I ran my mustang

I took it to the 1/4mile track. I got there late, so i didnt get a time trial. I guess 14.65 and i ran a 14.54,so i broke out. I spun a bit off the line. Guys told me that was great for a first run and a convertable. Once we get the new computer ill get the timeslip up and pics.

Nice time slip, was it hot out when you ran it? Anyway, sounds like you got a runner.

Those are nice numbers for a stock car. Do some mods and you could be smokin' high 11's...lol

Yo Larry, you're gettin' funky with them colored text there, noticed it in a few other posts of yours too....

75-80 i think, not 100% sure

As far as mods, you guys wanna help me make a list, and just guess on the prices, and gains? That would be sweet.

Way to go, Rubberman!

Here's the list...................

Steeda timing adjuster: $169, 1-2 tenths
Steeda underdrive pulleys, $169, 1 tenth
3.73 gears: $199 + installation, 3-4 tenths
Pro 5.0 shifter: $189, 0 tenths, but damn are they nice

That's a good starting point. I'm gonna stop there, cuz I'm unsure of your budget, and how much you really wanna tear into it.

BTW, did you run that at Norwalk?
