    Is there anyway a Honda F15 turbo, would pull 1 ski length on a stage 2 FZR

    This guy on PwcYesterday is saying his low 70mph (if that) Honda F15x pulled a stage 2 Fzr running 80 out the hole by a ski length.....can this happen, I mean there is no comparison in the ski's

    The only way to compare them is by selling the Honda and buying a FZR.

    If the FZR is cavitating out of the hole like crazy it would.

    Like Jim said if he was cavitating bad yeah he could lead out the hole, but that should be it.

    I had a guy at the dock tell me that the Hondas back before regulations were set would beat anything out there now easily.
    I told him mine was GPS'd at 80mph right now with issues and he said that was way too slow. Whatever, keep smoking that stuff and share a bit will ya...

    Then he says the only reason why his Honduh beat the FZR is because it was down on RPM 7700 he said......well that don't make sense because I turn 7600 @ 73 and I smoke Honduh's all day..... The ski is stock with a map sensor bleed and a FPR....boy those Honda mods are on the ragged edge!

    So your running a bleed line on your MAP sensor to trick the ECU into allowing more boost? Jim did something similar to this before we had reflashes. It's pretty cool IMO, just keep an eye on AFRs.

    If that's the Honda I think you are talking about then he's running around 76 MPH with what you have mentioned so if the FZR was cavitating then yeah, it's not going to catch up.
