    get a stall asap. itll wake things up a bit.
    word of caution, watch that 10 bolt rear on the dr's. but i think youll be fine since youre an auto

    stupid but true. From the factory your blade at WOT is significantly less than 90 degrees. Yes, i have done the mod on my car. Every little bit helps. You just grind a little metal off so it can open more. If you have an autotap program you can see the exact degree #s and do it very precisely. But if you don't like most of us, then just you your eyes and stop before it looks like 90..

    so you say go with a stall before the other mods? my car went 13.57 with nothing done on street tires. Arent the stall converters supposed to shave 4-5 tenths? that would put me right at about 13.00

    its your choice, but either way a lid & DR's or a stall and you will be very close to your 13.00

    yea... i think i might go with the less expensive of the options. the lid filter and drs. then this summer i'll probably end up getting a stall... i never expected to be that fast stock... so i was planning on getting all of those right away... now my plans have changed

    oh shit yeah get a lid right now, thats mandatory. all i know is if i had an auto i would stall it first thing. why not squeeze everything out of the stock set up first ya know??
    guy i run around with has a 00 z. mickey thompson drs out back, huge!!!!
    he has headers, y pipe and a magnaflow catback, 3200 stall. hes running 12.30s last time i checked.
    pretty sure he has the headers....

    sportsman is an nhra bracket racing class that cars can be 13.00 and slower... im just starting to drag race and some of the veteran racers say that i need to race this class for a while until i get better at racing... its for points and its all about consistancy
