Let's take a look here and break it down:

y2k...................................sharon

F2 intake...........................intake
Cossi headers....................header
flex....................................flex

Ok, you're all pretty square far.

Then y2k has:

-BS delete
-Marcy's Xcal 2

Which is probably good for 2-3 tenths off the 1/4 mile.

While you have:

-TB
-intake manifold
-exhuast
-cams

Which should be good for about a 1/2 a second reduction in times. That means you're about a 1/4 of a second "ahead" (i.e. "faster") here than y2k.

And now the "non-power" items of:

-driver and rear engine mount

Maybe a tenth?

-cossie clutch and flywheel

These will not reduce 1/4 mile times unless you're already slipping (but is still a great idea to put on anyway so as to avoid future slipping!)

So bottim line as I "guesstimate" it is:

You're probably looking at a corrected 14.4-14.5 1/4 mile times.

And that's nothing to laugh at! It'd be great if you could turn a mid 14 sec. 1/4! (remember sharon, the stock 250 hp SRT-4's were turning on average "low" 14 sec. 1/4's)

But I guess only the Chrondek's can tell us for sure, so when you're ready sharon ...

Go racing!
