Scan that ticket and I'll believe you. I ran a 13.9 locally at a Utah elevation. I had a '91 Mustang 5.0, True ram air, pulleys, A/C eliminator,
full exhaust, B and M shift kit, and 3:73 rear end, on BF's.. And no one could really touch me with the exception of a few Camaros, firebirds, Turbo
civic with a b18 pushing 16 and motor work. and a disgusting 240sx.
I'm on to stickier things with my Subaru..
Last street legal dude that ran a 9.9 was a dude in a turbo charged Civic hatch.. 540 horsepower, totally stripped..
I'll believe it when I see it..
lol Last street legal was a civic. Jeez, you do realize for a civic to push that much hp on boost or NA race gas is require due to detonation no
longer making it a street car? Well I will find the ticket and take a photo for you.
But on the questions of what I run and so forth I have a long detailed account of what it took to get into the 9s for those interested.
Started off with a 2002 WS6. Ran 13.6 stock, enjoyed it, but wanted to go a lil faster nothing too crazy. Long tubes, true duals. 13.3 with drag
radials, some improvement but more noise than anything real.
Fuddle 3800 Stall 2.5 STR although it flashed 3.0STR on the dyno not sure what was going on there. 15.6 on street tires. 12.8 the fallowing week with
radials. Hazaa I was in the 12s. Car is running good owning up on the street from light to light, no real street racing I enjoy my driving privileges.
So onward and upward to lower ETs. btw these numbers are best as I can remember the only slip I kept from the begining days of the car is the 15.6
cause no one believed it.
So my friend suggests I cam the car, gotta sound meaner cam will do it. So I call up Texas Speed after hearing several sound clips and reading
reviews I want the TSP MS3 237/242 .603"/.609 with a 113 LSA those are the cam specs for anyone interested in duplicating the recipe. I wont go into
the finite details as it gets long and boring but pushrods and springs had to go in along with a host of other parts that I was not thinking about. In
short cam install ran 1400$, so spending that much I decided ported LS6 heads were a must since I was going all out... Or so I thought. HP
improvement over bolt ons was from 336rwhp to 411rwhp, then turns out my tune was bad car was running too rich, retuned to 378rwhp not the magic
number i was hoping for.
Car runs mid 12s still spinning like crazy. Not too happy. QA1 drag shocks, LCAs, and drag springs are added along with subframe connectors. Car rides
like ass on the street but performance with an 11.6. Go for another round hopping for something lower and boom goes the 10bolt. Thought it would go
sooner but nope, lasted fairly long. A season goes by and the car sits due to work restraints and just being somewhat dissatisfied with the blowing
all of my money. BTW read the rules and regs of your local drag strip cause brokenness no with standing I wouldve gotten kicked off for running 11s
without the proper safety equipment.
GF leaves me do to finding a much wealthier male and I decide I have free money again and in goes a moser 12 with 4.10s. Also a set of slicks and
skinnies because now its more than a street car. Although still runs on pump gas and still gets close to 20mpg highway. The wonders of the LS series.
Being cheap I decided to look for power the easy way. I gut the hell out of the car. Leather out the door, plop in two racing seats which are not
comfortable at all, bumper supports gone, basically anything that wasnt needed to drive the car was gone.
Get a 10.86 out of her after that then plop goes the trans. Of course at this point in time the car is legal for the strip. Cage, safety loop etc. So
plop goes the trans at 10s... Call up FLP and review my options. TH400 will be the strongest but wont have OD which...
