    It would be good to know both weight (with half-fuel and driver in) and hp together in order to calculate power-to-weight ratio.

    Good to hear the scales are available, I'm interested to see what mine weighs. Also it'll be interesting to see how it compares to n/a cars of the same year (calling Bernie!).

    I have to find it but I remember reading a 1997 NA weighed more than a 1999 NB.

    I’d like to weigh mine but without me in it.

    Due to circumstances beyond my control, I have to back out of this event. Sorry guys.

    Man, that stinks, was hoping you could get a tune on your car. Hope all is well and what came up works itself out.

    Looks like were in for some pretty warm weather for this. I got some compressed air to try. I'm planning to try frosting over the intercooler before a pull and see how long it will keep intake temps down.

    Got fresh oil and filter with new air filter. If I can get my exhaust quiet I'll be a happy camper, ready to go.
