lawson (he lives in a suburb of Philly).

    He had the car, '90 SC, on a dyno a couple of years ago. It was making 470 hp then with 50lb injectors and a 2.3 Whipple.

    Now he's running 60lb injectors, a 3.3 Whipple, 22 lbs. of boost. He's questimating he's getting 600 to 650 hp at the rear wheels.

    Back in November I was on the interstate and a 04 corvette was messing with me so we took off and he killed me at first then way after my 120 speedo was pegged i passed him back and continued by for a little while.

    Ive got a mid modified 89 with stock gears. we both got off at the same exit and when he pulled up to the light next to me he said he was doing 160mph and i was creeping away from him.

    With all poly bushings and new electronic struts front and rear that bird glides on the highway.

    about 2 years ago with the 2.73 gears i had a cop budy of mine tag me at 167mph. that was almost all it had. i let off of it at that point due to losing my nerve. i have the 3.27 gear now so im thinking maybe around 140mph now. ill have to get him to clock me again.

    No worries there, you'd be dead before you knew what happened.
