    were they exspensive?



    BTW: i was talking about your car today at work. i told them what mods you have etc and that i remembered somewhere you ran a 7.9 in the 8th. my buddies dont think my car is even good for a mid 8. and they thought you were BSing but i told em straight

    right at 80 bucks, I got mine from Holcombmotorsports


    im not going to get into battles about what my / or anyother car is capeable of running :-X we ALL know how that goes, Paul you KNOW what your car can do, and I know what mine can do ( and what my slip was last month ) and thats the bottom line PERIOD.

    Anyway a 7.90 isint that fast, its only a mid 12 in the quarter, what do they expect for a 4 valve corba with full bolt-ons, 430 gears and drag radials.

    remember thats extremley respectable from a N/A street/ daily

    the mechanic at my work is the one saying my car will only see mid 13's. (he drove it before the car took a shit) i told him right, but you drove it when it was only seeing 9lbs. (de tuned) and no traction. imagine traction plus full boost.

    your car ( before all the work your having done now ) was doing 280hp and almost 400tq at the WHEELS. That is MORE THAN ENOUGH power to run faster than a mid 13, .............good lord man a PI 2 valve GT STOCK with only around 230hp and 270tq at the tires can run mid to upper 13's and you have at least 50 more hp and 100 foot pounds more tq than that. Any jackass with a high school education can figure with the power advantage you have that your times will be quicker than a mid 13.......unless your towing a boat behind your car ;D ;D


    And for my Cobra, with the " fix " from the factory and the car making the 320 advertised HP they ran mid to low 13's STOCK and with my mods dropping a second off that is NOTHING MAJOR, its expected. I have full exhaust ( long tubes included ) 430 gears / pulleys / Jlt coldair / drag radials, and on my track run no spare tire, jack, pass seat, and gas on E. My times are on par with what EVERY other Cobra runs with the same mods :p Tell those guys to grow up and quit being haters on your and my Super Stangs ;)

    i think a FPR is a must on any FI car.

    also, most people like to hate, i can see ur car hitting mid 13s, KB, seriously with street tires and 400ft lbs of torque u might spin em the whole 1/4 mile.something like 2.8 60 ft ;D with traction i dont see how u cant pull a 1.8 60 ft and at the very least 12.99. i saw a mach 1 with 4.30 gears take off a while ago holy crap!!!!! :eek: what a launch ,so i can imagine snakes cobra. 4.30s FTW in a 4 valve :thumb:
