    I see you have SFC's... have you done panhard bar and LCA's i dont know much about the v-force muffler,,, so maybe it flows great,, but maybe a cutout for the track?? those are 2 options that are cheap and may help a little....

    v-force is like a cheap flowmaster imo.... and you think a panhard bar and LCAs will really help that much?... iv been looking into full adjustable ones but am unsure if i need them yet?

    It's best to build your suspension up prior to building the engine. #1 weakness of our cars are the rear ends. Even under stock power they can break them. Spaz is on his 4th or 5th one.

    I just did the PHB, LCA,'s and TA. Combine that with the SFC's, STB, and Hotchkis Springs my suspension is tight. All I need next is the sway bars.


    One thing I'd recommend is ditching the K&N filter.

    A stall will really help you at the track till you can get a 12 bolt.




    What are your 60ft times? The suspension mods and practice will help lower them.

    at the track i have no problems with hooking.... my BFG G-force sports 255/50/16's are amazing... here in lima ohio tho the roads are slick i can break them loose through second gear(ROADS SUCK HERE) on a good road i always chirp them into second but not at the track!!!

    +1 on LCA's and PHB. Also consider a torque arm with relocation mount later on down the road. There's another member here selling a SSRA Big Mouth kit for a good price, this may or may not help but I would consider it if I were you. You could always yank the seats, speakers, and spare tire and jack out of the car.

    Suspension is good for the hook up, but only as good as your ability to put it to the floor. You could look into a wider DR (275-295), but your now looking at spending some $$$$ and putting your rear end at a higher risk. You could try and find a set of 'drag strip only' rims and tires and change them there.

    If you don't want to go tire, this is what I would do:
    1. LCA's
    2. Panhard
    3. Ported TB
    4. Smooth bellow

    If those don't drop you down into the the high 12's, then:
    5. Torque arm (with relocation and DS safety loop, Didn't recommend this in the first part to try and save some $$$$)
    6. Sway bars (drag strip specific)

    That will def. cover .2 of a second.

    I under stand some of the stuff if I was having traction issues but can't see it helping because I don't break loose at the track at all.... will this stuff help even if I don't have a traction problems? I know lighter wheels would help but wider tires would be a waste without a stall...

    I also read that I wouldn't notice a bellow till I really start making power... and I was thinking about a ported TB would that drop my 60ft a good little bit?

    Rear LCAs, remove front sway bar, relocate battery to rear of car,weight reduction:remove/drain windshield washer reservoir, remove rear seats, front passenger seat, spare tire and jack, and any miscellaneous stuff you have laying around in you car, eat a light meal and... take a dump before you race..
