SCT X-Cal 2
C&L racer intake
kooks longtube headers
o/r x pipe
slp loudmouth 1's
3.90 gears

how much hp do you guys think im pushing with this setup? What should my 1/4 times be around? i know yall wont be able to tell me for sure, but just a ballpark guess is good for me...... thanks for the help in advance......

Without the 75 shot you should be right around 345 rwhp. I would guess mid 12s in the 1/4 mile.

Just a guess, I would say around low to mid 12's with good traction.

The cheapest way to go would be to up your NOS!!

NOS would be the simpliest way to boost your 1/4 times. But with the longtubes and SLP's you could have the loudest mustang in your neighborhood

(slowly and very VERY quietly crawls through thread portal...takes a quick but careful look around from underneath camouflage for any signs of hostile forces...sees none...rechecks egress route for obstacles...carefully continues forward toward pre-determined vantage point...sights target...target seated and unmoving..range/windage to target determined...steadies self..breathes slowly and deeply...holds breath...slowly squeezes trigger...shot rings out)






splash guards






(watches target drop..no movement detected... after prescribed waiting period, begins slow, stealthy withdrawal along ingress route, carefully removing ingress and egress tracks...exits thread portal...says to self: "another one bites the dust"...celebrates w/ adult beverage - "hard cider"...readies self for yet another mission...)

+1 on the splash guards..........and up the shot!

You should also look at your suspension. I'm wondering if your hooking up at all with stock suspension?

11.5 @ 120mph it's my slow car!

An adjustable UCA would help you with changing the pinion angle for drag useage. The other thing to look at if you do much strip time would be anti-squat brackets: CHE makes a good set that are inexpensive too ($98):

You're welcome - I thought the suggestion would be better than more splash guards.
