Any Series 2 with similar mods to mine will take me. This includes all the cars listed

I'll be losing to 2KSB and Pdad in July at the Woodburn Dragstrip. I'm certian of that with regards to both cars. Both of their cars are heavier than mine, but totally different animals under the hood. Not only is my car 'older' technology, but it'* also 11 years old.

Top speed is another issue altogether (or at least being stupid enough to do it)

I agree that Silver and I would be close, he'* PCM'ed and I'm not yet, Gonna get you Silver!

Track times don't really matter to me, just enjoy the power out on the road, it is nice to go to the track occasionally and see what I run.

Too bad my great sounding stereo weighs me down = slower times
oh wait I have a great sounding stereo

What do you mean the longest rev range??? He can physically rev the highest due to his PCM, or he makes the power higher in the rpms??? Any rocker'ed car is going to make power up high...and I mean WAY up high...as long as their PCM lets them get there. They usually peak at about 5200 and stay right at their peak power until ~6200 or so. When my moms SSEi hits the limiter at 5800 it is still pulling just as hard as it does anywhere else...although having an otherwise stock valvetrain its probably good that it doesn't rev past that.

I would bet that our SSEi vs. Bills SSEi would be a close race. Just gotta get a decent mini-afc on it and richen it up a little bit and it should be right at 14.2 or so, which IIRC is right around where his car is at. And obviously the 4 listed above have significantly more mods, so they are gonna obviously take him.

Speaking of a rocker'ed stock cam L67 flat power curve...notice how flat the horsepower and torque are. I know it doesn't have RPMs, but the end of it should be like 6200ish and where the hp & tq. cross is 5,252rpms...so you can basically figure it out that way.

Do you think you boys could beat a 5.4L V8 F150 Harley with an M90 SC?

I'm thinking that the car that the dyno sheet above belongs to wouldn't have any problem beating it.
