Niec numbers though. I'll be willing to bet you'll hit mid 14's with a new clutch.
Yeah I know I dynoed low. IDK what the problem is, but I want to try to get a Cosworth header to see if thats whats holding me back.

whoa what up!! I was there too it was awesome two FF memebers there I was totally amazed. It was fun hanging out though we really could'nt talk to much we spent so much time in our cars trying to stay warm and not to mention the wait. I have to go find mine and post them. I was very suprised with my car since I was'nt at the weight I normally run at. The best part was when me and MightyMouse got to run togather lol I was thinking wow his car is'nt that much faster than mine. When i told him he said he had to back out of it I called BS on him and He wipped out the ole' laptop and slapped me across the face with it lol he was right lol proved me wrong lol. That was cool how you were data logging everything. I was so happy to see two foci show up.

ok I found two of my timeslips.


r/t-.191
60'- 2.396
330- 6.718
1/8- 10.310
mph- 68.60
1000- 13.420
1/4- 16.051

best run that night

r/t- .402
60'- 2.365
330- 6.648
1/8- 10.203
mph- 69.26
1000- 13.281
1/4- 15.888
mph- 86.29
and this was with a almost full tank of gas, sub still in the back, and the good ole baby seats for when those pimpin' times need to be stopped lol. Now my best run ever was with a 1/4 tank of gas and everything that was'nt bolted down gone and the sub and its huge heavy box gone.

r/t- .713
60'- 2.351
330- 6.543
1/8- 10.084
mph- 69.61
1000- 13.159
1/4- 15.794
mph- 85.10

If I was at my race weight I could have easily hit a new best time but there were so many people there. I still have alot of fun though I really really really wish we could have ran more.

Oh btw. I forgot to mention, after you left we got one more run in and FoSHO managed to pull out a 15.6 I believe. Have to wait for him to chime in to be 100% sure but I'm pretty sure it was a 15.6 something something.

I know right you even let completly off the gas. It just renforces my hate for you duratec guys lol us poor little zetec guys have to do alot of catching up lol. I'm not mad at ya'll mainly ford for screwing me out of a dura two times. The way you passed me is the way my friends dakota does I get pretty far down the track and then ya'll just pass me like I hit the brakes or something. Once we got past the the little laser you were so far ahead of me that you braked and were turning while I was still slowing down. But my car ain't so bad for a little ole' zetec is it? oh and thanks for scaning my car for me and clearing the code's I just replaced my intake manifold gaskets trying to figure out why its running lean but all I did was seem to make it worse now it lopes when I start it up I think I made a bigger vacume leak or something. going to try the the tb gasket and replace my alt. wire that goes to the starter I noticed that was'nt such good shape. My car runs great when getting on it and what not but it just won't idle good at all. I've known its been running lean but it finnally threw the light for it. I've replaced alot of things and was really hoping that the intake gaskets would be the fix but the search contiues.

What!!! I'm pretty sure I've could have gotten that close too it was really good air that night. that was so funny that when he ran he got a 16.052 and I got a 16.051 that was funny though scary for me since all he had was an exhaust.

Yeah your car did alot better than I thought it would. I figured meh another mid 16 second zetec. But you held up pretty damn good, now all you need to do is get that 60' down to a mid 2.2 and I bet you could be right around a 15.5 if not a little faster.

But good luck with the lean issue hopefully you'll figure out what the problem is.

thanks right now I'm more worried about the hp issue I need some cams and I got the tune on the way but i really can't use it till I figure out the lean issue. And lets not forget my old cyl. head waiting for a p&p. The 60' is more of a driver issue I hate to say. Before ya'll showed up I liquidfiiyed my tires in first gear. But it so cold traction was a problem which you saw that one civic that t'charged to an inch of its life never even got any traction. I even got a 3rd gear scratch on that run with you I never ever have gotten a 3rd gear scratch at the track till that time. Funny how you guys were putting out some hp but had no clutch to hold yet here I am little ole' zetec me with more clutch than I could ever burn up lol
