    Went out for hte first time tonight since the swap from an AODE....1st and worst run was a [email protected] w/ 2.305 60'.....2nd gear didn't like to be shifted too quickly as it spun more than it ever would on the street....didn't spin 1st at all any of the runs i just bogged it but it got better each pass. third pass it went [email protected] w/ 2.205 60'....given cool weather/tires/practice it'll get better, it's been almost 3 1/2 years since i ran my old coupe so i'm rusty :( Just thought i'd share though, mods are catback/hpipe/14 degrees timing.....this is all and it's lowered. :nonono:

    Best times with AODE in sig. same mods of course.

    that's what i figure...the 89 coupe i had went [email protected] on street tires with same mods and 3.31 gears...on slicks it went [email protected] and temp was in the low 90's then my clutch said good bye to me. I get tires eventually though. :)

    not bad at all for a basically stock 5.0! my best yet is only a [email protected] mph on street tires and without the chip and tune. im hoping to get in the mid to low 14's with better tires and the tune at our next meet. plan to run my 96 octane race tune on a mix of 91/101 ;D

    Sweet man, good runs.

    Interesting to see the times since I'm swapping to a 5 speed right now!
