New best for me as well!





The car has a very simple set-up, and cheap at that! It consists of:

PulleyBoys MPS w/3.4 pulley
homebuilt 4" FWI
NGK TR-6's gapped @.055"
de-screened MAF
cutout
DHP PCM

Also, when I race, I add 2 gallons of 104 unleaded. I'm pretty happy with my "family car".

well, there's an easy 2 tenths with some sticky tires, but I'm hesitant to do that seeing as how it is a family car, and it would take away from the whole stealth thing I got going on. lol But, I believe with the addition of those, a set pf ported manifolds, a 3" downpipe, and 1.9 rockers and springs, the car could go 12's with a good launch.

What's funny is, I never even intended to go this far with the car. I mean, I really haven't done that much at all to it, but I never expected for it to take so well to the few simple mods that I did. And now that it has, it's really got me wondering what it can do with just a few more! Isn't that how it always goes though? lol

Man, I envy you guys who are still able to make passes at the track. Our only local track has been closed for the season since middle of last month.

don't worry, that was the last day for us. we could always drive a couple of hours south though and run in Steele, AL, as their track is open year round, weather permitting of course. I used to make the drive in my old SS on quite a few occasions.
