Well went to the track saturday to see what the cougar had. Well the old motor has 195262 miles on it at the time of the race. I have put in a new tranny that is slightly upgraded, a rear shock tower brace, and a strut tower brace. The only other upgrade would be a tune up with better coil and plug wires. Was able to make three passes during time trials first was a 12.13, next was 12.36, then a 12.09. I did my dial in at 12.07 and broke out with a 11.93. This was an 1/8th mile track. However I was not the slowest entry of the day. There was a dodge diesel 6-speed crew cab that ran 12.65. Reckon I got long way to improve lol. Anyhow it didnt go home on a trailer and still took girlfriend to work on Monday. Dont laugh too much I plan on continuing to work on the car. Thanks for listening.
