Nevermind... didn't realize you said N/A.


Suspension and tires. Period.

Yeah, LOL missed where you listed your "short through" haha

in that case, sticky tires and a set of rear control arms and drive it like you stole it. You have enough power for 12.99s with some practice.

Yup, plus treating your car like you hate it a lot

I'm wondering how to dip into the 12's with street tires. I'm sure it is possible with bolt ons. Maybe...
Street tires will give a 1.9 60ft as an absolute best which isn't enough to yield a 12 sec slip on bolt-on power.

You have a mid 13 second car right now. Once you get control arms, slicks/drs, and start practicing, you could be in the 12.9 range with the power you have.

N/A sure, with just bolt on's no. I ran a 8.49 on street tires which converts to a 13.3 with my 18's. They say just front runners knock around .15 off your 1/8th time. If I had lightweight 15's up front and rear I MIGHT be very close to a 12 on street tires but that's with good suspension and a cam.

Weight reduction, especially up front.

Remove the front sway bar when you're at the strip.

Sticky tires are a must (drag radials or slicks).

LCAs will help for sure.

Launch it like you want to break it (5500 rpms).

Be perfect on every shift point.

In other words, practice.

You probably still won't get the 12 but you might.

Other little things that helped me:

Adjustable front struts set to full soft setting.

Removed the A/C.

Moved the battery to the trunk.

Pulled the passenger seat (4 bolts - 5 minutes).

I did it with 265rwhp (STD correction).

I ran a 13.7 on DRs yesterday, bogged off the line with a 1.9 60'. That should give you an idea of what it can run. I think I could get 13.5 or 13.4 out of mine tops. I would say made a tenth or a little more added for your time.
Best I could get out of mine on street tires was 14.03 and only ran on DRs twice.
Best bet to break 12s would be built heads with a good cam... Or obviously a blower which is the route I'm going.

you dont have to remove the sway bar, just undo the end links from the control arms, makes it easier to put back together when you head/get home

you can get into the 12's with the right parts and driving the hell out of it. several of us go/went 12's on stock long blocks.
