Took it to the track this weekend and I got one pass on it. Not sure on the weight but it is a convertible and I weigh 265lb so I would guess at least 3700+. The DA was 2145ft temp 82.4. I see a twelve second pass in it with a few more passes and good air.

13.14 @ 103.8
1.71 60ft

The owner ran a 14.75 this was his first time down the track so he needs to practice, he missed a gear.

The exhaust is hurting it some but I think he is going to leave it the way it is for now. It has a catted xpipe from BBK I believe and stock back half with flowmasters so 2 1/4 after cat.

I'm really liking following the progress on this car, as its giving me a LOT more direction to follow with getting to where I want to go with mine...

And BBK catted x-pipe and 2.25" sounds like a lot of restriction for that setup- I dont have a ton of scientific data to support that but the seat-of-the-pants dyno claims a nice gain on much less engine than this with simply open 2.5" x-pipe and 2.5" flowmaster cat-back...

I agree the exhaust needs to be changed and the heads are definately a little small for this motor. But with the cam thats in it NOS should pick it up real well.
