Guess my 1/4 time

My car: 2000 3.8 5-speed w/ K&N CAI, Scremin' Demon coil, MSD 8.5mm wires, NGK plugs, 2.25 inch true duals, IMCO mufflers, Pypes mini-cats (2 cats deleted), JET chip, MAC long tube ceramic-coated headers. What do you think I will run in the 1/4th?

Re: Guess my 1/4th time

My first question would be can you drive the car?

if you know how to drive it, i would say around 15.5 @ 90ish

and if you don't know how to drive it, more like 15.8-16.0 @ 86-88ish

Re: Guess my 1/4th time

you have an intake, exhaust, and a chip so if that chip has a decent tune and you know how to run through the gears quickly in that 5-speed i would say 15.0-15.4

thats what i ran with basically the same mods through an auto, my mods are intake, exhaust, pulley, and a custom tune and on stock rims i pulled a 15.0 @ 90.5

unfortunately, quite a few mail order tunes are a general mild tune for all mustangs, not specific to each mustang. for instance, my tune didnt work on 3-4 other v6's that went into the shop. they had detonation issues b/c he just tried to copy the files. so he had to take the file and slightly detune it for their cars.

so pending good to real good driving and ok conditions i give you 15.0-15.4

Re: Guess my 1/4th time

You should expect to run no better than 15.6. go for 3.73's and a posi unit and I am willing to bet you'l hit low 15''s...if you can drive

Re: Guess my 1/4th time

I don't see where 15.0 is pretty damn fast...but whatever lol.

With a good 60' I don't see 15.0 out of reach for his car.

I have about the same mods and have always ran low 15's, just can't ever get it to come off the line right.

no offense and dont take this personally, but can you drive? i am not implying youre a bad driver, but i am saying that just because you run a certain time doesnt mean that it is a typical time...

I run 14.0-14.1's in my 05 GT all day long, but that doesnt mean that that is particularly fast...Good drivers in S187's run 13.8-14.2, while GREAT drivers run 13.4-13.8...I don't proclaim to be a great drag racer as it's not something I particularly like (I prefer twisties), but I can hold my own...but I don't proclaim to say that because I run a 14.0, that it's hard to believe someone else will run a 13.7 or whatever with the same car...

The same goes for you; a 15.66 is a good time with your setup, but it's not crazy or out of this world for someone to run a 15.2 or similar with the same car...there is always going to be someone faster...

if i can find it, i'll scan it and post it. if not, in nov., dec., and jan, i'll be hitting up the track. hopefully with the wider tires i can hook better and get a slightly quicker time. the couple of 15.0 runs were on a 2.2-2.3 60'........i hope to dip in the 14s this winter with a little better 60' and a 5900 2-3 shift rather than 5200-5300.

Re: Guess my 1/4th time

I don't see why you can't run a 15.3 because I only have cold air, intake spacer, UD pulleys, exhaust, and wires and I beat an 02 GT but it was an auto and an convt.

an 02 gt auto is capable of a mid/high 14 stock and vert is about .2 slower maybe~

My 01 v6 5 speed (3100lbs) ran a low 15 / high 14 with gears/pulley/cai/udp/and tires that let me hook up~

Re: Guess my 1/4 time

My bone stock 02 GT auto coupe runs 14.8's in the 1/4 pretty consistently...pretty depressing compared to my manual 00 GT I had running 14.10s before I sold it.

Short throw shifter, drop in K&N filter, and under drive pulley.

Beyond that, just nitto 555 radials...not drag radials...

14.10 @ 99.8x was my best time in it. I think I could have gotten it down a bit more with some launch practice as I was cutting 2.0-2.1 60 times.

factory stock tires, short throw shifter, diablosport handheld and shorty headers... 14.036@99.98 ... I was so close to 13s I could feel 'em, I put some drag radials on then installed 4.10 gears.. on the test drive the car was tboned... d'oh

ahh well.. its probably for the best, insurance would have drained me dry, the buick's a lot cheaper to insure and its faster than I ever ran at the track with my 02..
