I decided to paint my calipers Red, and decided the car was fast, but nowhere near fast enough. I swapped to an 82mm pulley, ID1000 injectors, VMP Boost a Pump, lund tuning

I was able to talk Lund into letting me put a 79mm pulley with 93 pump gas due to clean logs. This caused some major traction issues, so I decided I needed bigger tires. Along with bigger tires came the need for rims. Went from 255's on the rear to 315 Nitto Invo's with Niche Misana graphite wheels to match the stripes:

October 17, 2015 made it to the track. Unfortunately didn't get a single pass off; snapped the half shaft on launch =/



Swapped in a set of DSS Half Shafts

November 7, 2015 went back to the track to redeem myself. First pass out spun bad in 1st, 2nd, and 3rd gears ran an amazing 14.77.

Second pass launch felt strong as I milked the clutch a bit, but my service engine soon light came on so I let off the gas somewhere before the 1/8 mile and coasted down the track to a [email protected]

I didn't have my ngauge with me, so crawled to a nearby advance auto parts got signal that I had a fuel injector problem. I checked the wire or so I thought and stupid me checked the SPARK PLUG wire which didn't have an issue and limped the car home. I was going to swap the fuel injector in cylinder 3 with that of cyl 2 to see if bad fuel injector, and the minute I touched the fuel injector realized the stupid electrical connector was somehow completely off. Plugged it in all problems solved.

Decided I needed more power so swapped to a 75mm pulley, and with lowered timing went to the dyno. The person running the dyno accidentally let off at 6500rpm(He didn't know I wanted him to pull to 7500 rpm) and put down 665rwhp.

I worked with Lund, and we built a pretty powerful feeling 75mm pulley tune with raised timing for 93 octane with Torco additive. I'm pretty sure it is over 700 to the wheels, but will dyno soon.

I also picked up some Mickey Thompson Drag Radials and mounted them to Race Star rims for my next trip to the track.

Currently on order is Pypes Long Tube Headers, as well as Viking Shocks.

I will be going back to the Dyno soon to get various pulls in to show everyone the horsepower progression among the pulls.

After that is done, I will install the headers get another dyno pull in with headers on and find time to get to the track with the Mickey Thompsons trying to find low 11's high 10's if I can learn how to drive properly.

Got my Mickey Thompson Drag Radials mounted and balanced on the rims today :)

Viking shocks should be here any day now, then hoping to make it out to the track this saturday rain permitting.

I want my car to look a little more aggressive; any suggestions on what spoiler I can go with that won't require drilling filling etc?

Also would it be tacky to get some decals made up with the different manufacturer names for the mods I have done and place them along the front fender by the door top to bottom?

Made it out to the track tonight. Ran a [email protected] with a 2.3 60 ft. Babied it out of the hole and shifted one to 2 a little early. Couldn't get a second run in because it started raining. Need more practice.

*edit*

Timeslip is as follows:

R/T 1.283
60' 2.384
330 5.927
1/8 8.495
MPH 101.08
1000 10.664
1/4 12.432
MPH 129.51

Going to Dyno this Sat. Putting new headers on Monday, then back to the track thursday to practice my launch.
