With your mods, unless the DA and track elevation are bad, you should hit a decent amount below 13.7! I'm expecting [email protected], again, depending on DA/elevation. Have fun, and turn traction control off(push the button once !!), and leave stability control on!! If stability control has to kick in from you sliding sideways, it may save your car, and the run is lost anyway... Don't go too much faster than [email protected] lol !!
His car is an automatic so he can't launch at 3,250-3,500 RPM's.

Good luck and be sure to post your timeslip in the 'stickied' 1/4 mile drag times thread at the top of this section.
