Not much to brag about, but I had an opportunity to finally get to the track on short notice.

It was a rather warm summer day, so it was not the best of times and I had so little preparation, I hadn't prepared well enough to bring my tuning stuff with me so all we got to do was make a few passes and practice. ;)

It started out rather lacking with a 1.952 sixty foot and the 1/4 mile ET was 12.923 @ 107.11. We followed that with a 12.815 @ 108.98. The trap speeds were encouraging. :)

Then we stalled a little higher on the converter trying to get a better sixty foot time and eeked out a 1.900 sixty foot and was awarded with a 12.730 @ 109.17 time slip. After a couple more passes running 12.7's we hauled in a 12.701 @ 108.93 with a 1.858 sixty foot time. Someone told me there was a 12.6 in it, but I didn't necessarily believe it.

Until...

Density altitude was over 2,500', so I wasn't complaining with those numbers. ;)

JP,
You need to go ahead and throw some nitrous on that thing...................;)about a 150 shot should wake it up enough to run in the 11's...............:D

Thanks guys! :D

On this build, the best has been a 12.713 @ 106.93 with a 1.866 sixty foot.

It did run a 12.55 @ 106.73 back in 2011 at the SSHS on the previous build before things started south. :o

Once we get the tune optimized and running like it should consistently, that's always been the plan.

Great times JP, looks like you're finally getting the bugs worked out of the new motor.

Dig the new hood also!
