No 132 mph lol. 6 psi it'll prob do 115 because you have a set of heads. Could be other issues for hitting 15's. It can happen on a 6lb spring if ther things aren't right.

I doubt he is going to stick to 6lbs.


only combo I seen that i knew the hole set up was trapping 128 with just GT40 heads/intake and bolt ons. heads where ported pretty good. I'm pretty sure he was only showing 10lb's of boooooooost too. It was the on3 kit, no tuning, guy was just playing with fuel pressure and watching his wide band.... haven't heard from him in about a year, so I assumed he blew the motor from not tuning it properly.

I tried to do the completely untuned thing, my car broke up so bad at wot, o.p. is doing the right thing though. And army I beleive you. Tons of fast explorer parts car. Dude at the local 8th mile yesterday in a lx hatch, c4, eddy intake, pheads, bcam did 7.00 but managed 106 mph. Thats enough for mid 130 mph. Well into the 10's too. He launched from idle. Had an mpt70.

Why are C4s only good for drag? You do realize people drove forever, all over the street, and country with them, right?
I don't agree that they're only for drag. But if it's going to see a lot of miles in the good weather, I prefer something with overdrive myself, so I can partially see the point. If I didn't put so many miles on my fox in the summer, I would do a c4 in a heartbeat, mainly cause they're ****in cheap for the power they can handle compared to anything with an OD, especially when you get into needing more than a synchro'd TKO-600.

I know what you mean. I just think it's funny to hear all the young people talk like a 1:1 final drive isn't streetable. Mine is a 1:1 final drive, and I drive it everywhere. I figure an auto is inevitable in my car, and I've been looking at AODs, but they're so damn expensive, and the converters are really expensive. An AOD, with a tbrake from PA is about $3300 without a converter, and a good converter for one can be 2 grand. Screw that!

Always a trade off... We need the technology for a 9 sec car that drives fine on the street and get's 30MPG... that doesn't cost 100k

Nope. Still haven't got there yet. Been busy. But it was slow before, and didn't have overdrive.

I'm still saying an 11.50 is all it's going to do, so it will still be slow. Then comes the hose!
