    Replaced entire piece of crap sound system with Infinity Kappa Perfect Splits Coaxials & 12" Sub, JL Audio Monoblock & 4 way & Clarion 755 Head unit.
    She makes 244RWKW which is about 330HP at the T(y)res.
    Best run at the track was 13.175 @ 107MPH on a 37 Degree day (98F)
    Definately room for improvement. Thinking of getting a histall converter maybe 2900-3000 as well a OTRCAI.

    Nice car!, Yes a converter would put you in the 12's, I was running almost the same time before the converter and now 12.6's, just make sure you get a tranny cooler and some sticky tires.

    Heres a few more. The first 2 are from when I first picked up the car. My first mod was to change the number plate to KPH260. Gave me an extra .0001RWKW

    What size stall did you put in. I have driven a few with 3000 - 3500 and they are a little rev happy for my tastes. A tight 28 or 2900 would be ideal for daily driving I think.

    I had a yank 2600 stall(just a stock stall restalled out to 2600), but it didn't do much for my times. So a few months later put in a Fuddle 3400 with a 2.1 STR, I like it, my Z28 is my daily driver too. I have 3:42 gears, so feels a little tighter, but still have to bring the rpms up when going from a stop. A 3000 stall depending on the brand should feel pretty tight. I've been to the Townsville area back in early 90's.. Wish we had some of the cars you have down under.

    Fuddle is building a good reputation over here. I might visit Utah next month and pick a few up for some friends over here. Their website is very ordinary but the info is excpetional. Which converter did you choose? The performance or the street race?

    Back when I bought mine about 8 months ago, there was the street/strip and race ones. Now I see they have more options. Very happy so far with mine. I have never had a aftermarket stall in a car except the last Yank one, which didn't do anything..my car is a daily driver and drives great.
