Re: what it will take.
swap gears to 3.73's and you should be able to in a 1/4 mile race
my buddy had a manual singleport with 3.90's (8.8 swap), straight pipes, and a CAI compared to my auto car back when it just had all bolt on's and i barely edged him by 1/2 car in the 1/4 mile
BV heads, P&P lower, comp 218/226 cam, 4.2 bottom end, 3k stall, flow 40's, O/R x-pipe, Pacesetter lt's, SCT xcal2 (93 Ortizperformance tune), Windstar upper, 65mm tb, CAI, 8.8 w/ 3.73's, SFC's, cut springs, KYB shocks/struts, MM LCA's
