Hey John, if all goes well tomorrow with my car, me and some people are heading for Byron Sunday! I had a nightmar with my flex plate, so I think! Had to pull the car apart again and use a TCI flex plate. Hopfully I will be all good now. Good luck with the Tune, I bet you hit that 11 now! That guy is working wonders on these cars!

Oh man I'm curious about this for sure. I'm hunting for 11's too, I think 18's and a stall might do it.

I don't think it was negative DA when I ran but I can check when I get home.

The oil cooler that is bolted to the side of the block was leaking at a corner maybe a seal but leaking too much to drive even for me.

Waiting for a tow am on side of highway

No sorry I was just about to leave actually and thought I would try again. I was never able to really flash the converter and leave hard. Like on this 12.06 pass, I foot-braked it to 1500 and rolled out. I might become a member of the slicks club next year.

I just removed the cooler. It's a terrible design, and dead weight.

No headwind. Lock-up might be a spot off but the front half was strong, 12.06 and 7.72/90.5mph were all new bests. I did go 113.6 two outings ago won't be hard for us to figure out the happy medium.

Nspah, we thought about doing that at the track but it looked too complicated to do in the parking lot. I'd like to see pics on how you did that. I bet the COPO's don't have this setup.

Just use a solid upper rad hose and use the oil crossover piece from the f-body/vettes. the cooler bolts in the same location. its literally a 5 minute swap, two 10mm bolts and a rad hose
