Your car is running exactly how my 89 went with a stock 6.0 Lq4 with Trex, but I 60 foot .1 faster with a manual.

Beautiful car!

My setup is also almost identical to yours, and almost the same times too. My 60 was better but you got more mph.

Car looks clean! Ever though about putting some 243s or something on it to bump compression? I'm sure the 9.4:1 CR doesn't help at all.

It's actually the lq9 10.25 compression , I have considered doing some 243 heads on there , just not sure if it would be worth the cost including gaskets and bolts and such , unless I did some ported stage 2 heads from Texas speed , but then compare the price of those heads to a nitrous kit and I will get much more results for half the price .....

Very nice! I would leave it alone motor wise and just do a small 125-150 shot for fun grudge runs. Car looks perfect.

No actually after that run I was happy and had to drive the car home so I didn t want to push my luck for day , so i figure in the spring I will play with the timing and few. Other things and see what happens ..
