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.

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.

I was exactly the opposite. My neon would trap that high on street tires spinning thru 2 gears but would only trap 118 on slicks. Variables.

12.8 @ 110 tells me that the car needs sometires and a chassis that works.
Then let it eat..........

I used the chart that's on the 5.0 general discussion page to get this.
I guessed the wieght at 3800 (had to include driver)
To run that E.T. you need about 335 RWHP.......

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.

+1... 3500lbs with a fatass is a lot closer. Those cares were pretty light.

Yea, the 94-04 cars are usually around 3500 lbs with a driver.
