You got time slips for that 1/4 mile? That's a pretty lofty claim unless you meant mid-high 13s. The car looks good, regardless.

SS!

No time slips, still working on getting it timed, published times stock are 14.3 at 100 mph and 5.7 to 60], the Trifecta tune gets me mid 13 and 5
secs even, at least. Not many cars can beat a 13.5 unless a V8 or a blown 6. I'm also lighter than most cars by 200 to 600 lbs.

It wouldn't surprise me if you broke into the 13s with over 300 horsepower and the low weight, but common racing etiquette is time slips first, brag afterward. Go hit the drag strip whenever it's opened back up, it's a ton of fun! Be safe on the street, watch out for cops.

I look forward to seeing you around the forum!

Have the Trifecta tune and the K&N CAI, yet still need another 30 hp or so (350 or so at the crank) to break the 5.00 second barrier....curious how you did this.

Also interested in your comments about the lowering springs and if it is worth it. Any other handling improvements?

Ok so I'm not sure yet,, my first summer on Michelin Pilot Sports, still too cool for them in TN,, about to change, I still wonder if my NANKANGS NS25,, Front worn off and rear in rhe garage, because they spin a bit hook up better to 60, like 75 bucks at Walmart, so....I KNOW the Michelin at speed cut the rain at any ant speed when new. And we will see in the real summer. But...... here is the real question...I can figure out the tires, What do I do about the summer turbo lag, or general pedal not quite a stumble,,?
