    Well you don't have 420hp and you're not gonna see 11's with those mods either, sorry.

    420 at the engine possibly, but not 420 at the wheels...

    12's are reasonable, mid 12's i'd say...

    enjoy your time at the track and post up time slips or your runs...

    Once that cam is installed maybe 420 at the flywheel. 12's are possible but if this is his 1st trip to the track he may be dissapointed.

    You'll be waiting? Gonna need some more mods than that to be so cocky. Why are you running 7.425" push rods, you just needed to get stock length moly pushrods. If you install some new heads you might be close to 420 rwhp.

    Theres a few mods that you've wasted your money on first being the msd coils second being the smooth bevels neither will give you more power.

    I'm probably making more power than you but i'm not running drag radials just normal street tires for now and you also have gears. I have a bigger cam and underdrive pulley also no cats.

    My Combo:

    Sub Frame Brace
    Boxed Lower Control Arms
    MTI Lid
    K&n
    Texas Rumbler Cat(Y) Back
    Pacesetter Headers
    Off road Y pipe
    Slp Under Drive pulley
    TSP 228R Cam
    Moly Pushrods
    Comp Cams 918 Push Rods
    Tune

    I see you edited what you initially wrote

    i was VERY disappointed my first time at the track....clutch didnt hold on either run ..never had a prob with it on the street ......its very humbling being there as well...some REAL sick cars at the track ..loud as fuck....advice.....IF this is your first time at the track skip the burn out and just launch real light to get a feel for everything.....i got my clutch to hot doin the burn out i belive and it wouldnt hold....an easy launch and u should still be able to hit a high 12 mark if you hit your shifts perfect
