Pretty nice time for a N/A car...albeit a pretty modded one.

I see your 12.8 at 116. What do you have done to your car?

12.209
1/4 Mile MPH: 119.450
1/8 Mile ET: 7.980
1/8 Mile MPH: 94.740
0-60 Foot ET: 2.090
Temperature F: 81.0

NOT A CHANCE at 81 degrees with a 2.1 60 foot. AND THERES no way a stock V can trap 119-120

Yeah, going by the 60' he probably spun a bit which will tend to make your mph higher. 485 rwhp is hardly stock, but damn when is somebody gonna hit 11s.

Is it gonna involve a new air induction system?

Nope. There is no such thing. It is a figment of the imagination.

My comment was in reference to the dyno testing done today on a new methanol tune. A certain speedy V just gained a wee bit more power. :)

Damn! I just sent my PCM back to you for a quick touch-up for my track day next Monday. Guess I'll be paying for shipping on a new tune when I finally install my methanol system (which is sitting in the garage right now). How much more power???

Not a great deal, around 8 hp on a mustang dyno, but the safety factor is big.

BTW Rick's tune was already right on the money, the dyno tune made only small adjustments. Basically a waste of money. Big KUDOS and PROPS to Rick.

You hitting the track this weekend ? I plan to take mine out, finaly get a chance to run it with all the bugs worked out. I am keeping my fingers crossed and going to try my best to get in the 11's.

Dyno with my current tune made 525rwhp, and 525rwtq on a dynojet. I think I have the power to get there. Here in texas were at damn near sea level, +400 feet to be exact, but unfortunately its going to be a hot day, and I am hoping for some cool night air.

I will be at the track on 8/16, and if I hit 11's everyone here will hear about it :thumbsup:

You definately have the power, a lot more than mine. Good luck and don't break the diff. Hot here also. You sure won't need a bottle warmer.

Honestly, I am really not expecting to get in the 11's this time out. I think it will be all in the 60', and I will also need some decent air. Daytime temps will certainly be in the high 90's, and since the track is out away from the city I am hoping for mid to low 80's once the sun sets.

any advice on how to get a 4000lb car to 60' without killing the diff ? I am currently using the BMR metal cradle bushings, and a BMR pinion brace and I have '0' wheel hop (at least on the street, i know the track may be a different story)

I launch at 1500RPM and ride the clutch out. No power shifting, just fast shifting. Be careful with that 150 shot and the high temps. What RPM do you shift at?

How did you do?

oops typo on my part track day is Saturday the 19th, so I will let you know in a few days. :thumbsup:

and my shift points are currently 6800 motor, and 6400ish on spray.

on the street I can leave at about 3500 on the tires I will be using at the track (19's) and just have to ride the clutch a tiny bit. Very little wheel spin, I have the stock clutch still so it absorbs most the hard impact of the spray and just hooks and goes. I am sure it wont last long that way, but it will work to my advantage for now.
