Default 13'* possible N/A?

I have a freakin burning hole in my pocket cause ZZP is taking forever to come out with that supercharger.

I was wondering, is the 13'* possible N/A ?

Whos gone the furthest on this Forum without boost?

I think Im answering my question by saying this but what the hell, I saw someone in the Grandprix forum run an 12.9 with the Stroker kit and some other stuff I dont remember.

How much would something like that cost to install?? Its about 1500. About what I can afford.

So to rephrase my question, what path do you need to take too see 13'* without a supercharger/turbo.

i say 24 valve heads for starters. i know the 3.2 liter SHO engine will do 220 horsepower, bone stock. mild mods bring it in the SSEi'* territory. that would be my guess. good luck finding some of those though

13'* out of a N/A Bonneville is honestly not going to happen. . . .It would be way too much money, would not be good on the street and prob. not very practical. Go F/I - you'll never turn back.

I agree with that, for the most part. You would need some very deep pockets.
Maybe some stage 3 mods and upped compression could net you something close. You'll need to knock off 3 1/2 seconds to land a solid 13.

A stroker isnt going to do it for you.

The INTENSE N/A GT had a best of 13.2 with stage 2 heads and cam package, very lightened, built trans, converter, etc...

I suggest you save another 1500 and get a turbo.

It might be alot of money but that does not mean it'* not going to happen.

24 valve heads? Explain how we could do that please. We have PUSRODS. OHV, not OHC. And mild mods bring the SSEi into the 220hp territory? Every SSEi from 94-2003 has more than that stock!

Fordboy strikes again. OHC would be sweet. Maybe Randy needs to consider this as the first big mod to Frank

I know a supercharger byitself wont get me there. Not even close.

But How about a supercharger,Cam and headers? Low 14'* maybe?
