    OK Heres what i got Done.

    1995 Stock Internal GT
    Kenne Bell 1.5L Supercharger at 11PSI
    CAI (Fenderwell)
    Autolite 24 Plugs
    Ford Racing Plug Wires
    Short Throw
    Mac Exhaust and tips (Stock H back)
    3.73's
    245/45/17s (BFG G/Force)

    I Was Dynoed and Tuned w/ a bad Belt and Tensioner, 87 Degrees out making only 9LBS of boost 297HP and 374TQ.

    NOW i replaced the belt and tensioner, im looking at 10.5 PSI. (SHould be 15+HP)

    One of my friends joe has a hopped up GTP running well here are some of his times:

    R/T -- .575
    60ft -- 1.98
    330ft -- 5.56
    1/8 -- 8.60
    MPH -- 81.02


    R/T -- .506
    60ft -- 2.00
    330ft -- 5.59
    1/8 -- 8.62
    MPH -- 82.93

    1.89 60'
    8.57 1/8 mile
    79.63 Mph
    13.36 1/4 mile
    100.87 mph


    So My question is Do you think i can beat him? What do you think im running in the 1/4 and 1/8? SHould i go get some M/T DR's? how will i improve. I just dont want to waste the gas really, and i want to know what im up against.

    I think you can definitely hand him his ass. I would bet you are in the mid-high 12's in the 1/4. Of course it all depends on driver skill, so practice your launches. Make sure you lower your rear tire pressure to about 18 psi when you race. The only way to find out is to just do it!

    What kind of mods does he have done to that GTP? I've personally never thought those were all that fast.... :dunno:

    i love the internet. haha.

    We are racing for bragging rights to 2nd in our car club. if i had slicks i could prob dump the clutch around 3K and leave him, but i can normally not get traction thru 2nd with these tires!

    Hmmmm, his site says 233hp/314ftlb at the wheels. That's more than I would have guessed. I still think if you practice launching and drive it good, you can beat him. From the looks of his site, he has some track experience. And he has definitely sank some cash into his Grand Prickx. :lol: This will probably be a drivers race. Let us know how you do.

    His car is ugly imo. Tell him to go race a SHO, thats in his style league and class.

    I think that if you hook up, you will be good for a sub-13.000 run. I think you might pull off a mid 12 if you have good weather and driving technique (shifting at the power peak, not losing traction in 2nd, etc.) Maybe less than 8.000 in the 1/8th. I'm just guessing.

    I wouldn't buy DRs unless you plan on using them. That money could be put into other more permanent mods (heads, headers, x-pipe).

    yah man if u get traction, good traction you can take him id say, even some wide BFG KD's hook up well and there even OK in the rain. also if u dont have them LCAs would help.

    When I was running, N/A, I made 276 rwhp and I ran 13.0's all day long at 107. So your making 300 rwhp..with a set of tires you should be right there. I suggest Nitto drag radials, they are a great track tire, just heat the crap out of them, they are fine in the rain and last about 12K if you don't beat the crap out of them. I am suprised you are making that much boost with a 1.5 KB?? That's amazing. You need to do your heads to appreciate the car and find a ton mor epopwer. Good luck on your race.

    Depending on your rear....4500rpm. If you have a stock rear and tranny, start out at 3K.

    I misssed your question...HEADS & TUNE!!! Screw the wheels...make the power!

    I agree with the heads and tune over the appearance items. I have a conservative tune and I am only pushing just over 7lb of boost through my combo (see signature).

    I still think that you can take him the way your car sits today. Practice those launches on a lonely stretch of road. Vary the rpm until you find a spot where you can take off with minimal tire spin. The track will be stickier at the starting line than any road you practice on.

    I run Edelbrock heads, and I know a lot of people who do so also. They make great power, and you could easily find a used pair at a great price.

    If he's saying on his website that he's putting down 233/314 and your putting down pretty much 297/374

    I don't know why you guys are saying this should be a drivers race... :dunno:

    IMO With your higher numbers and his track experience you should still take him by a car at least.

    Plus his car is heavy, you will have a weight advantage as well.

    If I'm wrong here guys please correct me.
