Breaking into the 12's?

Unfortunately, I wasn't able to complete the mods on my car before our local drag strip closed for the season. That leaves me all winter to mod the car before I go in the spring. I'm pretty excited because it will be my first time at a track.

My mods are in the sig. Any chance these will get me into the 12's? I wasn't able to find many numbers for an automatic GT.

If not, than what other mods should I need to get me there? Apart from going to a higher shot of nitrous. I like my current tune and would rather not pull anymore timing.

I don't see a problem getting there either.

You're gonna need Drag Radials though to get there.

Here is a huge timeslip data base, maybe you can find a comparison car there: Drag Racing 1/4 Mile times 0-60 Dyno Fast Cars Muscle Cars -

If you can't get into the 12s with N2O, something is wrong. Lots of N/A cars do it all the time.

BTW, if I were you, the next mod I would do would be a torque converter.
