    well just an aproximate guess would be that you would gain a second...so 13.8 but I think it would actually be faster than that cause your going from like 200rwhp to 300rwhp ...but maybe like 13.5

    well we dont know anything about your car, is it coupe or convertable, a manual or automatic, is it bone stock or does it have a bolt-on or two, most nitrous companies dont rate the hp shot to the tires, so if your car is bone stock with a manual it probably has 190-200 rwhp and with the nitrous you'll probably be around 275-280 rwhp and with a stock auto probably has 180 rwhp and with the 100 shot you'll probably be around 255- 260 rwhp and with a minor bolt-on or two it will make a slight difference in hp but not a real noticable thing, so with a manual; you could run somewhere between 13.8-13.9 and with an automatic you would probably run a 14.1-14.2 ( these are also with the stock gears and street tires), you have to keep in mind that more power = no traction, so stock tires will make everything worse, now if you had drag radials than with a manual or auto; you'll be somewhere in the 13's, manual low-mid 13's, auto probably a 13.7-13.8

    my 94 auto convertable ran consistent 14.8-14.9 when i first got it and the only thing i did to it was a cat-back and a tune-up, but i also had a new set of goodyears and it was on a great track ( norwalk, but now called summit racing equipment dragway ) and he didnt say what the year is so we dont know if it is a 5.0 or 4.6

    OK. I haven't ever raced this particular mustang. The previous owner said he ran a 14.8 once. Its a 1996 Gt Mustang 5 speed, 315 Nitto drag radials, 4.10 gears, CAI, bbk TB and intake plenum, underdrive pulleys, msd coil packs, msd spark plug wires, NGK spark plugs. And now 100 shot Nitrous Express, read up on that company and they rate there hp the the wheels.

    nitrous express over extimates there hp shots, zex is a nother company that over extimates too, with that gear and a 5-speed with the drag radial you'll probably looking at a 13.2, thats if you can drive, did that guy run the 14.8 with those tires and 4.10's or is that something that you put on, with just the drag radials and 4.10 the car should of been faster than a 14.8

    He only raced 1/4 once and said it was like a 14.8, but told me the best was i think a 8.6 1/8. w/ those mods - nitrous

    I would go run it at the track and find out. It's more productive than speculating.

    im pretty sure an 8.6 1/8 is equal to llike 13.5 1/4 so that sounds off ..since you would probably run an 8.6 1/8 with the nitrous

    my 13.5 was 8.5 in teh 1/8th just for reference...i agree though, just take it to the track yourself on motor and who knows you may be a better driver and could get a better et than you thought was possible?

    The sooner you run it at the strip teh sooner we will know, however, getting used to nitrous on a car at teh strip takes a few runs. Its a lot differant with 100 more hp at a flick of a switch.
