Running on nitrous to the 1/8th today

Post  4thHorseman on October 26th 2013, 9:03 pm

DA was 6400'.  Mile high dragstrip.  Was running 6.2's @ 114mph uncorrected.  I'm not exactly sure what that equates to at a normal altitude track but it's down into the high 5's someplace. I lit the red but it was just a test and tune. Trying to sort out nos jetting & timing.

Never met them. There are are few of us representing for Ford laying down decent numbers for street legal cars. Myself and a small block '67 Shelby clone that runs 8.90's uncorrected on a 400 hit of the hose (3 guns). He was helping me sort out my nitrous tune up. I learned my car will take a 175 hit right off the line and hold but a 225 runs the same ET to the 1/8 because it is spinning all the way thru first and kicks out the ass on the 1-2 shift. Might try putting my progressive back in. Might sell it all and do a ground up redo on the whole nos & ignition system. Not sure yet.

As a side note both my ride and my pal's '67 are in the midst of a photo shoot for Modified Mustangs magazine. Not sure yet what issue they'll be in. Kinda neat.
