Mods to beat DC2

Hi, I was just wondering what mods/power does an FN2 need to beat a DC2 with full exhaust and headers.

Cheers

Dc2 is 190bhp stock? Probably 210 with mods max I would guess. I would think the fn2 would need a better handling set up and 230+

It's an old car, expect to lose power most DC2's here in AUS with basic bolt ons no tune push 105-110kw. (140BHP-150BHP).

And yet they still kill EP3's and FN2's.

I was only 3 hp out

It's all about power to weight and the general set up. That 170bhp per ton beats ep3 at 166 and the fn2 at 158 or whatever it is, before even considering the set up.

I was suprised, my friend with headers and exhaust pushed 107kW(143bhp) at the wheels.

My other friend with a stock DC2 pushed 105kW(140bhp) at the wheels.

But still, they beat FN2's and EP3's.

I think ep3 and fn2 are about 150 at the wheels.

FN2 need an improvement in handling with ARB's, polybush's and rigid collars.

It will improve tons with this mods.

My FN2 is quicker than either of my DC2s were, I think with FRS and some weight reduction or breathing mods there'll be nothing in it

I currently have, Injen CAI, Toda Headers, Invida Catback and now I'm going for a tune.

Will I be able to beat my friends DC2?

I've had a play with a JDM DC2 that a mates got and in a straight line there is hardly anything in it.

The DC2 would eat my FN2 in the corners though.

Remember that the BHP isn't everything, gearing makes a big difference too.

Honing your driving skills will probably be better than trying to mod the FN2.

8 out of 10 it's the driver not just the car.

I'd like to think I'm a decent driver , However all the races we have he always seems to pull away. He can even take on an EP3.

Everyone likes to think they are a good driver.

Just do the usual things if you are after straight line speed i.e Manifold + catback exhaust, air intake, Flash Pro.

Failing that take him on some country lanes and see who has the biggest nuts...I mean track.
