I'm thinking with some traction you should go high 90's in the 1/8th. Friend has gone 97mph in the 1/8th with 480rwhp in a stick car.

The 555Rs will help, I went 12.37 1.85 on mine with bolt-ons. Best I could muster on stock tires was 12.7's.

Yeah you need a flex fuel sensor kit and I would assume we need bigger injectors.

I might look at doing this in the fall.

They trap high enough to run 10's with traction. I look forward to seeing some run in person.
