I know, but I'm never gonna learn if I don't do it myself.

Tune is fine, driver that needs the work. Dyno was at 470rwhp on a mustang dyno.

Still trying to get time slips up.

A CAI and a tune alone should have you where you are now. I would get a second opinion on your tune or get someone that can launch to run it at the track for you. Your times should be hella faster.

How much power was it making on the dyno?

You might be a troll if:
You go into forums for product you have no intention of buying.
You repeatedly tell people why the product you bought is better then what they bought..you repeatedly tell them 67 reasons why.
40% of your posts are releated to the direct competitor of the forums products.
constanly inserting snide remarks about the product but then insert to get mods to think your just playing.
LOL, I love your sig, it is so true.

Nitto DR - only option for the stock wheels at this point. Being that I am not very experienced at the track I can't really comment on how good they are. I paid $570.00 installed. I'll repeat what has been posted many times on here and told to me by many people- you really need to heat them up to get them to hook up.
You combination is very close to what we did in the second phase of our Hot Rod story. Mine made 464 at the wheels and ran 115 plus in the quarter.

I took a lesson from the OP and used a set of Mickey Tompson ET Street Radials on ZO6 18" front wheels. That helped my 60'. With the Nittos I was spinning through 1st,2nd and part of 3rd gear.

My car also weighs over 4000 pounds with me in the car. I also have a bronze metalic clutch in the car. I slip the clutch and this deal holds up run after run. No stink like the stock rag clutch.

I launched this thing at 6000 RPM and it BOGS LOL. A little slip helps get the car rolling.

Good luck!

Robin

Should have gone with the smaller wheels and tires.

Anyone interested in a almost new set of Nitto DR's

How much for your clutch set up?

What did your best runs clock in at?

Ran 11.90's with a small shot before the Mickeys and Kooks headers. THat was at 118.

Added the Full length headers and the short (fugly) tires and ran 12.10 at 115.3 off the juice.

Then I tried a .063 jet at 100% on the controller. The car went slower ET spinning through 3 gears and ran the 125 at the stripe LOL. It was ugly.

I needed to make some more passes to find out what it liked but that was the last pass for the night.
We got our results so it's on to the next deal for me.

Don't know the cost on the clutch. It's probably near 500 to 600

I'm heading to strip tomorrow night. Hopefully I will continue to improve my launch and get some good numbers.

I'll be keeping a eye on your progress in Hot Rod. Feel free to update us before it on the stands though.
Thanks for your input.

TC - I would be interested in your Drag Radials if you want to get rid of them.

The best time I had at the track was a 12.6 on the stock Pirelli's with a 2.2 60'. It was humid as hell that day and the track was not prepped. I am going back to the track this Saturday and the track will be prepped and it should be cooler with less humidity. My car dynoed at 518hp and 503tq to the wheels. I have G-Teched it and it did a 12.2 at 120, so of I can get close to that on the stock tires I will be happy but I am shooting for high 11's.

Speed,

I am checking into the cost of smaller wheels and tires over the next couple of days and will pm you by Friday if that's the direction I decide to go.

Nice car by the way, I've been watching your build, looks like everything so far has turned out great. Enjoy!!

Are you power shifting or granny style?

Your run from the 8th to the 1/4 should be faster too.

FYI my LT/CAI l99 8th mile trap speed was 87.7 and I ran an 8.30.

From there you had 88.7 and ran an 8.26.

What happens after that? Your car with over 100 more rwhp only puts 2/10ths on mine.

I hope Im not coming off like a jag or anything, as I would really like to help you out. If I had one guess I would say your granny shifting. Leave the pedal to the floor through your shifts. Its kind of scary at first, but if you practice it, it will become natural when racing.

To be perfectly honest with you, I have believe that it's all in the driver. I'm keeping on the gas till just before I hit my rev limiter, off the gas til after shift then back on the gas. I have only been down the track three times.
I'm going tonight and hoping my times will get better with more time in the seat. If you have any suggestion (granny shifting) I'd love to give them a shot.

Before you go to the track tonight, practice some power shifting....its scary at first. Once your on the gas, dont let off for shifting. But if you are going to do that be sure to practice a few times on the street so you dont mess up at the track. My guess is that you are shifting pretty slow. You really shouldnt feel the car lug during shifts.


Also I would drop a few psi out of the rear tires to hook up a little better. Its not going to affect the run down the track.
