Default Getting VS Cam Installed...What to expect?

I'm getting a VS cam installed this Fri. Just curious what 1/4 mile times I can expect with this setup? I know with a GTP I could get mid-upper 13s with a good launch. What can I expect for the Bonnie? Just curious.

Other mods will be: 3.4 MPS, FWI, DHP, PEMs, TR6ix plugs, 180 t-stat.

probably mid-low 14'*. you should've looked into roller rockers as well.

with teh added weight and terrible weight distribution, an SSEi will generally run 0.5sec slower than a GTP with the same mods.

With that cam couldn't you run a smaller pulley than a 3.4?

Thanks for the feedback everyone. I'm hoping to get down to a 3.2 pulley after I get it all tuned with the 3.4 first.
