    last time i took it to the track i ran 13.7 @103mph. Don't let those times fool u if u know what i mean. I was attempting 13.0-13.5 when one of the official came and drove me away with a trick question.....i didn't have helment... I was so ****ed. On street roads, u definitely dont want to mess with my car. I am not saying i am the fastest or what not, but it all depends on the driver

    Gary,

    I have a 98 C5 coupe and a 99 C5 conv. The 98 went in to the shop for ported heads/cam and headers. They did a leak down and it showed 18% on 2 cylinders. I have an extended warranty with Warranty Direct so we filed a claim to have them rebuild it. Well that was in September and I'm finally getting somewhere with them. I ordered a new 388ci motor from a shop in California that is rated at 550hp. It'll go in the convertible and that motor will go in the coupe and I'll sell the coupe.

    The coupe ran 12.37@108 with a 1.8 60ft time with 315/35/17 drag radials, Yank 3000 stall converter, cold air intake, ported MAF, X-pipe and catback. This was with a motor that had 18% leakdown. The new 388ci motor should do better ;-)

    hehe, lets go Aaron. I can beat any mazda and i dont even have the cobra charles does

    nice setup btw are you having any power issues, because i would be worried the power supply wouldnt be constant enough (i have a laptop in mine currently running off an inverter, but i would like to switch to DC-DC)

    Hehehe...Anytime. Actually, let's wait until the spring since by then I'll be under 10 PSI of boost...

    Hehehe...At first I was going to make some smart assed comment about slow V6 Mustangs, but then I actually thought about it...

    Since my engine does not have cylinders, you cannot lend me 2. So instead, you would need to lend me two rotors. That would make my engine a 4 rotor. Now, the Mazda 787B (4 rotor) produces about 700HP at 9K RPM...so I think it would be a little unfair for me to race a 700HP 2500 pound car against a slow-assed V6 Mustang.

    Hmm...I've put too much thought into this...

    hehehe....700HP, I wont even bother racing it. Is that even considered street legal??? Anything over 500+hp to me is really not a daily driven car.

    hehehe sure you will kill the poor little v6, trying it with a GT is a diff story none the less a Cobra.

    Cool

    The 787B is streetable due to the variable dynamic intake that allows it to get decent low end torque from a set or peripheral ports. However, I believe it gets about 5 MPG on race gas.

    Every once and a while I get a few races with a GT Mustang at the track, and seem to be rather even with them. Not sure what they are capable of when driven correctly or modified though...But we're sort of running off topic with this...

    Is the unit from tigerdirect the computer that has the math Co-processor then? Nice setup.


    Was you able to locate a remote switch to turn on the unit from the driver seat?

    Nice. I'm going to do this for my camaro SS this spring. http://www.angibabi.com/camaro/
