Hmm. My 1/8 mile time was 10.342 on my 16.001 1/4 run (no trap speeds at the 1/8th, was 89.945 at the 1/4.) As it is I don't think you're gonna see 15s in the 1/4. :( Don't think those 20s are helping matters.

So is this the same track that you mentioned before? I've never run at an 1/8 mile only track before, but the 1/8 mile times I got at both 1/4 mile tracks I've been too, have been around 9.6xx seconds or so.

We don't have to worry about that because we have the flapper valve in the back... Fire and serious engine damage are possible though.

Then most people cheap out and go with a wet setup. Dry setup isn't much better on the northstar, because they up the fuel pressure, and our injectors don't open above 65psi. Using larger injectors isn't an option.

Direct port is the way to do it.
