    Wow, that's impressive. That procharger really woke the car up. Why don't you post 60' time as well, and what other mods you have.

    60' was 2.0 and the mods are as follows:

    1. Mac headers
    2. Mac Y-pipe
    3. aftermarket cats
    4. Pro-5 shifter
    5. Ford SVO 42 lb. injectors (to facilitate the supercharger)
    6. Hotchkis strut tower brace
    7. Hotchkis LCA's
    8. SFC's
    9. electric autometer fuel psi gauge & autometer boost gauge
    10. Hotchkis panhard bar
    11. ATI ProCharger

    I think there's still quite a bit left in the car, I just need more seat time.

    if you had made it to the quarter youd probably have ran a 11.9-12.0@127.

    Looks like you have a 10 second car potentially.
    Nice #'s

    The prior owner had the car to a 1/4 mile track and it did run a 12.1, but not at 127. It was 119 to 120.

    Thanks!

    Looks like it was spinning its ass off. What was your 60ft? With that trap, you should be able to run low 7's with some stickies.

    Edit: Saw your 60ft. You got a mid 7 car for sure.

    Those Ford injectors are f*cking up your car.

    Oh,Ok. Thats a HUGE difference. Sounds like the driver mod. Like seeing a 05 VIper trap 108.

    Sounds just like my times in my cammed car. street tires was a 12.0-12.1@120 a few times with a 2.0-2.1 60's

    "Driver mod" On a few of the runs I spun over half the track. The drag radials I have on are bald as can be. On last run I did a much longer burnout than I thought I should've, but that really seemed to help. As someone else said...mid-7's with some stickies shouldn't be unrealistic.

    LOL..I was refering to getting thrue the gears and having a way higher trap speed. I know your launch sucked but apprently you can get thrue the gears.

    One step at a time.lol
