Nice times OP. Keep working at it and your tune and youll get a little deeper in the 11's. Have you had the car weighed since you did the weight removal to see what your at?

No. I'd like to know. I put in a 10 roll cage years ago when I was planning to run nitrous and to stiffen the chassis, so it's likely not a lightweight even with all the stuff I removed. I'm guessing 3200 to 3500 range.

Nice times. You have more patience than me. I hit my goal of 12.4 with bolt ons and then started throwing more power at it. I still have a 2.73 gear and completely stock suspension. Seeing your results kinda makes me wish I would have tried to go faster with bolt ons.

Very nice times! You have to be patient with getting deeper into the elevens but it is achievable. Worked on your shift points, tire pressures, weight reduction, good weather and flash the convertor till the brakes can't hold! Once you get your sixty foot down in the low 1.6's or high 1.5's, sweet spot on the convertor launch....then wait till you get the best weather conditions.

I personally like to shift at 6000 in first and then a little higher in second and third! Run tire pressure at 14. Flash stall as high as possible. Check my sig for mods and for my best track run on an auto.

Thanks. I'm leaving off idle and letting the converter flash so I'd like to try your way at some point. Also, I had my pressure at 20 pounds but lost some et when I reduced to 18 pounds. 60' times were about the same so could have been the air just got that much worse. Definately looking forward to trying again with good air in the fall. Once I do the rear end in, I'd love to see how some 4.10 gears would help over my 3.23s also.

Good job getting in the 11s with bolt ons! My best bolt ons and convertor time at empire was a 12.28 @112 in October weather couple years ago. Got any videos of your runs?

Fast intake and X pipe and take it closer to 6400. Worked for me anyway.

Been a while because it always seemed to rain when I was free to go to the track but got back out to ESTA today and ran a new best. Ran 11.8451 @ 113.60 with a 1.6350 60 foot and 7.5150 @ 91.89 at eighth. Still haven't changed much since I last ran other than a few more pounds trimmed off the car and a few changes to the tune up. Also ran a 11.87 and a 11.93. Spun on other runs but was pretty good day other than my HP Tuner scans didn't save so I can't see how my tune changes were working other than the time slips. Maybe time for some new front shocks and springs - 11.60s here I come.

nice! any idea on how your tune is setup, such as timing and are you shifting at 6400 now or where currently?

timing is set at 27 degrees. Shift points are set at 6250 first to second and 6100 second to third. I tried setting second to third to 6250 but it hit limiter and wouldn't shift so I put back to 6100. I'll try and adjust and bring back to 6250 or maybe higher.

Spring update: After a long winter and numerous rain outs, local track finally opened a few weeks ago and I got to make several runs. Track was probably a bit green from lack of racing plus a couple burnouts I kinda messed up on and I was spinning almost every run. Did sneak in an 11.87 at 113.9 (my best speed to date) with a 1.67 60'. Did notice some things on my HP Tuner scan that I need to work on. Despite having shift points set at 6250, the car was shifting right around 6000 both gear changes. Also, it was dumping timing down to 23 degrees in third gear - must have been getting some KR. I figure if I can work on those, I'll be in the 11.7xs. Hopefully , there'll be a test and tune in the next few weeks so I can find out. Also ordered a kirkey seat and drag front shocks and springs to dump a few more pounds and help with weight transfer.
