Hey, If you are going to E-town be sure to look up Gary Donavan and his 'Relentless" Plymouth Reliant -just don't let him talk you into hitting the track with him. YOU WILL GET BOOSTED!! He runs a 2.5L 4-cyl turbo with a 3-spd auto trans. One fast ride -low to mid 10'* last spring, so who know'* what he is running now. Also, don't go up against any Shelby Dodge cars that have anything done, because if they have a 'Gus Mahon' grainger valve turbo bleed they can make that $5 mod good from 10-50 hp put them solidly in the high 13'* and low 14'* very solidly. Other Shelby Dodge'* to watch out for that go there are the stock Daytona Iroc R/T'* and Spriit R/T'*. These can run in the high 13'* bone stock. 224 hp and 265 lb ft of torque in a 2900-3000 lb cars.
I know E-town is a very popular place (I am a member of the Shelby-Dodge-Mailing-List www.sdml.org also) for them to hang out especially in the spring when everyone is out to test their mods and tuning the did over the winter.

Good luck and be sure to let us know how you do.
Stylez

Well I know that GTO meant "Grand Touring Option" so maybe GTP means "Grand Touring Package"...??

My bet is you better that time by one second and 5 mph.
Good luck.
Your wheel and tire combination yields the same overall tire diameter as the stock 235'* with the 17" rims. I'm surprised that the ride is smoother because the sidewall is shorter now.....must be the brand of rubber.
