what's you're quickest time again ??

Or what is the calc to determine from 1/8th to 1/4 E.T. ?

Do you guys run 1/8 or 1/4? Here is one of my slips that shows a pretty decent 1/8 mile time:

Can't recall if it was 8.5 or 8.6. Either way here's the conversion chart.

yeah, my times from qualcomm sucked. I think my best time was either 9.08 or 9.10. I also recall that I spun pretty hard 1st-2nd no matter what. Granted I didn't lower my tire pressure but I recognized right away that trying this on stock or street tires was pretty futile.

Will be picking up the ride in about 2-3 hours!


I searched around ModFords today and found all there is to know about the BAP install. That's one thing we're missing here in TMS (BAP How-To)... but will have one soon!
I may try and install it before the Knotts show. It should only take around 1 - 1 1/2 hours to do. Only time consuming part will be running the boost switch wire from the trunk to the firewall.


Just talked to Jed, he's streaking across the AZ desert and should be back in SoCal later tonight. You guys remind him of the carne asada & Heinekin party this Saturday!

Awesome. Nothing less than a full detailed report is expected.. Gotta give it to ModFords, tons of great info there. People that are more hard-core than I have the brass to be with my car payment.

I do hope you get-r-done before Knotts, that'd be waaay cool. Jed & Streaking, I don't think I want to know any more.. HAHAHAHA. I'm Out Saturday. I might shoot...er streak down there to show-off, but It's my day to detail and I have to help goodie bag stuffing(and get a Cordelia Knott Chicken Dinner). Between picking up the car, Knotts and detail, I might not get the chance to head out there, but I will try.

Yeah. Me = basket case by the time Thursday rolls around. The 5 hours I'll be at work on Friday are gonna be the worst 5 hours I've known. It's the same way it was when I went to go pick up my car

Its all happening with the stock fuel pump in the tank and no Boost-A-Pump either, only 39lbs injectors which come in the Vortech kit. The package consists of a 12.5 psi Vortech S-trim and an Alcohol kit as well. This is all happening with 91-93 Octane in the tank.

Like I said, I'll put the BAP on, I just find it interesting that larger pumps or BAP's aren't always required on FI engines.
470 RWHP is right about where I'm at... and all I did was change injectors.

Did you see my pic that I copied from the install instructions for my turbo?



525 at the crank is about 450 RWHP, and it says "more than adequate", which explains why I can hit 475 RWHP safely.

It is all interesting, and I'm still not sure why BAPs are needed sometimes (if they really are needed at all).

Oh no. This is the last thing I wanted to see I don't like the tow truck I'm looking at. Please keep us up-to-date Bill.

I don't see oil or obvious damage and it looks like it's residential area that it's being loaded/unloaded. Potentially a good sign.

We know that the BAP wasn't hooked up yet, perhaps after getting the AF gauge running he saw something he didn't like and didn't want to chance it driving it home? BTW... look closely the gauges look like they're installed and on the A-Pillar....

From the "Official Police Towing"
The owner or driver of a disabled vehicle requests or specifies a specific garage or tow service.
I'm trying to think of all the ways that it isn't a bad thing.

Talked to Bill via text; this is no prank

No details though. That's for Bill to share with us.

Good google Leo. I was curious to know what is done.
