100% stock i took my car down the track only pulling out the spare tire and jack and ran a 15.9 @ 84 on the stock wheels and tires now i make 133whp and went 15.3 @ 90 on a high 2.3 60' i regularly pull mid 2.2's no bottle and on a 50 shot so estimated 185whp i went a 14.2 @ 100

i see the basic theory you have going but if depends on wayyyy to many variables. i think this tire/wheel setup will work nicely for him. big turbo boy over here has shown to know really what he's doing lol. i hope to hear some numbers other then hp/tq and im sure they will be nice low ones in this thread soon...

I was in the 15's @ 119whp.
A lot has to do with the driver too.

But any ways cool car and let us know what your run or we'll all hunt you down and make you make some passes lol.

^^Good luck I know how it is waiting to make a run. It sucks, I like those days when they aren't as crowded. Sometimes it takes a few runs to just to get used to the track conditions.

Those are the best days to go Thursday (if available in your area) and sundays are also good or at least they used to be. I don't go as much. But we are having a track meet next saturday. So I hope to have a new best time. I've done quite a bit since the last time there but I only got three runs in and I easily ran what I used too with a horrible 60 ft time. The tune I got gave me so much low end TQ I spun like crazy. It wasn't that bad last time I was there untuned. But I still need a few things to complete my little n/a build lol.

I think he will run any where between 11.7 and 11.9 AFTER the 2nd or 3rd pass. Jim is a great driver and can probably run better times in everybody's else's car than there personal best in there own car this is just said because I have seen him do it on numerous occasions....... He will run mid 12's until he gets a feel for the track and the he will hit 11's......... And I will personally put up his time slip to prove it.... Now after all this is said he already ran a 13.33 taking off from the line like he was in a hover-round chair LOL and short granny shifting in 1st and 2nd gear at 4300 with street tires.... So there is no dough in my mind he will break 11's this Saturday

you could do 11.9 with 350-370whp easy.
