My best quarter mile time is a 12.743 @ 108.74 mph w/ 1.90 60'
This was at Orlando Speed (Spin) World.
Modifications: SLP Lid, Custom Exhaust, 3.42 Gears, Mickey Thompson Drag Radials.
My car is an auto (4L60E), and still has Stock Exhaust Manifolds.
Is that quarter mile time good for my mods?

I've never been to the track, but that's definitely a good ET and mph. Get LT headers, SFC, a stall and some 3.73 gears and you'll be haulin' ass!

Thats actually a really great time for what you have. Pick up some LT's and a tune alone and you'll drop a few tenths. Add a nice stall and gears, and id say in near perfect conditions, you could hit 11.99

But if the track prep is really bad that night, I lower them to 16 PSI.
Iíve never went any lower than 16 PSI.
I keep the front tires at 40 PSI.
Also a little tip, go around the water box. You donít want to get your front tires wet, because youíll pull water to the starting line.
And when you do your burnout, donít burn out directly in the water box. That will spin water up into your quarter panels, and the water will drip onto your tires at the starting line causing you to spin.
You want to go around the water box, then back your rear tires into the water, then pull out of the water about 2 feet, and do a burnout until you see some smoke, and then make sure to pull the burnout out a few feet so there is no rubber buildup on your tires because that will make you spin also.
Stage the car quickly so the drag radials donít cool off too much, and go on the third yellow light.
By the time you react and go on the third yellow light, the light will be green.
I cut consistent .05 to .08 lights (reaction time).

Yea, I usually stay .1 and under. Hard to be consistent with a manual though. Just wanted a little feedback on the tire pressure. I have Nitto drag radials and they aren't performing like I thought they would. Been running about 25 lbs. but my 60 ft. time is still 2.0**. I was doing that with street tires. Kinda miffed, so I'll keep toying with the pressure.

Great times and speed. It's hard to believe that you are getting that kind of speed with practically no mods. Is it possible the car was modded before you got it.98 Trans Am, A4, 3.73, 3200 Vigilante, LCA's, reloc brackets, sfc's, panhard bar, adjustable torque arm, XS long tube headers, ORY, SLP CNC ported heads and all the free mods tuned with EFILive.
