honestly, i wouldn't hope for any more better times w/ a 75 shot. i would think mid 14's. If you get 160 whp NA, then u will only be at 10 whp more ish than w/ ur 125 shot. If you sprayed 125 on 160, and u have built internals, then you will be maybe high 13's. but on a 75 shot, i wouldn't expect it.

Also a 13 in a 1/4 w/o slicks is quicker than you think it is. Say your linged up with a mustang gt and you both get the same time but your mph is a bit higher. Now even though you had the same 1/4 et from a 45 roll you would beat him because our cars have less traction than rwd cars so they always get a slight jump a head. So in all reality even though your times are the same your probably going to be faster than it in the long run.

^^ i agree!

get some slicks and see what you can do. thats what i need to do. i did 14.1 at 105 and im hoping for mid to high 12s with slicks. but yeah ive raced a lot of mustangs, camaros, vettes, 350zs and they all get me at the start and most of the time i pass them back after i stop spinning

ill say mid 12's with slicks and 100 shot. if u mph over 105 you should be good to do those kind of times. my car did 14.2 @ 103 on 18's with only a 100 shot of nitrous. no reson why you cant get into the 12's with your mods.

12s??? He would need more than 300 whp, more like 350 and one heck of a launch. CFM made a 12.9xx car on 32x whp. w/ full slicks, lsd, and a profressional drag racer, from my understanding at least. the car was completely gutted. so 12's on just a 100 shot?? he would have to make over 200 whp NA + the staged nitrous cause w/ fwd, you can't spray till 2nd or 3rd gear!!! i would say 13's if ur really lucky!!
