1/4 mile times

Went to the track a couple weeks ago

1/4- 14.158
60'- 2.096
mph- 96.48

This was from my best run of the day, had another run with very similar numbers and two earlier runs with traction issues when I tried to load the torque converter just slightly. Both of those runs netted roughly 14.9. I am thinking with drag tires and being able to launch at more than idle would get me into the high 13s if not very very low 14s. I am PI swapped, accufab tb and plenum, 03 gt intake tube and MAF, kooks headers, catless mandrel exhaust system and magnapack mufflers, 3000 stall modified marauder tq converter with j modded trans, aluminum ds, 3.73 trac loc. Car has also been tuned.

teksid block with forged internals, MHS stage 2 heads and cams, 80 mm 03 Mustang MAF, Bullitt intake with Accufab oval throttle body, Kooks headers, 2.5 inch catless true dual exhaust, w/x pipe and Magnaflow Magnapacks, Dirty Dog 3000 stall marauder tq converter, BC automotive built 4R70w transmission ,MMX Dynotech Drive shaft, Trac loc differential with 3.73's, custom made fssb, and lecb, rear shock tower brace by Azzkickers, JL subframe connectors, Eibach 1.5" lowering springs, koni shocks, dyno tune by Tim Barth at Mr Norm's garage

Street tires are just that good, for the street. Get some Mickey Thompson drag radials and you'll be fine with traction. Good job otherwise!!

your times are exactly what mine were before I added gearing, slicks and longtubes.
I did not gain any mph, but my e.t. wetn from 14.15 to 13.85 just making those changes.

If you could shave a few pounds, you could easily get that 13 second timeslip.

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

More converter will help the 60 foot however those units I do not suggest loading them. I ran one in my car and found it did best flashing it for all it was worth. Hold it just above idle and them stomp the throttle for all it is worth to get the flash and multiplication from it. At the shootout this year my helper ran one in his car and it was .4 better doing it that way.

+1 on both.

Last fall @ Byron (first time on the track with my bird) I held up against the convertor for the first run, and blazed the street tires halfway down the track like an eediot. Second run I skipped the unnecessary burnout, flashed it.....and shaved 2 seconds off my et. lol

I actually felt pretty good about my experience there.....because I learned how NOT to race my car.
