Hey what's up guys if you look above I have a picture of my best time to date. Disappointing I know. Numbers were faded so I had to rewrite them. I'm getting ready to install a dry nitrous kit on my car. I'm thinking on running between 100-125 hp shot And I wanted to know what you guys think I'll do on the 1/4



My current mods are, trick flow street burner intake, bbk throttle body, cai, non ported Gt40p heads, b303 cam, stock bottom end, 3.73 gears, x pipe and 275/50/15 nitto nt555r's with skinnies on the front.



I'd like to see if it's really worth it. I have a target number what do you guys think I'll do??

If you don't have good tires get ready to spin like a mofo.


Plus you got to learn the car.....shift points, launch rpm, how to slip that clutch ever so slightly, tire psi (DR).

Thanks for the input. I drive the car A lot so drag radials are good for me. What tires would you recommend? MT Street ET's?

Getting street tires really hot just makes the greasy and slick believe it or not. Also dropping them really low on pressure is not got also. You can drop them a little to like 25 but other than that you are just hurting yourself.


On street tires a good 60' is around 1.8xx. Drag radials are needed to harness the power after that.


Also what do you shift at? Have you played with shift points as with your setup doesn't really make much power past low 5,000 rpm.

That is a really slow time for the mods you have. I am assuming you have exhaust and all the other stuff? I see no mention of a tune, if you don't have one yet, that is your very next modification to the car.


Suspension/tune/driver mod should have that car in the 12s. I'm not kidding.

Thanks for the comment man I appreciate it. Do I need a aftermarket each to be able to tune the car?

No you need to take the car to a dyno tuner and get an actual chip for the ECU and a tune will be burnt to it. The guy near me uses Diablosport chips for 95-down computers. The bama one you have was a complete and total waste of your money unfortunately.
