I was wondering if any 9’se and below uses their cars as a dally driver and what did it take to achieve times and still drive it every day?

yes,... a turbo and a split fuel system that you can run pump gas and turn on race gas at a moments notice.

That’s too complicated.
Is this what’s you are running?

Haha, some would say running 9s in general is rather complicated as well.

Given that it will be dally driven and will pass inspection as well

who cares about A/C?????

I dont.. never used it so it was ditched a long time ago.....
Power steering is the same and the battery is in the back.
Turbo sits where it once resided......
None of those things make a car a D/D :jest:

OFI kit retains stock acc and has the potential to run a t6 turbo...

does where the requirements i needed since it gets hot here in miami. However, the humidity is the real killer and no a/c means sweaty shorts and fogged windows when it rains... :)

Yeah we daily drive ours. During the cool air racing months we limit the miles because I have a race mod and a daily driver mode. It's mainly the dual XR1s and the race seat, but swapping araound a lot is a time consuming pain. We are running all motor. I could leave the car in daily driver mode and spray a 100 shot be deep into the 9s, but we bracket and index race so staying NA is our preference.

This is also why we maintained the 4L60E. I can't imagine putting the miles we do on the car without an OD. That would get old quick.

No fogged windows here :)

A turbo would be real sweet though. Something about an LS1 spooling up. Ya gotta love it!

If you get the right 4L60E the first time, you will save a lot of time and money, not to mention the piece of mind. Theirs only a few that have them mastered though.

NOS4ever.... you might want to take a peak at SpeedInc's street twin turbo set up. they have log style turbo headers that reatain a/c, power steering, and give great access to the spark plugs.

the kit will make 800+ horsepower with stock cubes, a mild cam, and be completely streetable.
