    I feel for your transmission.


    My best guess will be VERY low 11's.

    Are you still running BMR's stiff ass rear springs?

    If so I would advise you to replace them with a pair of junkyard V-6 springs.

    Also has your pinion angle been checked since the install of the 9"?

    ET wise not sure if I had to just throw a # out there I would say mid 11's. You have a 28" tall tire on some 3.89's so I don't think your at the optimum gear choice for ET's.

    Has the car made passes yet? If so what RPM are you going through the traps at?
    Don't be afraid of the bottle!!! Be afraid of your tune!!!

    I'm not running bmr springs in the rear, I'm running QA1 springs up front and stock springs in the back right now. My pinion angle has been checked. And the car hasn't made any passes yet with this setup but it will here shortly in a couple of weeks. Do you still suggest that I get the v6 springs for the rear.

    Also what gear/tire size combo would you recommend, if what I currently have isn't quite right for what I'm looking to do?

    it is always recommended that you use the v-6 springs over the stock ones they are softer and transfer the weight alot quicker

    i think we definitely see some low 11's coming

    Are the 93-97 v6 rear springs the same as the 98-02 or are they different?
