    I was just wondering which mods will send my times into the 12's? I want to stay N/A..... Currently I have:

    BBK Cold Air Intake
    BBK Longtube Headers
    American Thunder Exhast
    MSD System ( 6A, Blaster Coil, Wires ect)
    Underdrive Pullies
    Pro 5.0 Powertower (Shifter)
    Centerforce Clutch
    4.10 Rear Gears
    Eibach Springs
    Nitto 555's (285)

    I was thinking new TB, MAF, and a good H/C/I... But will I see those 12's that I want.... Thanks in Advance!

    With a good H/C/I setup nicely matched 12s should be in your future :)

    You think that is all it will take? Because all I hear around here is how a SC or some bigger engine is the must factor.... examples being stroker kit or doing what I hope to do later down the road (puttin in a stroked out 351)

    Id say with the right HCI setup, good tune, afpr, throttle body and MAF (bigger injectors as well and possibly pump) it will be possible also LCAs might help out launching.

    12s are def possible with the right setup. i kno of a few stangs with stock displacement and hitting low 12s. h/c/i with the heads and intake ported as well as a strong cam will get u there. def gonna need a large tb and its not all power its gettin it to the ground, dont forget suspension and bringing more strength to the body.

    Honestly,

    You might just need heads and intake for 12.99, cam will get you deeper in the 12's though. My goal is as follows: BBK SSI intake, E303 cam, and roller rocker's and then take that as deep as I can.

    I hit 14.8 on an airport runway here in Germany which is slick, best 60ft time was 2.25 due to a broke traclock and street tires. Times next time should be better, hit the dyno for a baseline run and hit 188 first pass, second pass they added fuel pressue due to me being 16.1 lean and I hit 232 at the wheels so now that my fuel pressure is dialed in I expect to hit very low 14's which are a corrected mid 13. So with some slicks, Intake, cam, and rockers I might get low 13's. Once I max that out I'm rolling in with some AFR's so 12's should be no problem and might go with a custom grind cam at that point too.


    I'm the type taht likes to max out each mod, sure you could throw H/C/I at it all at once, but what made you the most difference along the way? What is your weak point if/when you change your setup? That's why I take it one step at a time. :ass3:

    If you were able to add some aluminum heads and move some weight and tune a drag race friendly suspension. You could be pushing 12's............or just buy some of the laughing gas and do it easily
