you know just gaining a few tenths is really good. Each tenth you knock off takes hp and the lower you go in times the more power needed to for each tenth. 100lbs. out of any car is also worth a tenth. Its also free lol to a point.

You be real happy with car without the n20 cause now you'll have p&p head and cams. The car will feel totally different. You'll be happy also when you do spray. tha only bad part is you'll be wanting a lsd for your tranny. Lets us how it goes and try to make a vid

ok guys so i did my first couple of races and damn am i satisfied. i went up against my homeboy with a 2000 camaro ss he runs 13.6 constant at the 1/4 mile. i beat him by about 1 car in a half maybe 2. and then i went up against a 2002 T/A ws6 on nitrous that guy runs a low 12 and he took me by half a car but he stayed peeling out 1st and half of 2nd gear. but theres a bad side to this i g popped a cv joint on the last race:(. other than that im satisfied i will post up vids once i get out of work.

did you do this on the drag tires? and how big a shot of nitrous have you decided on? u use the 125 or did you go bigger? i mean if you were within half a car of a guy running low 12s that still put you in that range. i mean you would have to be making 350-400hp to get in the low 12s

if youre gonna run that big a shot of nitrous you should get it dyno tuned for the nitrous anyway. not only will you be able to make even more power and get down the track faster but it will also be alot safer on that engine that you just spend so much money on.
