Ok when I went to the track I had to rev the piss out of my car it stops making any real power at 5500rpms but to make a good time I had to rev the dog piss out of it 6500rpm no lower. I ran a 15.8 95+degrees outside. The key to it was the launch I really had to slip the clutch you just could'nt dump it at all or all you would do is spin. 15.8 at 85mph I could'nt shift into 4th I had to keep it in 3rd screaming acrossing the finish line I even hit the rev limiter on one run I thought that would be my fastest but it was'nt the launch wasnt good. I also ran my car like 25 times there were'nt that many people there I ran it back to back first time drag racing at a track and let me tell you practice definitly make perfect. The mods I have are a cone airfilter (which fell off most of the runs the best run was the one that I made sure it was on so I think thats why I could;nt break into the 15's I was running constiant 16.1 2 3"s) 4-2-1 race header and magna flow exahaust and a ported TB. My first run ever I ran a 16.3.

I bet I could have gotten better times if I only would have checked under the hood. The air filter was lying across the MAF so it was half blocking but all well there is always next time.
I started out with nothing and I still have most of it left
