Default Cobra vs mrt's SS

Ended up meeting with mrtstang at a car show at msu, some pretty cool cars there, couple lambo's, a gtr, r34 skyline, lots of nissan's and subaru's. Anyways, we ended up leaving and decided it was the perfect time for some runs. Since our last meeting he added a ported throttle body and ram air, I added a single blade throttle body and that was it, so i figured it would be about the same as last time, and I was right. we got on the highway and did a couple 55/60 pulls. Traffic wouldn't allow us to go any lower. we got 2 clean runs, both the same outcome, me by maybe a car? Have to wait for mrt to chime in. Got a vid of one of the runs. first run the g/f didn't hit the right button, and the third one mrt missed a shift. so here's the vid from today. Next I gotta get my car on the rollers and get a real dyno tune, then we're gonna line up again and do some n/a and some nitrous runs

Well like I said, i'm really only planning on a 75 shot. Unless I dont make more than 550whp I'll stick with that jetting. so assuming you hit your car with a 100-125 we might have some fun races! I also gotta borrow the gopro from tc and keep the girlfriend at home so i can take advantage of my weight reduction

Yeah i'm thinking me on a 100 and you on a 75 will be very tight! I'm not sure if I told you, but I will be set to go with the sauce on May 14th. Sounds like you will be tuned by then too

Nice run!!

If greddy hits his with a 75 shot and leaves the gf at home then I think you will need at least 125 shot to be even with him.

You might be right on that! Although greddy and his girl combined probably only have 60-70 lbs on me though lol

I hear ya!! But even if she is just 100 pounds that is worth a tenth in the 1/4. Also the 75 shot should do really well on cooling the blower on the Cobra. They respond well to small shots.

75 shot through a blower is more like a 125. Should still be a damn close run with MRT on the juice though.

Ready for a rematch with that slow Cobra myself

That's what i'm afraid of...his 75 acting like a 100-125, and my 100 only acting like 100 lol. Regardless...i'll need to every bit of a 25 hp jump just to even it out.

Go ahead with at least a 125, your trans can take it unlike mine, lol. But yea, a 75 through that blower is going to be a hell of a lot more that just a 75 unfortunately for you.

Which nitrous set-up you looking at?

Yeah you're probably right about Greddy on the 75 lol! My ride came with a really nice NX wet kit installed and everything. I just had to buy a timing adjuster box, and a bottle heater. Technically she is ready to go, but I want to throw it on the dyno first and verify a/f and WOT timing before I just assume lol.

To be honest with you Stone i'm not real happy with the current tune in my ride now, so i'm just sticking with a 100 for now. When I get a better custom tune i'll go ahead and hit it with a 125-150.

Aren't you doing nitrous as well? If so is it set up yet?

The blue heads/cam T/A I raced a few months ago is also doing a 125/150 shot soon here. Lots of guys going the nitrous route around here lol. Some guys say my 75 will act more like a 100-125, some guys say it will just be a solid 75hp/150tq. Only time will tell I guess. Stone you can get your *** up here anytime so I can finally show you my sexy tail lights LOL.

Whats up with your tune? Who did it? Running rich or what?

IDK man, I'm definitely planning on something more. Just got too many projects and debating nitrous or stroking. I've been tweeking my stall lock up in search for higher traps and finally got up to 118.5 twice today at the track, so its a process, lol.

Nitrous is just such an easy way to go faster, much faster. From what I've seen nitrous through a blower is inflated. Only one way to find out, so hurry up and do it.

Your tail lights? I don't understand, are you saying you want a car length head start or something? :P

Stone, the a/f on my car is like 11.2 all the way to 5k where it leans out to about 12.2-12.5 until it hits the rev limiter at. That's way too rich from what I know. What do you think? I saw your thread over on LS1 tech btw...nice job on trapping 118! Shoot you might give me a good tun from a roll...who knows lol
