3127lbs with me in it last time I was weighed with full interior. Eventually I'm gonna throw some aluminum heads and an aluminum driveshaft on and delete all my heater equipment to try and drop that down some though. I'd like the car to be sub-3000 with a full interior and me in it.
Yeah good point..that is a lot of weight.
I need to get on a scale...I think I have to be in 339x range now.
I unbolted the passenger seat the other day just to see how heavy it was. It was maybe 20lbs tops. Then I moved to the rear and unbolted the folding back, it was twice as light at 10 lbs or so. The rear seat bottoms are literally 1-2 lbs each. Point being, I don't see where you and I can really ditch much weight without destroying the interior. The front sway is a good one at 18-20lbs, along with the spare, aluminum DS in place of the steel one, washer fluid, 1/4 tank of gas, other than that, idk
You fox body guys have a huge advantage in that department....along with a cheap aftermarket....and an engine that loves any mod you throw at it.
I didn't post the RWHP in the OP because I wanted people to give me a RWHP that they thought 110mph would make. I didn't want people coming in saying he wasn't making 380, I wanted a number people thought he was making.
That's what I was thinking. I thought 380 would put him in the high teen trap. I guess it's safe to say he's probably putting down closer to 340 then he is 380.
Theres a million variables that come into play....
my car trapped 121 mph on slicks, but on street tires spinning I was getting anywhere from 114-117 mph.
my buddies vortech 04 gt only trapped 108 mph and it dynoed at 360 rwhp.
Vortech PI 4.6, built 4r70w with 3800 stall, 385 rwhp
11.35 @ 121 1.65 60
My car traps 109 (best of 109.95) with a decent DA, close to sea level. The one and only time I put it on a dyno resulted in 296 rwhp and 332 rwtq. Shortly before the dyno session it ran the time in my sig. Full weight Fbody with a stock converter and 2.73 gears. Headers, airbox lid, cutout.
1987 Buick Grand National, stockish. Still a GM troll.
2002 Camaro Z28, 2002-2013, another victim of drunk driving. RIP Mulletmobile.
I guess I need a new screen name. Six Appeal? Black Air? I dunno.
urmm.... uhh.. ehh.. 3800lbs? you are basing that off of the 2011+ 5.0s? It would still take a fat *** to reach that weight...
anyway... this is a 4.6L 2v he is talking about... and 12.8@110mph isn't too shabby considering stock gearing, suspension and nt05 tires. This isn't really a discussion on what mods he should do next to maximize ET.
