Well my best run was a 14.1 at 97 mph so not to bad with a stock gt!
haha and what is that path sir???? lol. Probably at tip of my tongue but can't remember. Unless you mean NOS haha.
Damn it I knew the answer to that, lol. Yah It's definitely possible with low horsepower figures. Suspension rocks! Bullitt's build on here is a bullitt (obvious haha) has about 266rwhp as I recall and some good suspension and weight reduction and also made into mid 12s.Just maximizing traction, like an NMRA Factory Stock car.
I'd wager that a full UPR Products suspension system, 28x10.5" slicks, and a 4.56 gear would put the car in the 11s without touching the engine... but that's getting pretty serious.
I'd say that if you can 60' in the 1.60s, you can make it into the 12s without touching the engine. My recipe there would still be a streetable UPR suspension setup, but less radical gear and less radical tire.
I went 12.91 @ 103 on a 1.69 60' with only 236rwhp. (in a Fox hatchback) But the PI engine is stronger than the stock 302 I was using. Making a solid ET with little horsepower is possible. It's allllll about the HOOK! :bigthumbsup
The UPR system is very radical, probably too much for a street driven car. Like you said a less radical set up would be better if it's street driven.
