Talking going to the track tonight...

ok so i am taking the Cobra to the track for the first time tonight. i am running 275/40R17 Nexen N3000 rears at 30psi may drop it more. wore out stock suspension, so you know its soft. lol any one wanna take guess on what its going to run and see who is closest? i am not sure what to expect out of it, as long as it will out run the 98 GT i had a 15.3 (spinning through 4th).

R/T- .349
60'- 2.388
330'- 6.358
1/8- 9.633
MPH- 75.75
1000'- 12.434
1/4- 14.811
MPH- 95.17

car hooked pretty good launch at about 3k and ride the clutch out and chirp in second. i was kinda disappointing i thought maybe mid to low 14's but oh well. so he is the question, i have $200 so do what ever i want with my car what should the next thing be to help get better a ET? i have pullies, full exhaust, and 3.73 gears. any suggestions?

I kinda figure a Nitto tire would help. I have seen stock foxbodys go quicker than that in the 1/8th with nothing more than pulleys.
