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!
runnin 12.4's all day damn that is cheaper to do it than an Ls1 would be to get the same #'s. are u sure thats all it needed to hit 12.4
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!
