14.985 @ 91.19

still hitting 2.2 60's so that sucks....I need 4.10s

but I ran that and 14.992 and 15.004....

this was full street trim with the 17s on, crap in trunk, spare, etc. etc...

I'm going wed with my 16" DR's and no crap/spare to see how low I can drop it.

looks good. Don't know if you have auto or manual, but if you have an auto, get a torque converter and lower your 60's to 1.9-2.0 and shave .5 off your ET.

I have a converter...it wont drop below 2.2 60's...

I have 3.73s and my motor isnt setup for low-end grunt. I'm gettin 4.10s eventually to try and get it down to a 2.0

that's odd because i was cutting 1.9s all day long w/ 4.10s a converter and other minor bolt-ons. Maybe try setting up your suspension different? I had lowering springs and softer rear shocks w/ stiff front struts and rear sway bar.

im not spinning, just no low-end.

dont forget I have heads/cam. They make a lot more HP than they make tq, and shift everything way up in the rpm band. Its not a low-end setup and with the auto it just isnt THAT torquey.

I just need more gear.

what's your stall at? why not brake stall higher so you are closer to your power band?

i brake stall to 2400 still dont od nothing. flash stall is 3k.

between heads/cam/LT's w/ 2.5" pipe my tq is shifted at or above 3k..

3.73 never were enough and with me adding more and more top-end i need more gear.
