What have you done to it to pull a 12.80?Old thread. I've been away from the forum a while. Not sure why. I drive my 84 weekly. It's got 140k on it. Not stock but still hot air. I hit the drag strip maybe 5 times a year.
This August I won our local turbo event called turbo thunder. We we're bracket racing so I wasn't the fastest but I was super consistent and did accidentally pull a 12.80 on a 13 dial in. Luckily the other guy red lit.
This winter I'll tune it to run sup 12.5 and see how it likes that.
The list is long regarding what's been done to the car. But to get below 13 I increased boost and added fuel until I needed something else to add more boost and fuel. So I ended up with alky, 60lb injectors, ta33 turbo, and all the stuff to monitor parameters while I hit the boost.What have you done to it to pull a 12.80?
Jerry - I heard you might be the best Houston hot air expert. Do I have the right guy? I'm in Houston, and am having a problem with my '84 T.
