    Hehehehe

    It'll go 14's with some traction (NEW track surface + NO VHT = LOTS of wheelspin!), the MPH is already there. The MPH-to-HP calculator says 303HP at the flywheel for the weight.

    Only mods from stock (stock being a genuine P71 VIN code Interecptor) is the K&N FIPK GenII CAI, the 2.5" cat-back (under-axle) with Flowmaster 40's, and the Superchips out-of-the-box tune.

    I still need to flush the coolant, install a 180* T-stat, change the plugs, flush the trans, change the gear oil, put on a new serpentine belt, and get ready to do the brakes (the road race laps showed some weakness there! ).

    There's drag racing again in 2 weeks, so I'm going to get all the fluid swaps done and try again (hopefully with some traction). 14's would be nice in a 4150Lb boat!

    Very nice Mike,

    The guy you were racing sure came on strong to get over 100mph with a 14.849, must have been one of those high reving ricers.

    The other car was 12-second GTO with major traction problems (35-series Z-rated road-race tires and a new track and a new driver).

    This GTO actually:



    I got to drive it too (13.8@103 with a 2.2 60', the tires were NOT suited for drag racing!). He's buying a set of DR's and trying again in 2 weeks.
