Turbo 5.3 LSX Fairmont, Greg's First Ride in the Ultimate Sleeper
This is Greg, my 15 year old son's, first ride in the Fairmont. He is the one that found the car on YouTube and told me about it and that Matt (Denmah) wanted to sell it. Too bad it was dark, because you can't see his face. We will make another video this weekend in the light. Anyway, enjoy...there are several hard pulls here with absolutely no traction...and me cackling like an idiot. I love this car!!!
Leroy Brown the Turbo LSX Fairmont at TX2K14.....
Wins and losses at TX2K14. The races against the Vette, Monte and RX7 were
on low Boost, 12 psi. The Supras
were raced on 15-16 psi as was the LSX Willys. It was a good time. We had
some issues and the car was pushing some coolant on long pulls, but we came
to race and we did. I had hoped for more action, but maybe next time!

5.3 Turbo LSx Fairmont Second Pass Exterior View....
This was the second pass. I turned up the Boost to 17 and lagged it harder. What I
failed to see was that I pushed through and triggered the beams and sat
there. Well, that would explain why I went 10.55. Did turn 136. 60 foot was
a dismal (duh) 2.0 on this pass.
700hp Turbo LSx Jaguar XJ SLEEPER
We made our first visit to Irwindale Drag Strip for one of the test & tune
nights... one of the cars that caught our attention was this unsuspecting
1970's Jaguar XJ with a decent sized turbo and a stroked out LSx (402ci). While it's
not the quickest thing on the strip, it was pretty sweet to see this stock
interior boat flying down the track!
My First Pass at the Track with 5.3 LSx Turbo Fairmont.....10.36 @ 134
This is the first time out with Goldmember at the track for me. Drove it an
hour on the interstate cruising along happily in OD with the converter
locked up @ 2400 rpm, aired down the tires and lined it up. Pass was made
on wastegate alone, so 13 psi. Very conservative tune and race gas for
insurance. This was the first time this car was launched off of the
anti-lag at the track. It cut a 1.71. I think I had about 6-7 psi of Boost built up. Tricky to launch. When
I get it down a bit, we will be solidly in the 9's. Went 10.36 @ 134 on
this run, with a 6.7 @ 107 in the 1/8th. I am happy for sure with this type
of performance for my first time out.....

Turbo LSx Fairmont vs. Stretched GSXR-750R From a 50 Roll Down in Mexico.....
Here is a little roll action with Leroy Brown and a stretched Gixxer 750.
Deal was we would go from 50, and I would take the hit since he could not
hear honks anyway. First race he said he was not ready, second race he
wound up taking the hit and I had to run him down on only 10 psi, third
race went as planned.....
