New Best Time...(sorta)

Had the old Bird out at the track last night, got a new best NA in the 1/8 mi...

Old record was 8.425 on the long standing 13.11 run I made over three years ago. Last night in eleminiations, it ripped off a 8.412.

Yea just a tiny improvement(guessing a 13.10 1/4), but I'll take it.

, nice run Tom, you had perfect weather for it. It was nice and cool last night though alittle windy here.

I was over at the CNU car show yesterday after tuning on a friends 02 SS Camaro he just bought. With the stock SLP catback, K&N filter, and some LS1 edit tuning by myself the car put down 344hp/361trq on the Dynojet. We were both very impressed.

Congrats on the times!! Makes me wish I could go. :(

I honestly dont think you could exceed the cost of a new car buy installing new *stock* parts everywhere in your coug our tbird. Its just plain impossible. You could revamp the entire drivetrain/engine/suspenstion and still come out ahead.
