Default Estimated Gains/ETs

So im waiting on my performabuilt with 3600 stall to come in as well as my ORY and my prothane mounts? How much will this wake up the car?

Any estimated HP and ET's from my signature??

Thanks..



Josh.

I forgot to ask you but do you have tires ??? If not you WILL need them lol. But I would guess somewhere in the 12.8 range maybe. What does your car run now ???

Havent had it on the track. Watched a local guy destroy his driveshaft in his TA and got cold feet because I didnt feel like walking home 40 miles.
Stock Rims on Eagles(stock tire basically) until I break down and buy the 12 bolt.

Cant afford to destroy it

Any tips to get that 60' time down?

honestly you probably wont be happy with yout 60' time on a street tire. Probably somewhere around a 2.1 i would guess. I dont think your car is making enough power to break a rearend (I know anything CAN happen.) I would just buy a pair of drag radials if you want to break into the 12's. My car has 124k miles and 3.73's in the rear. With a 3200 stall / 100 shot / mickey thompsons my car would cut a 1.7 60' time.
