1/8- fast
1/4 fast
that is my estimate. with nos my estimate changes to faster.
seriously you will be in 11's or even 10's.

What size motor? also what all is done to the motor and what accessories are on it. That would help me narrow it down.

Also, are those real HP and TQ numbers from the dyno, or a computer program?

badknuckles 03-26-2004 09:06 PM

if that is a computer dyno i wouldnt trust it.
i have seen a computer dyno miss by over 100 hp.

Chevy 355 cid
Im running holly 750, victor jr intake, canfield 200cc aluminum cylinder heads w/ upgraded roller springs, custom grind roller cam 238/244 duration - .580/.585 lift, Im running no mufflers , just headers , to straight pipe. I have a turbo 350 w/ harden sprag gears , 12 bolt rear end w/ mosier axles, 4:11 gears, Frame ties, Traction bars, and BFgoodrich drag radials.... I got these crank power ratings from desktop dyno , which i hear is extreamly accurate! Like i said im running my 69 camaro which weighs around 3100 lbs... Alright with all that said, Lay it on my boyz

badknuckles 03-26-2004 09:24 PM

sounds like a good setup. i dont trust cpu dyno's all that much.

showtime69 03-26-2004 09:26 PM

Any guesses on the times?

badknuckles 03-26-2004 09:27 PM

say those hp figures are close. you should be running mid 10's-mid 11's

showtime69 03-26-2004 11:29 PM

any one else ??? I really wanna know what im going to be running this year.. I figured mid 11's with a 150 shot.

killerformula 03-27-2004 01:50 AM

Your estimates are about 50-60 hp high I think. You'll be in the 12's.


showtime69 03-27-2004 10:57 AM

Did u say 12's?? I really hope u mean 12's all motor?? I should deff be in the 11's with a 150shot. My car only weighs 3100lbs!

killerformula 03-27-2004 10:58 AM

yup, that's what I meant.

Only one way to know, the clocks don't lie

singletoncamaro69 03-27-2004 08:43 PM

I'd check that wieght again my 69 is very similar setup ( weight wise) and it is at 3480 but I still say 11"s with NOS for sure!:thumbup:

My motor only made 87% of what DD2000 claimed it would.

All times are GMT -6. The time now is 08:34 PM.
