The car is a stock cast iron 96 shortblock (Not Aluminum), PI conversion with a Bullitt Intake and TB. It has bolt ons, underdrive pulleys, 90 MM Maf, 30# injectors, Adjustable FPR and the like with only JBA Shortie headers. It has a stall converter, Jmodded stock 4R70 and 4.30 gears in an alumuminum Mark VIII housing. OF course it also has a good tune with the mods.
I run a ZEX Dry kit on the spray with a 125 shot. The engine and drivetrain is nothing special.
I have custom made Subframe connectors and DS loops under the car along with Adjustable air bags in the rear springs and aftermarket rear shocks.
The car in that configuration has gone a best of 13.1 @ 104 MPH and 11.89 @ 113+ on the spray and that is with full interior, all belts etc, with only the spare and jack removed. I run on front skinnies on stock aluminum spares and stock rear wheels with either a 26" tire normally on the motor and 28" drag tires on the Nitrous runs. The car in that configuration was weighed on two seperate occasions with driver at right around 3750-3800 lbs.
So if you know what you are doing, have the correct setup, learn how to drive it and make it hook, it can certainly happen.
As mentioned above, you may not agree with all that has been said but there is good advice on here if you choose to listen sometimes. But it all works together for the good if you get in touch with those that have done it.
You don't need or even want to spray a double shot of anything on these cars and stock shortblocks or it will not last long. Done properly it will do well. Mine is proof of that.
The configuration is slightly different now and I made initial passes late last fall with that. That is when it went 12.94 on the motor on larger 27" drag tires. It still needs retuned and tweaked. Hopefully we'll see what happens this season.
