Went to cecil county not too long ago

I just put a 9.5 inch converter and jmod in my 1995 tbird. at the track i ran a 15.02 at 90 mph spinning first gear. it has a 99 mustang engine, untuned, all stock, with a 3300 converter, jmod, and 3.08 gears. Is this about where I should be?

Not bad considering the wheel spin and being untuned. Looks like you could use some gears!

It probably should be quicker!

But in all honesty you need tires, gears and a tune.

My stock 95 Non-PI with 3.73's, tune, underdrive pulleys and 27" tall drag tires went 15.12 @ 92+ last fall there. I was having a little bit of a problem with the shift on the tune at that time. Had it corrected this spring and actually ran almost the identical numbers at Mason Dixon this summer in the heat on street tires.

You really need tires (to hook it) to see what it can do before making the other changes.

tires will definetly help....a gear with a track lock will lower those times quite a bit as well....
I would recomend at a minumum, 4.10's.


fwiw, I went from 14.1's to 13.8's, (short times went from 1.99 to 1.88 60's) mph stayed the same.....only changes were going from DR's to full slicks, 3.08 open rear to 4.10 track lock, LT's, ewater pump...amd i think thats it.....like i said, I didn't get any "faster", just quicker..

Nick......................I'm back!!!
May you fly low and fast
rest in peace JL

ill definately try to get some tires for this spring, and maybe the 4.10s and TL. the converter i got is custom built and set up for 4.10s, so i did have that in the plan. if i run full slicks, how will the axles hold up?

I have 483 rwhp/485 rwtq in my '94 Supercoupe and I pull 1.5 60 ft. times with full slicks and mine are holding up fine.
