You should be 7.50's or better with those mods.

I think a stall would be your best bang for buck with those mods and tires.

Yeah i dont want to do a stall my car is 98% daily driver and 2% track and will never (prolly) be raced for anything but fun and i have talked with many people i trust about a stall and they say it would help greatly at the track but would make daily driving pretty harsh...i also want this car to last me 7-10 years

Yeah dont do a stall for ur daily we put a 2800-3200 in my buddies 69 dart and its barly street able. Attracks to much attencion when trying to drive "normal" id say tighten up ur ride with a cross member and weight jack the car (lower the back end and run a taller profile tire on the front then the back) this will help shift the weight of the car to the rear tires improving traction beefed up race springs and shocks and optionally a roll cage but not for safty its for structroul ragitity (saftys a bonus in this instance) the point is to get as much of the weight of the car to shift over the rear tires as possable with as little defelection or "twist" as possible. U can also relocate ur battery to the trunk. Now if u add a roll cage and cross member and bigger heavier parts and so on then ull want to up ur torque and hp a little more to so maybe cams or n2o ( i dont like n2o my self but for a 2% track car a small shots not bad the beauty is unlike a turbo or s/c u dont use it all the time) couple ideas to try out and u can try taking 5 pounds air out of ur rear tires while at the track should help some.

Do not i repeat DO NOT put weight jacking front drag shocks on the car if its a dd u will make the car to hard to drive around corners on the street been there lernt that.

90/10's on the front just means you learn to steer on the down-bounce...

True to stear on the down bounce its just a pain in the a$$ for a dd and it dosent really seem as though its needed in this applacation but yeah will deff help with a good launch. Not really sure should use them on a car thats only 2% track use though.

Not to say you don't know what your talking about, but you dot know what your talking about, a 3500 stall with lock up and a trans cooler and tune and you'll never know you have one until you mash on it and you realize your have spent money on the best mod for the money, I had one in my Lincoln mark VIII, went from 15.00s to 13.9s with out drag radials just from a stall converter

Re: 1/8 mile time

well it took a second of mine, went from 15 flats to 13.9s-14.1s, once it locks up its the same as any converter tho so i wouldnt be afraid it would ruin your DD ability, this was in a 4.6 DOHC 4r70w trans setup so your results may vary but it really really really woke the car up and then when i put 410s in 1st 2nd and 3rd where useless haha

Ok the 14.5 is when my Lincoln just had 410 gears and trac lok, then I blew the gears, my fault install problem (first time haha forgot the loctite) and put a 99 GT trans in with an edge racing converter went back to the track with just a high stall converter and a open rear with 3.08 gears and ran a 14.1 and look at the 60 foot time!!! This is a 4000 pound Lincoln not a mustang and I was spinning a lil bit too
