I say let's just stick to booze. BE tends to get a bit expensive.

Leaning towards M&H's right now. Went reading at modfords and s197 forums and it looks to be the clear cut favorite. Looking at the 275/50/17's with a set of bullit takeoffs. Now it's just a matter of finding the best price.

For now no line locks.

Yes and No. Only reason I'm getting the drag radials is because I miss the track and can't see myself ever going back unless I get these. So I won't be the fastest car but atleast I'll finally see what this things got when it hooks. Plus I really want a 12 second time slip.

BTW-I'll be taking the car to Barona (real drag strip) not the ricer track at qualcomm. Although I might go back to take vengenance on all those imports that did me in the last couple times I went.

Edlebrock! Should be fun!!

Hey, if anyone is broke azz here, it's me. I was just kidding about the BE with Leo. Although after the smoke clears, I'm in!

Thanks.

Not sure.

Glad you liked it.

Good news-Just ordered a set of 275/50/17's from M&H.

Bad news-On backorder for 3 weeks and it's $420 shipped.

I don't think it will be that long. It's just one of those things where they tell you it will be longer than it really will so your not calling and bothering them every other day. Either way no biggie as there's track days several times a month all year long here in SoCal.

My car probably won't look as cool considering I'll only be running slick in the rear and I'll have 18" polished bullits up front and 17" silver bullets on the back. As long as it hooks though I don't care.

--------------

I wonder if I should take my rear spacers out when heading to the track? I also plan on buying a set of mud flaps so I don't cover the rear fenders with rubber.

That looks cool?

Looks like big ol' baloon tires.
Maybe sick for the track, but silly on the street, IMO.

Anything will work, you guys are the beer experts. 3 or 4 six packs will be sufficient. Thanks, I'll call you guys.

Well finally some good news. Spark plug was removed successfully. He's testing pressure overnight to make sure the leak the car had is fixed. Car was dyno tuned today. Tomorrow go in guages and rechecking everything. Saturday pick-up. I'm curious to see what he's achieved powerwise.

He also said he has a GT500 fuel pump that came in with another kit of his and wont need it. He said he might be able to cut me a real good deal on it since he'll have no use for it. So I may also come ahead with a nice fuel pump sometime in the future. We'll see how that goes.
