Any ET Guesses? That Time of Year Again...

#1
Headed to the track this month. Time to see what the new mods can do...

Last Fall, car ran 11.8's @ 114-115 with a 60-foot in the 1.63-1.64 range. E-brake launch at 10# or higher. Key mods were TA49, CASV4, Alky, 23'ish pounds of boost, 3" Downpipe, dump and all the usual small bolt-on mods. My signature has full mod list.

Additions this year include: Work billet 6262 turbo, 60# injectors, RJC 315-XTF front mount, built transmission with Husek 3021 TC and misc. supporting mods. I'll look to creep up on 25# of boost with the alky, maybe more if the O2s and KR look good.

Questions:

1. Any possibility I can see a 10.9x out of this?? Heads are still stock. Or should I be aiming for 11.2-11.3?? Car weighs approx. 3,800 with me in it.

2. With 93 octane and alky, could I add some race gas at the track for added safety or does that screw things up?

3. I have a 27" tall drag radial and a 28" tall drag radial. Any suggestion on which to use? I'm thinking the shorter one.

Thanks for the input fellas!

1-I think 11.5 is pretty doable.
2-Not sure I don't have alky and haven't used race gas for years but I believe a splash won't hurt.
3-I ran 11.25@118 with 27" 255/60 ET Street R's and I think a 28" will help
And I have a question...I pull 1.65 60ft leaving at no boost around 2800rpm and you as well as others leave on boost and pull similiar 60ft times/anyone know why that is?

That's a great question you have. Maybe if you left on boost, you'd run a 10.9.

All things equal and having traction, leaving on boost should produce a better 60 and et I would think.

Like to hear what others think.

Last time at track I tried 4# but spun, prep wasn't all that great. I'm on 93 pump and 2 cans of VP Octanium octane booster. A 10.9 would be awesome!
