    My thoughts.
    Uh, maybe for a 2.73 geared AT car it would be that slow. 3.42 geared, WS6 6-speed? Come on, should be mid 13s @ 104+ even at 110k miles. And it looks like he can launch decently, cutting 2.0-2.1x 60 ft times with street tires.

    So to OP, I think you had a freak night with your 13.08 with your mods. My best so far is a 12.89 @ 109.89, with a 2.0x 60 ft. Don't know what the DA was, but the elevation here in Indy is about 775 at Raceway Park. It was a cool night then also, probably around 55 degrees. This was after my Hooker LT, ORY, lid muffler and no tune yet. I would like to get an LS6 intake, a tune, then hopefully I will run 12s on hot nights and over 110 MPH. And still get over 28 MPG highway.

    I dont know I thought it was a freak night also, I dont see how I got a 2.0 my first run, but I didnt get worse than a 2.2 out of 7 runs, it just doesnt spin, I take off at 2,500rpm's and it just squats and goes....the 01 and 02 SS and WS6 always was said to have ran like 350hp but always rated at 330hp....that big guns guy already backed down from me he lives by me and like plays games with people on here, he prolly has people do his work for him.....

    Actually I looked on line and the ones I've seen don't come with O2 holes. Mine must have been added. Maybe they added them for when they tuned the car so they didn't have to keep pulling the new front O2's in and out for the wideband o2 and used the sensors to plug the holes. I know my pipe has has the o2 bungs in it, I was actually going to use one for my wideband o2 gauge I'm installing in my car.

    He was just trying to give you some info on the ? you asked. No need to be rude. Your age is listed as 24, but judging by your maturity level I would guess somewhere around 15...

    Yeah, wasn't trying to be rude. Just trying to be helpful quick. Maybe I should have read your post in its entirety.

    Sorry for not doing that.

    Yes, I do hire out to do most of my heavy work as I don't have the time with being a single parent of 3 and holding down a full time job too. If I had the time for putting in CAMS, Cranks and upgraded valves, I would. My car is a daily driver though since I couldn't swing a beater for the winter. Maybe next fall will be different for me and I might be able to save some money on the hiring out.

    No drama required from me.

    I am the one that keeps giving you the infractions for your conduct. Your post above is about to get you another infraction as well. You better drop the internet tough guy shit or you won't be a member of this site any longer. When you get infractions, you should see who they came from. If you need to discuss this further, you can PM me, otherwise quit ruining threads with this nonsense.

    Mods should lock this thread and ban you cause all you do is start trouble and threaten people. It's not a good idea to ask for advice then insult others. Just shows how childish you are. Go ahead and threaten me too there hercules.. Ill get a chuckle about it.
