    that's what my 91GT did on average it was a very simple combo. Short block out of a 95GT / E303 cam / Edelbrock RPM heads / 1.6 ADJ rocker arms / Edelbrock RPM intake ( the original ) 70TB / [email protected]&L 76 mass air / MAC long tubes - h pipe - dynomax exhaust / 4:10 gears......and the normal other things, pulleys electric fan and so on. Full weight car with a Z box trans and running on 275 BFG drag radials. It was one you had to see to believe, looked BRAND NEW from the paint to the interior. I miss that car :( See the Trans am in the right corner, thats a buddys car, it had full exhaust / intake / gears / and a B&M shifter and the best he could ever do is stay at my door coming out of 1st, after that it was a 3 or 4 car pull all the way to the top of 4th :bunny3: :bunny3: It normally ran low 8's I think a 8.20 was his best :-\

    Here is a pic.....

    Man I'm telling you I got UN-GODLY lucky when I picked that beauty up. I got it from a dealer in Goldsboro NC, it had been traded in by a older man ( yes I looked him up from the dealers records and went to see him ) He had owned it since he bought it NEW in the winter of 91, never put a thing on it other than a K&N air filter, and he kept it in his garage. He took extreme care of it, and it showed. Ill have to find my other pics of it, I have some of the interior / under the hood / and more of the exterior too.

    Of course then I got the car, put a 3 inch cowl hood on it, a Saleen wing, clear Head lights, Welds.........and a complete diffrent motor, trans and on and on and on..... ;D ;D

    oh yea that first pic came off my polorid camera :nonono:

    they were the 15x3 1/2 rims and the tires were a 165 I think. The ride was fine you just cant take turns or corners at high speeds.

    u gave me ideas, ur car looks sweet with those drag lites, the only thing im concerned is drivability, and breaking a rim on a pot hole.oh and if i were to put pro stars/drag lites i would have to make my car faster than what mine is , cause with those wheels everybody is gonna think it has 1000 hp ;D ur car looks sweet though, i cant stop staring at it !!!!!!!!

    Im going to get up now and try to find some more pics of it, I ran those welds for about two years. Then about 6 months before I sold it I put CONVO PROS on it 8) they were tooooooo swwwweeeeeeetttt.

    You do have to be more aware of whats in front of you when you run skinnies on your car, the welds have a habit of getting knocked out of shape, compared to the stronger convo's. I ran them on my car because of the advantages they provide, less weight / less rolling resistance......... and the fact that my car did run mid 7's in the eighth mile on Drag radials ( that I had on the car at all times ) was good enough for me to feel OK about having them on all the time.
