Supercharged 06 GT ETs. ????

I have an 06 GT, Saleen SC, 410s, manual. Tuned to 420 RWHP, specs are to fit American Iron road racing. I want to make a few passes for the heck of it . I'm expecting mid to low 12s. Is this realistic? I think mid 12s should be doable, low 12s would make me a lot happier.

Low 12's...yes but it is really dependant upon how well the tires hook-up

I should have said, I'm running 285 Nitto 555s but have a set of 01s.
I'm really just making a wild guess, low 12s would be really good in my opinion, with it set up like it is.

Traction will be key and so will your shifts...some DRs would be very helpful especially with those 4.10s...

Is it a real Saleen? or just Saleen powered?, there is a big difference.

There is documentation of an 06 S281 S/C running High 11's with a professional driver.

If yours is an 06 GT powered by Saleen you should be in the Mid to High 12's

I would run the NT01s, get them hot, and sliiiiiip the clutch off the line (from around 4000rpms). If you can 60-foot in the 1.80s, it'll run low 12s.

Mine is a GT with a Saleen SC on it. I searched, in 06 Saleen models had an increase in BHP to 330 for what I assume is tha NA model. Supercharged, they came with 435 BHP. They had 373 gears in them. I can't see where they would be a second faster than my car. I should have a power advantage, putting 420 to the ground. As opposed to 435 BHP. My car is also geared a little lower which, should also give me a performance edge. Am I missing something here?
Thanks for the responses, I'm planning on a trip to a local track in the next month or so.

Saleen also puts UD pulleys. a larger TB, air intake, racecraft suspension and a tune.

I don't think you would be a full second slower, maybe 3 to 5 tenths, and that just depends on how your driving style is and how well you can shift. With a good RT and a 60 ft time I bet you can consistently hit 12.5

I'm running the same stuff, other than the suspension. My car has a road racing suspension, built by Agent 47. Driving ability aside, horsepower is horsepower, right? It should come down to horsepower to weight? My car has had the full lightening treatment. Rear seat delete, no sound deadening everything not needed is gone. It does have a full cage in it but, the extra weight should be offset by the stiffening of the chassis. I'm sure the Saleen is probably a more comfortable, quiter ride. At the probable cost of weight.
As far as the driving, I'm talking about the cars. You were saying the Saleen is a faster car. I am talking with the same driver in both cars.
The Saleen has 435 BHP. I don't know how much parasitic loss that there would be at the wheels but, I bet it's more than 15 HP.
I'm sure the Saleen is a nicer, more polished and comfortable car.

I wasn't aware you had all the goodies, just thought you had the S/C.You should be the same if not faster, especially with the NT01s.

The Saleen is a nice car, I love mine. However with the Racecraft suspension and 20 inch wheels, it rides a little rough on some roads and like a tank on others. I do love how it just sticks to the road. Your car sounds very similar, it's a nice car and I like your colors.

Good luck at the track.

I went through your gallery. Very nice car. You are right, good suspension and smooth ride are two different things. No free lunch, huh? I'm just curious. Like I said, I'll give it a go and report back with some numbers. Thanks for the response

How does your car ride on the highway with the 4.10's? Are the rpm's too high in top gear, say around 80 mph?

I'll predict 12.4-12.6 @ 113'ish. Good luck and keep us posted!

70ish I'm running around 2500 if I remember right. I don't see any problem at all with that. It's getting better than 20 mpg there too. Surprises me
