Track: New times
 
well before i say anything i need to put in clear that Albuquerque National Dragway has a Approx. Elevation of 5320 feet above sea level, thus my times will not be the same as sea level.

my 1 run was a blast i did a 15.87

then later on i got my new best.

Reaction: .127
60 ft: 2.422
660 ft: 10.176
1/4 E.T.: 15.826 @ 87.069 MPH

does any one know where i can find a calculator online that will help me estimate my times at sea level.

my mods: F2 intake, Cossi headers/flex/BS delete, Marcy's Xcal 2, Tein S tech springs, upper front strut bar, stock wheels on the front with street tires. somewhat good wheather, no clouds, full interior, 20 PSI on front tires, and a bad driver like me.

comments are welcome.

According to the NHRA, you should be close to 14.783@93.18MPH

Yup.

NHRA Elevation Correction Factor:

http://www.smokemup.com/auto_math/nh...on_factors.php

So for 5300 ft. above Sea Level, the correcton factors are:

.9341 for Elapsed Time (ET)

1.0703 for Trap Speed (MPH)

So what Egz said is correct.

so holy moly.... when I get my header/ flex/ cams/ intake manifold/ TB and Exhaust I should be in the low 14's - high 13's?

Not being sure what else you have, I'm going to say you are a little optimistic.

I will have this,

intake, TB, intake manifold, header and flex, exhuats, cams, driver and rear engine mount, cossie clutch and flywheels combo... I think I am not too optimistic.

Just wondering how that can be optimistic when he should be running 14.7 with F2 intake, Cossi headers/flex/BS delete, Marcy's Xcal 2 for performance wise when I will have intake, TB, intake manifold, header and flex, exhuats, cams, driver and rear engine mount, cossie clutch and flywheel?
