    What kind of tires were you on? You have room to improve on your 60 time which would get you much closer to that 12.7. I am guessing you were on street tires though.

    That would help you with what little mods you have. Work on your launching to improve your 60 time and I think you will hit your 12.7.

    You should get there. I went a different route. I only had 2 mods headers and a 3500 stall and went 12.5 on et streets.

    The stock 10 bolt can handle a 3500 stall all day and then some. Plus why a underdrive pulley? The only real horse power add I see is headers on your car. Why not just run a short belt. It takes the power steering and A/C out. I know a bunch of people go underdrive. But it only takes a minute or 2 to switch to the short belt.


    To me real power gains are

    cam
    forced induction
    nitorus

    All the free mods may give you 20 or 25 hp tops... And underdrive is not free. Short belt is very cheap like 9 bucks.

    Some will say underdrive is there all the time. But none of us race on the street. Just giving you ideas... And even on a closed course you can throw a short belt on fast.

    A 12.9 at 108mph isn't bad at all. Good run, keep the mods coming and you'll be there.
