    I'll have some play money here soon and am trying to decide what to do with it. I have a front runner in mind but curious what you guys think.

    if you ever get tired of your nose bleeding you could always move down off the mountain and run some decent times.

    I'll give it a few more votes. I'm sorta on the fence between 2 right now with a preference for one of those maybe but it could go either way. I can pretty much make arguements for all of them.

    The problem I have with modding the GTO is I don't wanna sink all the supporting mods into it and it's my DD so it's kinda nice just having a stock car to cruise around in that runs mid 13's without the headaches mods come with. I would love to ram a little 224 in it though with springs and pushrods. I'd want headers, pulley, and all the other junk that supports a cam so it's start to get pricey for something that's just a DD.

    it's ok, my tune still needs some work but I'm getting it squared away slowly but surely. I ran a 12.1 on it last year with a bad tune ( 4 degrees of knock the entire run) and the 1-2 shift at 5900 and the 2-3 3-4 shifts at 6000. My 60' was a blazing 1.8 on that run.

    My best runs have been on 1.8's too. Spinning.
    Nice powerband with that set-up I am sure.
