    Chris, I think on the juice you might have gone faster. When I turned on the nitrous with 22lbs of boost the car made well over 500f/lbs of torque at 22psi the cooler charge really woke the car up. Boost is boost what you do with it and how to handle heat is whats important. The potential of the blower has not been well tested, the it needs a water to air IC with a large ice box. And some good tuning, till then the MPX provides the boost most need with Air to Air IC systems. When I first lent it to you I wanted to make sure you had a massive IC otherwise it would have not made much difference then my car. Your Automatic and being able to run low 12s proved that there is nothing wrong with the blower, it just that it has not been put in a set up that can use its potential. Leitem needs a very intricate OD system to overdrive his M90, we have a up to 30%OD on off the shelf parts put that on the hybrid and imagine the boost #s. Thanks for testing of the blower and I hope it kept you from being on the side lines for a good part of 2009.

    I was just saying that this poll reflects the best times of people from years other than 2009. Since I didn't run this year, I didn't post a time. But if I did post a time, which one should it be? From 2008, or 2004? Mike posted his best from 2009 which was slower than his best from 2008.....

    It doesn't really matter I guess, but I was just saying since I don't know what I should put up there.

    I have never ran mine in the 1/4, since I was not comfortable doing it with the stock disk/drum brakes. (I went off the end of the strip in 85, and spent 1 month in the hospital). I just completed upgrading the brakes, so hope to make a few passes in the Spring after upgrading the fuel system again. It was just starting to run out of fuel pump during the last trip at one of local 1/8 mile strips. I am replacing the head gaskets from that now.

    Turned 6.22 @ 109 in the 1/8th, so should be some where in the upper 9s in the 1/4.

    I wanted to do some extra light weight brakes, but did not fit my budget, or would not fit with the 15 inch skinnies.

    Starting on the Head gaskets this morning.
