ok so i took the car to the track 2 times this weeked and this is how it panned out.

april 30th this was also with up to 15mph gusts and DA was around 1800+
R/T----0.252
60'-----2.005
330----5.803
1/8-----8.925
mph----78.85
1000----11.624
1/4-----13.905
mph-----98.64



May 1st crosswinds made this day 1/8 only but DA was at -2 for this pass.. this was also the run againt my dad in his new 2011 5.0 and his best pass also with only a tune and et streets.
---------Me-------Dads 5.0
R/T-----0.464-------0.347
60'------1.993-------1.892
330-----5.681-------5.219
1/8-----8.755-------7.976
mph-----79.77-------89.42


Ok so hears the question how much would i benefit by getting a stall converter. after tht night it set my mind on getting one so i wanted to know what size would be best recommended and what brand people would recommend

Whats all thats done to the car?

Best bang for the buck would be 4.10's, 3800-4000 converter, shiftkit. And some sticky tires. NT555Rs imo would work perfect for your setup.

I disagree about the nittos. IMO get a mickey 275 radial. that is way better than any nitto tire and will hook alot harder. Hoosier also has a nice set of radials out.

agreed, a good converter will make all the diff. another +1 for MT drag radials, the NT555R's are hit or miss (they certainly don't work on my car).

before cams my best ET time was a 13.003 @ 104 with a 1.71 60ft in good weather, avg. 13.20's - 13.30's with an occasional 13.1.

I have yet to see a car run its best time with Nittos. They work well on the street but I wouldn't want them on the track.

A converter would definitely a wise investment. I would talk to to Darren at BC Automotive or Allan at Dirty Dog Performance about what is right but I am thinking 3800+. Also before buying a "shift kit" google j-mod. Its cheaper to do and more reliable. I may have both a j-modded valve body and a 3800 stall PI converter available in the next month or so.

What have you done to the suspension?

I wouldn't sweat the nittos on an auto car, I went 1.72 60's on mine with no issues.

3800 stall & a Trens-Go HD2 shift kit will work wonders for you.

your also gonna need a little susp. work.
