Are these even a little noteworthy?

A while back I raced a Ford Crown Vic Police Interceptor at a light that was 0-70mph w/ a 5psi boosted launch in Overdrive, and walked him. (it was a kid not a cop)

Then the other night I raced a Camaro, I have no idea if it was a v6 or v8 but it was the mid-late 90's style. I was going about 35 with the overdrive off and he went to whip around and pass me but I punched it and so did he, I saw his lights jump a little from him flooring it at the same time, then at about 55 I turned the overdrive back on and walked away from him up til 70. 35-75mph walked away from him. Then I let off and coasted to 55 and he started RIDING MY A$$ so I left him again, he tried to keep up but couldn't.

Of course a couple months ago there was that D-max that couldn't get away from me and gave me the thumbs up, but that was before my resistor mod and boost fooler and everything, all I know is he had exhaust on it.

Is that like... good? Decent? I don't really know if they're exactly "fast" vehicles... but none of 'em beat me...

Someone gimme a clue lol!

Well none of the rigs around school was down for a race lol! These just came up. The crown vic wanted to race, the camaro I just wouldn't let pass me cause I could, the D-max definately started that, that was fun.

What I WANT to do is beat this a$$ that has a 95 Ram 2500 that has been converted into a 2002, but still has the old 12V 5.9 and the 6speed. It's lifted on 33's and has bags, 5" exhaust into a 6" stack, 100hp injectors, and gauges.

And my truck's in my sig. I'd love to beat him, but I doubt I could. I don't stand a chance do I?

Well even though I got stock turbo and stock injectors with that 5.6k resistor .... I don't know how much power it added, but it is DEFINATELY noticeable, and added a good 10 psi of boost, isn't that good for something? Or it IS but not enough...?
