Damn Driller, you really do use every chance you can get to show off that set-up.

I had mine custom built.



:D


.........................................Wow................. I like that. So im guessing it isn't true that you could burn a valve with a straight exhaust? And it has to be loud.

I like it though. I may have to seal your idea, make a slight change, and say its all new!!!! J/k It does give me ideas though. How much did that cost?

And I know Im way off topic.

Dumping the exhaust.

Years ago maybe but today an exhaust can be set up with little to no restriction. In fact it looks like there is a pretty good system on there without the cut-outs.

no, i meant the 6" straight pieces, kinda useless....the angled downtubes, yes


i know there's a point in dumping, lol, as i too am running cutouts....great for making lots of noise, lol, didn't make it any faster, guess i didn't put enough restrictions in my exhaust, lol

The proper question would be how heavy is the car. LOL

Race weight is generally 4050 pounds depending upon fuel level.

But in full disclosure, the 13.4 was with a negative density altitude. I generally run 13.6-13.8 depending upon the track and weather.

The remainder of the exhaust is basically wide open. I'm running Hooker's mufflers that are open straight through. The only restriction would be reversion at the cutout Y pipes when the cutouts are closed.

One of my dreams is to rig a WOT switch and timer to hold the cutouts closed for a time yet to be determined before opening the cutouts at higher rpms. I believe it would be possible to utilize more torque at the launch then less restriction to HP once the cutouts open at the higher rpms. :rolleyes:

...I went 12.98 @ 103 with 254rwhp and at 3700lbs.
I believe it's entirely possible to do, but I'm curious what what the RWTQ numbers were.
