[Right lane]



11.94 @ 118.40 mph with a 1.78 60'!!!!! I'll be happy for the next month! I actually reached my goal of 11s on the stock auto, converter, and gears with no serious weight reduction or slicks/skinnies. I honestly didn't think it was going to happen.

And a few more to back it up:



Track: Rockingham Dragway

DA: -700 feet

Mods: PI motor, SVO blower with 3.3" pulley (8 psi), MHS stage II NPI blower cams, AIS methanol injection, K&N drop-in filter, 75 mm throttle body, offroad Prochamber, 2-chamber Flowmaster catback. Done on Nitto 555R drag radials at 28 psi, on a Bullitt suspension.

And most importantly, an awesome tune from Eric at Piedmont Custom Motorsports! This is the same tune that made '335' rwhp when he tuned it. Once again, the SVO blower strikes at the track where it actually matters! And got 26 mpg on the way home from the track last night! Hard to beat that.

Oh, and this was on the stock auto transmission (minus J-mod), stock converter, stock 3.27 rear gears, and very little weight reduction (spare tire, jack, and passenger seat).

Had a great time with you guys yesterday again. The track was a little green early in the day, but they got it REALLY sticky later on. I've NEVER cut a 1.7x 60', and only cut sub-1.85s on a couple of occasions, and I was knocking down 1.78s-1.80s on every pass later on. Lots of guys were running personal bests later in the day. Saw a tune/CAI/drag radial Boss 302 running 11.7s @ 123 mph! Very impressive car. Also had a good time running a heads/cam Trans Am later in the day; some really fun heads-up racing. Ready to go back again.

Next up: a set of 3.73 gears and see what this car will do once I can get it to come out of the hole a little stronger.

I didn't think it was gonna 11s either, my wife's car was a stock iron Pi motor, with 3.73 it ran 11.97 @ 113.xx range, but u were clearly making more power with the cams,

Congrats on your first foray into the 11's! :zbeer:

I remember how stoked I was when I broke into the 11's for the first time.

Well it just takes more power in a bird as he has about 300-400 pounds lighter

Yea, those cams really seem to be doing work. They're pretty similar to the 268h's that a lot of you guys run, but with a little less duration, a little more lift, and slightly more advanced ICL.

Regardless, it's picking up 24-25 on the back half (on the stock gears) and trapping 118, which tells me that it's making at LEAST 380 rwhp. I'd say that's pretty dang good for only a 3.3 pulley, stock heads, and stock bottom end. I'm ridiculously happy with it.

Haha, it was a guy in a 2012 Boss 302. Super nice guy. He had been trying to get his launch down all day, and was just really taking his time. His next pass, he ran an 11.70 at 124 mph, with only a tune and drag radials! Ridiculous!

And thanks for the 'grats! I was super stoked when I got that slip, and even more excited when my next 3 passes were all 11s as well.
