Default 1/4 Guesses?

Hey Guys,

My personal best time at the track N/A was 12.96 @ 168km/h
(Stripped interior, 28 x 11.5 QTP's, 32degrees celcius temp outside)
I forgot my sixty foot time but it was pretty bad at around ~2.0

I haven't done much to the car accept install a new K-member and A-arms.
Any idea how much these new bolt-ons will help?

Also, I'm planning on adding; FRPP Hot Rod Cams, FRPP Intake manifold and Steeda CMDP's.
What do you think i'll run with these extra bolt-ons?

I'll post some timeslips after i've gone to the track.

Unless those combined suspension mods cut 100 pounds of weight. I doubt it'll have a big effect on your 1/4 mile time. Maybe 12.8 this time out.

+1 ^^^

The old rule of thumb was every 100lbs reduction would drop a tenth off your et. I've never had good luck without this theory as I'm always trying to force that last tenth, not just let it happen lol.

Can't help with the second list of mods, but I'll throw an uneducated guess of 12.4s at 110 mph. Sorry, I mean 177km/h.

I think the 60' will improve for sure. That accompanied by the weight reduction, I'm think a 2 tenth gain at least. Assuming same weather.

If you can get some better launching techniques you could drop as much as .8 IMO. with those tires and the mods in your sig a 1.6x 60' should be pretty achievable. low 12's should be what you'd aim for after more practice.

That said, I wouldn't expect much increase when you do add hot rod cams and that intake. they dont add much hp at all. hot rod cams are mainly sound. IMO i'd just throw a set of decent comps in it which will make more power thru the entire rpm range than the hot rod cams AND frpp intake would combined. Save you some money too.

Just a quick update, after the installed K-member and A-arms, i ran a best of 12.82.
I'm okay with this, a bit more than 0.1 off of my previous best time.

I've ordered Comp 127200 nsr cams and a frpp intake manifold last week (along with a few small other mods, ATI Super Damper etc) , i'm hoping these will get me in the sub 12.5 range.

Blue, you nailed it.

Mellow, I take it your 60 didn't improve much.

@orangepeel, no it did not, atleast by a very small margin.
i remember before i had already seen 1.9xxx but only once.

this time around i was seeing 1.9's more consistently. no 1.8 yet though.
