I ran 12.7 with nearly stock SRT-4, 30lbs heavier than I am now, but I took out the pass seat, spare and rear seat to compensate. 1.78 60ft time, M&H slicks (23x8.5x15) on PT Steelies.

Bottles aren't for babies they are for people that don't want to drop alot of coin to make power. I love nitrous, its fun, its easy and its cheap (relatively speaking). You can make a ton of power with nitrous, its just people chicken out way before getting there or break something, which gets more jeers than blowing up a turbo setup which happens more often IMHO but people actually get props for spending more money???

What a strange world we live in...

With the power you make you should be running 10's, not 12's, even at 300+ you should be running deep into the 11's. Hell I know a 2nd gen Escort that runs 11.2 at over 120mph with full stereo installed, makes over 370hp on a boosted (b trim T3/T4) SPI engine.

Don't make excuses GET IT DONE!
How am I making excuses? I have hypothyroidism, diets don't work for me. Believe me, I done everything from Atkins to Weight Watchers. Also, muscle is lighter than fat? You sure about that? lol You did mention though which is the kind of answer I'd expect from that site. lol

We're not talking about a 28lbs difference. We're talking about a 200+lbs difference. When we're talking about 2,500lbs cars, that's a big difference.

There's also no way this car is going to run low 11s with 300whp. Maybe a RWD car but not FWD and not with anything over 2,200lbs. My runs were with the factory radio, passenger seat, headliner, speakers, SVT sub, half tank of gas, etc...

and YES, bottles are for babies. Real men get blown. Can change boost pressure with the push of a button, legal on the street, and don't have to refill > Having to change nozzles for more power, illegal on the street, and have to refill every 10-12 hits.
07 ZX3 - 300whp and I'm bored with it!
66 Mustang & 85 Bronco - resto projects!
06 MX5 - ...
