Don't forget higher hp will get you higher mph not always higher ET times if he can't get into that power band right away. Mmaybe he's running 3.08 gears?
Full list of mods? I read maurader TC, ported npi heads, custom grid comp cams, is that all?
I don't think with a 14.5 you will be beating any 3v mustangs or lightnings. But either way congrats on the new times!
I hope not! If he's running a Marauder TC and drag tires there is no way the 60 ft should look like that to begin with.
Not to dwell on this but
Just for an example cause it was the quickest thing to get to for data:
13.600 @ 099.46 Joel Bender - 96 TBird LX 4.6L/N2O 10/2003
13.717 @ 104.42 91BLOWNBIRD - 91 TBird SC MPX 10/2012
13.850 @ 096.50 95badbird - 95 T-Bird LX gutted, stock 351W N/A 2008
14.063 @ 097.84 John Speziale - T-Bird 3.8L SC 8/2012
14.076 @ 100.14 Wolfer - 94 t-bird LX 4.6L 2V/PI N/A 11/2012
14.245 @ 097.69 XR7 Phillip - 90 Cougar XR7 07/2012
14.500 @ 093.97 Mgino96tbird46 - 96 T-bird LX 4.6L 2V NPI on E85 01/2013
14.512 @ 096.03 Chris_Murder - 97 T-Bird 4.6L 4V N/A 11/2012
14.717 @ 092.45 Trunk Monkey - 95 T-Bird 4.6L 2V N/A 12/2007
So also take into consideration there are a couple SC's and a 4V motor on that list.
I'm not disputing the ET. Nor am I disputing the run. It is good. BUT, Its not pulling that hard up top to run that MPH is all I'm getting at.
TM what MPH were you running at 14.7? He's running street drag tires not Street tires.
Boys, I been doing this for a LONG time.
