I think you might want to invest in some drag radials, learn how to launch the car as it is set up right now. You haven't even come close to utilizing the power you already have with a 15.5 ET.

Just my opinion, though. But until you learn to launch the car, and get some traction, you aren't ever gonna hit 12's (you'd have a heck of a top end speed, though)

Same here... I thought the spray would eat the blades up. Unless of course you are going to spray after the SC/IC right before in goes in the motor.

my launch hurts me the most when im at the track, my r/t are always like .6.. something then my 60' is about 2.5

I think its my clutch thats killing me not my driving. When i get lined up and start letting the clutch out the rpms go up and the car doesn't move till its like i am about completely off the clutch and it still takes a second

Then add the humidity thats here in FL, i usually run better than any svt's i see at the track with simliar mods.

The PW manifold is begging to be plumbed for a direct port nitrous set up.

<-------Check the location

I probably race the same strip you do (Orlando Speed World) unless they still have that one in New Smyrna?

My best time before adding the nitrous was a 15.1

Drag radials will help your 60' times a ton at OSW

run those Conti's on the street, and get an extra pair of wheels (lightest, cheapest you can find) mount the drag radials on those wheels and use them only for track days, that's what I do.

I run Bridgestone Potenza S03 Pole Position tires on the street, but when I go out to the track, I air up the two rear ones to 51 psi, and trade out the two fronts for the BFG drag radials mounted on 2 Centerline Billet wheels (12.5 lbs each) It didn't cost as much as you would think

i was thinking that the powerwoks would be a great manifold to plumb for a direct port kit. honestly with a supercharger i dont think i would run more then a 50 shot. with a 50 shot, PW SC, traction, good launch, good tune, and good driver you should be able to break into the 12s no problem. but seriously get some drag radials.
