    Okay so the Track Elevation is 827 feet. You currently run 12.01 during (summer,winter,fall,spring)??? I was cutting the same as you 1.73 60' and had the same 12.01 1.4 mile with 113 mph. I got in the 11's cutting a 1.66 60' and ran a 11.93 at 113 mph. I went from a 3500 TCI converter and sent it to TCI to make it a 4000. I would say the 3600 should take you into the 11's. Headers,4000 TCI, 231/237 and 3.73 gears here.. I finally got it down to 11.52 with a 1.58 60' at 121 mph. Again I think it will put you over the 12.00 hump.. Good luck...

    Okay.... You might have been in the 11's with the last setup during fall or winter... But you will be there for sure IMO after the converter change to 3600. You should 60' better period..

    What kinda tune do you have? Dino, handheld, mailorder? I think that is where your lacking, but the stall will help you a little more, but I am with most here, you should be in the high 11s with your setup. Also, have you done any weight reduction?

    I did not want to strip my car down on the inside. It has leather,power windows, etc... I put a aftermarket stereo in and that added weight. Have to have A/C and heat here... When it is 105 out with 95% humidity A/C is a must.

    I have a Nitrous system collecting dust in the garage. So if I ever want I can add it. I just prefer N/A and full weight... I could be faster if I removed a lot of stuff..

    PM sent with links. Is the converter still out being worked on. You might want to add a anti-ballooning plate to it. I would not worry to much with a small shot say 50 or 75. But for insurance I would just have them add it now. With a large shot you will burn/slip thru the converter.
