Default 12's in a 2v on a budget...vid up!

Hope this can be useful as many of our customers are always asking "what can I do makemy GT a 12 sec daily?"...well here's a quick list with some pricing and a vid to back it up. Let us know if you have similar set ups and feel free to post your pics/vids with mods list. thanks!

99 GT $6500
Cold Air intake $159
75mm Upper & TB $289
Upper/Lower control arms $209 (UPR)
Lakewood 90/10 or 70/30's $198/pr
Strange 10 way rear shocks $140/pr
4.10's $200
Off road H or X $159
Cat Back $300
Stage II Cams $625
Springs for Cams $229
SCT Tune with chip or XCal2 $379
Weld Rims/Tires $800 - used


All totaled it's a tip over $10k including the car. (If you can do the install or have some freinds with tools) Now sell some of the stuff coming off the car like the old wheels/tires and you can have more to work with. Not bad, but a 12 sec daily for 10k is not out of reach. Now if you already have the car, simply add the rest over time and you too can have some fun!

Here's what this one ran:




60-FT
1/8 ET/MPH
1/4 ET/MPH

1.671
7.900/86.96
12.411/107.76

1.662
7.914/86.74
12.426/107.99

1.659
7.885/86.49
12.420/108.58

Were the cam's new? What kind were they? How much would it cost to have them installed at a shop?



EDIT: Have you guys had it dyno'd, if so, you have any numbers or videos or anything?

Stop being such a burn-out queen and you can!

Is there any reason why 4.30's weren't used?

Is this the same car I saw featured in a magazine that had an Auto? Looks awful familiar and so does the mod list. Very nice

That's it as surprising as it seems. Most people overlook the cams and suspension, but that is what makes these 2v's fly. This one had 99k miles on the clock as was a true daily driver flogged every chance it got. We installed a new Spec Stage I clutch ($209) and a pair of Long Tubes ($335) and it ran 12.05 @ 113.6 at Baytown.

You can see the clutch starting to slip in the vid just before the launch. It was creeping pretty bad which forced me to be easy on the 1-2 shift, then it was "drive it like it's stolen" for the stripe! I could have netted a couple more tenths just driving straight, but this was my first trip down the track with this car and I was a bit rusty at the wheel.

Glad you guys enjoyed it. I had a blast!
