Better time than I had before. I still feel like 4th gear is not pulling as hard as the other gears. I shift into 4th going about 80-85 and only able to get to 100 barely.

2 things, i see your in a vert, HEAVY! and even though i would think since you have cams you should have more power than that you mph isnt horrible for a stock header mild bolt on car. when i ran i had full bolt ons, but no vert, and trapped in a full weight car(1/4 tank of gas) around 101-102 with factory wheels, with my 18s i was lucky to get 99-100, also lost .4 tenths on my time they just zapped the power, not sure what you have for rims. Also when i had stock gears and 225rwhp mustang dyno, and stock rims i ran 13.3-13.5 but as soon as i put the gears in i lost .2 about because it was hard to drive out of the hole, drs fixes that. So long story short, if you have wider than factory youll lose power and et and if you have gears without decent tires youll lose et, add that to the vert and you lose et. So that most likly explains the lower mph considering the cams. But if you can edge that down to a 2.0 60 foot and you power shift like i do thats a 13.5ish et based off of those numbers.

Well I am running 18x9 all the way around with 245-35-18 tires. I even had the spare and jack in the trunk lol. I wish I didn't get rid of my stock wheels. I have a 96 gt also, I wonder if those wheels will fit on my 03? Ill have to try it out for track days. My rims are heavy as hell though. Starting to regret getting them. Also what else would I need to be full bolt on? Just headers and midpipe?

I can't get long tube headers in Cali and shorties wouldn't be worth it. I have a bassani x pipe but waiting until after smog in July to install and get a new tune.

i think full bolt on is almost more of an opinion. i really only consider it cai, tb, plenum, udp, cat back, tune. and my tune was a caned tune not a dyno tune. I dont really consider gears or headers a bolt on. I did race without the spare, i have AAA so all that crap came out anyway. Really you have most of what i had. biggest things at the NA level for bolt ons anyway i think is weight and launch. ours cars just dont have the power to make it up down track. i had 18x10 with 295s in the back and 18x9 with 275s in front, so i had a little more weight. But i couldnt get a 2.0 out of them at least not with toyo t1rs first time i switched back to the 245s on the 17s i ran 2.0 out of the hole. The 2 biggest differences for my overall time where 2.0s and power shifting. i picked up .2 from power shifting. I onlt had to shift 2 times though, so without drs i think that the gears are probably hurting you. Imo

Does someone not keep track of everything in the first post like years past?
Anyway here is my first slip of 2013 I did not make it out in 2012 so I was a little rusty and car is totally different than last time I went down the 1/4.
Anyway if it matters this is a N/A 4V I'm in the Left Lane
