i remember my last 1/8th trip...best of 10.3 with my sixer. i like 1/4 mile runs, but the fun of 1/8th tracks around here at least mean on test and tune nights you get in alot of run quicker.

Yeah being an auto is nice in some situations...one being drag racing. Tell your buddy he needs a new Plenum so that tb will do something more then look new and shiny.

Tune is not the big deal its made out to be in regards to pre 2005 Mustangs.. Does it help? Of course... It's not like the newer cars that will barely run after a CAI w/o a tune.. I'd love to see his times w/ a tune added and nothing else.
Doesn't sound like a TB helps the cause either.

Yeah i new it was broke but i work like 10-11 hours a day and when i went in for wheel balancing at firestone the quoted me like 85 bucks. I was like ill just wait till i have time. But as for my buddys car i was just surprised it ran that for one of his first trips. I feel like it woulda been a lot better with a tune though to adjust the shift points and a little extra power.

Thats right! I was told you have to pull the axle out to replace a wheel stud on the rear.

lol no...i had to replace all the studs in my '04 GT...just use an impact and pull them through the hub...go on youtube and watch a vid on how to do it....super easy

for example my friend snapped 2 studs a day before our track visit...i had him swing by my house after going to Advance to buy a couple studs ($1.99 each)..took me 30 mins beginning to end with my crappy impact

Last I dynoed it still had the crappy "high flo" cats on it and made 242sae whp later found out the drivers side was clogged lmao

I ran a 14.2 balling the tires off and with the clogged cat i mentioned above, since then I've made a lot more passes but short tracks only, 8.72 @ 78.8 in 1/8th and 11.25 @ 89.X 1000' which should be around 13.4ish in 1/4
