I would like to run under that 11.50 myself.

With that MPH Kieth you should be able to run a 11.5x.

Keep an eye on VMP's web site they should post up when they will release the tickets for All Out. Then hope you have VERY high speed internet. I guess you'll see me there if I get registered. Then it would be the first time I miss Carlisle or some of it since I think 2003.

With a 2.0 AR you should be right there, spray it and you might be in the 10's.........:D

I just looked and it said a test/tune and pre-registration is on the friday before event date. Now I know why you said you need a very high speed internet..............:eek:

I'd like to get to the track at least 2 more times before she explodes...and to find some better traction.. 2.0 60fts arent getting me anywhere in a hurry !

My goals for this next season (or in other words between now and spring), is to get my motor built, in the car, and running. Sounds easy enough, but that also means....

1) Complete 6spd swap...5spd is still in car ATM.
2) Build engine (currently the crankshaft is sitting on my work bench, to give you an idea)
3) Design IC system...this one is all in my head ATM.
4) Install complete suspension system including: Tubular K member, Delrin bushing kit, 3.73's, MVIII control arms, Koni's, and all related junk.

I have no idea what the junk will run, I'm not even planning to up the boost this year. I just want to be able to drive it. Maybe I'll shoot for a 1.650 50ft time. That should be a worthy goal.....

6-speed with 3.73's and I'm guessing a FMIC? Dave's turning into a looney toon...........:p

Turning? You haven't been around long, have you? :p I deleted the AC and installed a FMIC back in 2001. Back in the day, this was loony toon, now high school kids are doing it in their parent's garages. :rolleyes:

This was my first FMIC. Made 313rwhp with a stock inlet plenum and a stock blower pulley (that's right no OD). Left for Hot Rod Power Tour the same day I finished installing those tubes. The RTV liiterally wasn't dry when we took off on our 5000 mile journey that day. No, I've definitely tamed down in my old age. :D

Well, you're real close with your current setup. I'm sure whatever you have planned will net you your goal. I just want to run what you're running now......with running nitrous.........:eek:

Get into the 11's. Then I am checking this box done, leave it alone and start on the 4.5 SVO. The motor will take the cat into the 10's; not sure about the driver though. Right now there is too much work going on and not enough play time in the garage. That has to change.

I sure hope so. The car has been running 11.7s off the bottle ever since installing the 1.7 AR in 2006. Thought the longtube headers and less restrictive exhaust would do it in 2008, but it made the same power and ran the same ETs. Then I thought for sure the new 4.2 motor with blower driven a little faster would do it in 2009, but it didn't quite get there with an 11.60 being the best of the year. It did pick up about 4 MPH so we are headed in the right direction.

So I'm really hoping a larger blower and upgraded fuel system for 2010 will do it.
