If anyone can give me a rough guess as to my 1/4 mile times that would be great.
Its an 88 5.0, edelbrock performer rpm efi intake, 65 mm BBK throttle body, cold air intake, MSD ignition, stock cam, heads and pistons, 50 shot of NOS 4.10 axle, t5 with short throw shifter, lowering springs. Tires are bfg sport comp2 255/50/16
That's a low 12-second car if you could get it to hook. With the tires you have and the driver mod, it miiiiiight dip into the 12.90s.

For reference, I ran 12.91 @ 103.7 in my stock '89 5.0 on UPR suspension and drag radials. (1.69 60-foot time)
