Default NA power?

just curious of how much power you all are putting down and which bolt ons you all are using to
get the most out of your N/A GTs.

track times and tranny options would also be nice.
pretty sure I will go FI in the future but want to go the NA route before doing so as well as
run some decent times in the process (low 12s or possibly a flat 12)

(4.10s + Torque Converter) on stock tires? you need DRs to get the full benefit of that converter, otherwise you'll end up smoking your tires!! torque braking to the maximum stall speed requires traction

My plan now is mid-low 12s NA with bolt-ons

3.55 Gears, Steeda Tri-Ax, Steeda Chromoly LCAs, 17" Aluminum wheels & 235 stock Pirelli tires 25psi rear - 40psi front, C&L Street CAI, 93 Octane Brenspeed tune, Steeda UDP, Full weight, Approx 1/4-1/2 tank of gas, Shifting 6500 RPMs = 13.0 & 107.75 mph.

Temps estimated in the 60s, can't remember. This is at Englishtown, New Jersey. Car has had about 100 passes, 23000 est miles.

LT Headers with highflow cats, 1pc Driveshaft, Drag Radials, UCA, Panhard Bar + Brace, and I think 12.0-12.5 is definately in its future.

Full bolt-ons NA is not worth the money u'll spend, been there done that, trust me.

Thief_of_Heartsu'll need DragRadials as Baha said, I have a [email protected],500 stall multidisc TC and 3.73's, with full bolt ons normal tires are useless from a dig and most of the times also when flooring the pedal from a roll. Got Nitto 555R 305/45 and traction problems were solved.

Now i'm just saving $$$ for a good SC'ed car.

no...VIRTUALLY all UDPs will yield the same/similar gains (within 1-2 hp)
