it was an elim.race so we were dialed in, i was having alot of KR and dialed in at a 15.90, he was dialed in at 15.50. he had a 350 in it too. i hit the brakes at 1000' because i was like 5-6 car lengths ahead of him and still broke out bad. here is the time slip.
once my KR is taken care of, it will defintly be in the 14'*. i just had a 9.54 1/8 th @72.95 mph and my egr valve blew open at 900' that really sucked. it launches like a mule.

so far , my best was the 15.30 when the egr blew open. still working out the knock retard too. i think i figured some of it out. my tensioner pulley is growling, and at high rpm * it rattles. im replacing it this week and going to the track sat.
my goal is to get into the low to mid 14'* without nitrous.
ill be there very very soon

Although I am not very familiar with the pre-97 SC 3800'*, I would think it would be fairly easy to go that fast without nitrous. Can't you do basically the same mods that are available for them now? Now it only takes a couple hundred $ to do that, was it a bigger deal in the pre-97'*? From seeing the timeslip when you were on the brakes, you should've easily been faster than 15.3, the same for when the EGR blew open. You know you can get a block-off plate for it right? I would think that would prevent it from happening in the future. You can also remove it altogether and get the code removed from the computer or just deal with the SES light. It would probably be a good idea so this little mishap doesn't happen again.

How much difference did the 1.9 rockers make

You mentioned it is still getting 5 KR. Was it more before the rockers.
Mine has the same mods except stock rockers.
Have you track tested it yet ?....or is Mom saying to use the GTP for racing instead.
