    Good run FBJ.....14.40's is a damn respectable time for basically a brick on wheels. Looks like the 6L swap is working for you. Wonder hiw it'd do spraying i with a 100 shot
    100 shot would be an eye opener

    I have a maggy still sitting here for it though I recently upgraded the fuel system for it and thought I'd be ready, but now this thing is snapping the pinion in half with the stock 6.0 as is. So I'm searching for a semi float 14 bolt diff from a 3/4 ton to go through and stick under there. I'd guess with mild boost it would make another 100hp and knock a second off those times

    Worked for me but I have had it before where I had to refreash the page to get a photobucket video to roll.
    Yeah, I have problems with photobucket, usually they drop my pictures after a couple days. I'm actually surprised that this stuff has stayed up as long as it has. It generally gets removed after a day or two.

    Definitely the SS guy needs a driver mod. I wonder how the flip side woulda been, with FBJ in the SS (I know, it'd never happen since it's a Camaro lol), and the other driver in the tank.
    On test and tune or club track days in this case (same thing really) I'm also there to see what ET and MPH I'm getting and sometimes even tune the car. That's the biggest reason I took the truck down there and left the Fbodies at home (I already know what they run).
    The fact that I could squirt down track to the finish in front of a 5th gen SS was just icing on the cake I'm also there to cut good lights, good 60 foot times, and it's nice to beat something now and then too.

    Actually they encouraged lining up with whom ever you wish and run for fun. That's what it's really all about.

    Yes he needs more practice with his car, and I'm sure he will find a sweet spot if he runs enough.
