    Dont know of the name "Maro boys'' you mentioned ? So you only go to Sac and Infineon?...Your video didnt look like no track to me? Looks like a good old fashioned street race.

    Yeah I hook pretty well. On 275 555Rs I cut 1.9 60s. On my buddies slicks I cut a 1.7 but the were 28" and I didn't have enough gear for them and came through out of my powerband. And yes, I'm pretty light. I've done all the typical weight reduction. My fastest time was when I removed my front and rear crash bars, and 75% of my interior. I put it back in though. That was just for shits and gigs. If I wasn't looking for a GTO I'd put it on a shot and cut 12s all day which is good enough for me. I'm not looking for a race car

    ^^^yup that's what my goal is. Have a consistent 12 second car, over 110 MPH, and still get over 25 MPG. This Spring the family and I drove the WS6 to Hershey PA, 559 miles from our house, and she got 28.3 MPG on the way back. 2 weeks later I did the 12.97. I need an LS6 intake, I'm saving some fun $$$ for it. There are always other things demanding a few hundred dollars tho!

    Yeah, I honestly love my cobra. It's light, handles well, has great top end, but, it's up there in age, small, and not much creature comforts, that's why I'm switching it up

    Yup, very common problem. IMRCs being stuck rob about 25-30 WHP and the same for TQ. Ford didn't do much quality assurance with those

    Intake manifold runner control
    They close part of the intake below a certain rpm then opens once its reached kinda like v tech for ford IMO

    Sort of, a much less technical version. VTEC actually changes the cam profile and timing, IMRCs just open another port in the intake manifold. I helps with torque below 3K, then opens up for top end. When they operate properly, they're great. Problem is, they never operate properly lol

    You'll still take him. Especially from a roll. A full 1/4, you have him pretty good, unless your car needs a driver mod lol.

    Actually, from a roll is where he's going to be the strongest. If he's getting the jump on you like that consistently, when he gets all his top end back, you're going to really have to fight to reel him back in. Again, it's nearly 30 WHP you lose when those stick closed. Mine failed as well, it was a dog. ZERO top end. I said eff it and deleted them

    I figured those 4.10s were helping him on the 0-60, not the 30 and up to triple digets. '98 Cobras, after the factory fix, were running 14.0? About the same as a new 2.73 AT LS1 I thought.

    My stock 2.73 AT LS1 with a lid ran a 13.44 on streets as stated earlier. I took it to the track hoping to break 14.0. First pass was a 13.87 and it kept getting quicker on each succive pass as I figured out how to drive it through the traps.
