    goin to the track next weekend and i was wondering what kinda times are typical for my car. I'll be running on worn out street tires. mods are just a PI intake, O/R H with flows, and CAI. what times should i expect to run in the quarter?

    with stock gears maybe HIGH 14s to low 15s or unless your one hell of a driver mid 14s...those 4.6 2v dont make near as much tq and with tires spinning since there bald street tires most likey 15 flat or around there...id idle it off the line and then WOT and try to cut a good 60'

    It's better to think you are going to go a bit slower than you actual will. Good luck...!

    the track is TOTALLY different and youll spin off the line no matter what with street tires..if you lauch from 3k at the track you will bog off the line and spin and get a terrible 60'...trust you will want to lauch from around 1k-1300k
