So I went to NYIRP again last night to try and see if I could best my 13.86 @101
This time I had added the Y pipe, and Pullies...

I couldnt get consistent passes.. there were like 130 cars last night and shit box GM cars kept oiling the track.. temps down into the 50s...

I could NOT get my 2.0 60' everything was wheel hop, bog, spin, couldnt hook up for shit..

anyway, I DID improve my MPH to 102.. but couldnt get anything lower than a 14.0 with a 2.2 short time.. so by my calcs, the car HAS 13.6 in it.. Just couldnt get it to manifest itself.

pretty pissed.. the car NEEDS a catback exhaust BAD

Too bad you can&#39;t rent the track and practice with some friends and an instructor or two. I&#39;m surprised that the car didn&#39;t perform better with those mods. Just deleting the cats would help improve the exhaust flow. The stock system is well made except for those pesky cats.

yea the stock system is made great.. except when you have a Y pipe with a 3" outlet slamming into a 2.5" catback... lol..
Once I get a catback the car should do much better.. I just need to work on the skills a little better.. my tires are hosed as well... so.. that didnt help either.

What you need is some drag radials. With 275/40-17 BFG&#39;s on 17" Cobra rims aired down to 20psi, I ran a 13.7 @ only 98mph.... no wheel hop.

Edit: Check the garage for my mods. Also, keep in mind, this is in Vegas with over a 5K foot DA.
