A V6 with a 2.083 60ft stock? That's better then a lot of SS's. You should give lessons.

Ok. I'm stuck on the heavy 20s so definitely won't be setting a record.

Okay all these mods & I'm not getting faster. My first post of a personal best time in this thread was post 135 It was a 9.1547. I just got all these mods: ARH long tubes, high flow cats, & H pipe & HP dyno tune and my best time was 9.1830. It was about 68 degrees that day around that time. I know a lot of factors play into these things but the weather was good both days, same track. I was really hoping for more improvement. What am I going to have to do to get in this list? What lack I yet?

You are correct... the weather was very similar. In fact the weather/DA was actually slightly better for this latest run. Last year the DA was about 875 while, this latest run it was about 835... so it appears your car is actually running slower and has the same or slightly less HP as both your ET and Trap speed are worse. The only thing i didn't double check was the wind... need to see what the wind conditions are for comparison... a head wind can make a difference.

Looking at your 1/8 mile ET, i would say your car is running right around a 13.9 - 14.0, which isn't terrible... however like you said, you added the new mods and seen, IMHO, zero improvement... to be honest, i'm not really surprised... One of the reasons i let my Camaro go... tired of beating my head on the wall... argh! The LLT never responded to mods the way i thought they should...

As far as getting on the list... guessing lighter weight wheels, probably skinnies up front... Ice down your intake... and most importantly, find a day with a very negative DA... Something like Black Friday at Atco, where the DA might be a -2000!

I looked at the info on both of your posts Ruby.

The DA were close as scrming posted. (See photos below.) I got differant results too, not sure why. Someones input was off? However it was slightly worse after all the mods.

However, you're info you posted in 135 was not accurate for the input information.

scrming and I use the DA calculator from this site.

http://www.dragtimes.com/da-density-...calculator.php

Maybe the fuel was worse this time and was pulling timing?
