1/8th mile time with my automatic before tune from tom was 60ft 2.45 and a 10:68 time. after some adjustments and the tune hoping to get 10 flat. well see, track was closed due to high winds today so i couldnt test my 100+ octane tune out.

lol my best time in the 1/8th was 9.8 off the bottle. on the spray is a secret until FocusFest. ill be going for that fastest forced induction trophy this year at least. i should give some of the biggens something to worry about... i hope anyway.

anywho im eager to hear what time you made. careful on the tranny tho. the auto trannies do pop pretty easy. if you want big numbers you need to do a mtx swap soon so you dont get stranded at the strip like i did so many times before i started using a tow dolly to get my car to and from the strip. damn transmission mount bracket thing. ive replaced that thing at least 5 times now and i still dont know the exact name for it.
