    You will probably get low 15s. High 14s on a good day. Get yourself a programmer to make firmer and higher shift point in your auto trans. Should help.

    On my auto 98 with only 4:10's and slicks I ran 14.90 @ 94mph. It was pretty hot that day. But it runs 12.80s at full weight all day now... :naughty:

    my 98 ran a 13.49 at 104 with almost the same setup before i put the 4.10s in it on DRs but with street tires it ran a 14.39 at 97 with the same setup havent been to the track since though to see what it runs now with the steeper gears and pi intake the only difference i had was i had pi cams in it

    Damn, my 88GT convertible with only 3:73 gears and a tremec 3550 went 14.6 in the quarter and it was totally stock with a toolbox in the trunk... I'm glad you're getting better results now.

    where do you live I had same setup and ran 14.5 all day with a manual in MN full pi swap I was running 13.5 at 101 man I need to move!
    so I guess what I am trying to say is location is a big deal !

    No way any of you were running 13s without any PI stuff, Full Bolt on nPIs are still just above 200rwhp, unless you have lots of suspension work i dont see full bolt on nPIs running any better than 14.2 and thats still a push. With exhuast, intake, and gears i ran a 14.9 at 91mph havnt run since the PI swap.

    wow, that's pretty bad man. Did you have old dry tires on there or was your reaction time really slow. I'm not trying to be condecending or anything, I just thought that 4.6's were a hell of a lot faster than 5.0's with mild mods. My best of 14.6 in my 88GT was really slow to me. I haven't run my current car at the track yet so I reall don't know what it's capable of. Just to go against Blk_96_Stang_GT....I have NPI stuff and I'm sure I'm well into the 13's. Ported NPI's flow just as well as the PI heads and keep my compression ratio down where I need it. Nevermind the PI intake, as my SC replaces it.

    i think its possible, i was trapping around 97 without any pi stuff, just exhaust midpipe and a k&n filter...

    I agree that it depends on where you live! I am in Denver and my track is at 6000 ft! My best time with NPI stuff and O/R H, Flow 40s, UDP, CAI was a 16.026 @86.68MPH! I will be going tomarrow to see if I dropped my ET and raised my MPH with the PI intake!

    Geography definitely matters, that 14.6 run was in Epping, New Hampshire where it was 90' ablove sea level on a warm summer night.

    That would definitely help. I'm not going to the track until I'm "done" building my car mechanically just so I don't get embarassed....or pissed off.
