Wow, those are simply amazing times for the mods or lack of mods that you have.
I assume that you already have a lid? Anyways, yes, the FTRA will definitely help at the track. Also, an ASP pulley should be worth a tenth too. 3.73 gears also should yield a tenth or two.
However, if you want to cut down that 60ft and step up the mph, you'll need a bigger verter(TP4000-4400) and a more powerful cam. I don't know how effective your head set-up is but all of that combined with ET streets or drags and you'll have very low 11's and 120+ mph trap speeds.
BTW, taking off the front swaybar should help at the track and suspension(LCA's, SFC's, maybe torque arm) should help a lot.

I already have 3:73 gears and ET Streets. I am not switching cams or heads as I want to remain with the hotcam and home ported heads. Terry since your car was so amazing with that "magical" cam you had and your MMS heads you made 405RWHP, correct? I made 406 corrected with the converter in normal operation, no tricks or buttons to play with. The converter could possibly be hurting me, but I don't want to switch at this point. I think the headwind of around 25mph had something to do with it since most of my friends mph's were down 2-3mph. I pulled a 118 last year with street tires, but not a good ET. All in all I am very happy and hope to hit 11.3-11.5 next weekend. We'll see.
Bah, put a real converter in that thing, then you might go faster <img src="gr_stretch.gif" border="0"> Congrats on the new numbers Brian. Can't wait to get my heads from Joe and installed.

Taking out the swaybar would be a good idea. That converter/gear combo should still be good for 60 fts in the 1.60's IMO. I think what would make the biggest difference is weight reduction. Your 60 ft's will drop & your mph will go up.
With a raceweight of say 3500 lbs, your car should be good for 11.30's at 119 or so with a 1.60 something 60.

Mods are in my sig, but I finally got the Yank tranny to shift. Here's the breakdown, the weather was in the 40's with a 15-25 mph headwind. I did a good burnout and eased up to the line. I brought the rpm's up to about 1,900 and left the line, it hooked on the ET's on 14 psi, but then it kinda spun a touch and then back on. Here's the timeslip firstname.lastname@example.org mph with a 1.8 60' and an 1/8 mile of email@example.com mph. Here are some questions, what can I do to raise my mph and lower the 60' times? I was thinking of installing FTRA and taking my front sway bar off and installing LCA's and SFC's. This is a totally stock suspension car full weight of 3740 with me in it. Any ideas on what it could be capable of with a better day and better launch?
