Went to the track last night.

I went to Irwindale, CA to the 1/8 mile drag strip and was able to make 4 runs (Got there late because of traffic and there was a lot of wait time before each run)

1st : 8.905 @ 79.75 MPH (Launched at 1.5k RPM)
2nd : 9.559 @ 80.27 MPH (Launched at 2k RPM)
3rd : 9.068 @ 80.06 MPH (Launched at 1.7k RPM)
4th : 8.958 @ 80.41 MPH (Launched at 1.5k RPM)

Is this good for a 3.7L V6?

Next upgrade is the Accel Super Coil On Plug Kit, Then I'm going to Irwindale again to get my time to see how that affects it and I want my 100 shot of Nitrous to be installed around Mid-December (Hopefully).

Edit: What else can I do to lower my ET? I'm getting 305 drag radials pretty soon (Running 285's right now)

List of mods in "My Garage" Unless you want me to post everything here =P

Your mods are pretty solid. Aside from porting Intake manifold and heads or forced induction, the only real thing I can think would be weight reduction.

I don't know squat about drag racing and I don't know if your runs are good or not so I may be way off.

Those numbers convert into roughly 13.9sec in the 1/4 mile. Am I missing something?

They were renovating it... It's irwindale event center now, $20 to race on Thursdays from 5-10pm and $10 to spectate. If the spectator goes with you in your car, they can enter the track with you to take pictures in the middle intersection between the 2 cars.

What was the DA?


Like stated earlier that is a 13.9 to 14.0 run.

I don't know what the DA was.

For the 8.905 run it was :

60' : 2.067
330' : 5.814

Based on driving my GFs v6 auto with 3.73s, a 2.0 60' was the best i could ever get. To go faster you'll basically need a converter to really snap out of the hole, larger tires wont help there. Granted we had her car on 275 street tires... i imagine if i really tried to launch the **** out of it around 2k i may have been able to get more out of it assuming we didnt spin.

I'd also skip the super coil kit, thats not going to do anything for you. I see you're lowered, do you have LCA brackets? Valerie's car was cutting 2.0 60' with just intake, 3.73s and tune and running 13.7 @ 102 but i fully did her rear suspension with all BMR pieces, so she was getting off the line clean.

Also, what size rim are your 285s on / what size rim are you hoping to put the 305s on?

I think those numbers are great for a sixxer. My best has been 8.2 in 1/8 mile (no track pep) with my 5.0
