And posted their #'*? If not I guess I'll have to be the first one on Wednesday. Thinking maybe 16.1-16.2 right now. The car is a little lighter as it doesn't have lumbar, moonroof, or CCR.

I don't recall what Seth'* numbers were but I'm thinking low 15'* with rockers?

If you don't beat 15.9 you'll never hear the end of it

I had a 15.5, but it feels quicker with the crosslace wheels. I think it launches a bit quicker without the chrome.

Hmm. I wonder if I might get a little closer to a 15.5 than a 16.x due to when you made your runs the temps were in the 90'* (?) and tomorrow night it'll be in the high 60'* or low 70'* at race time.
I am wondering if my torquestars might be a little lighter than your chromies due to not as much metal (i. e. your'* are fuller).

I also had my resonator removed today and had the tips put on that I originally wanted put on the SSEi. They look great. I took pics of them and I am posting them over in 'YOUR RIDE' next.

My guess is it will be hard to get similiar results in any weather without the rockers and pcm. Rockers add almost 30hp + the bit from the pcm. Thats almost .4 in the 1/4.

I hope to have the High Flow cat in place by the next track day (Sept. 29). Possibly also have a PCM if I can get a part time job (this would help for the money I spend on the woman and the car).
