    also like what zap said.. the Lightnings are beasts from a dig but up top they hit a wall. Im sure if you and your bro had raced 1/4 mile things would have been more up in the air.

    They are amazing trucks and a good challenge. Some of the most fun races you could have is from something that can be modded so easily since they will keep ya guessing.

    I thought the same thing. Me and my bro was cruising on the interstate one day and I seen one so I was like screw it were gonna get it. We started(dude even had a baby seat in the pass. side) and he killed me. I was pissed because I just knew I could beat him. He ended up having a different blower and ported and no2... I was happy to figure that out.(No he didn't have his kid in the car at the time)

    like I said they will keep ya guessing. I honestly have not coem across one yet that has beaten me but shit I know they are out there. Just not common enough trucks. If there were as many of them as mustangs we might have a little bit of an epidemic on our hands

    dude i have a 98 t/a, im completely stock...except flowmaster mufflers(already on when i bought car) and i raced a lightning with only exhaust(from what i could see, i didnt talk to him), and it was dead even...so if he really is stock youll beat him.

    I do want to head up there. When me and Tony get back from the field next month Im going to do my install and we will head out there. hopefully Zap will be able to make it down, it would be a good time. Plus I want a piece of that 402 I figure the bottle holds a few liters to make up for being a stock block car

    he backed out of it yesterday. Did'nt show up to the nor did he pick up any calls. Good thing he did'nt come though car would'nt hook at all. I had about 10 runs last night about 6 of them were 14's high 14's at that 4 of them high 13's but the car did get faster to me I was trapping at 105 and 107 on some of the high 13's so I know if I were able to hook I would've ran a 12 something all day. It did'nt matter if I left hard or soft last night I would still leave rubber damn near the whole track.

    Do Lightnings respond well to exhaust mods? Headers, cats? Also, how good do they sound (minus the charger's whine)?

    sound pretty good...I can post some videos of my catback when I get home...when you open up both the exhaust and intake it helps the blower and motor breathe better...so yeah...but sizing up the pulley is the way to go!

    hey ZAP did you change your s/c pulley? I know on the Cobras they get 30-40rwhp gain just from that.

    I changed the crank pulley that drives the blower, but not the actually blower pulley...same effect though
