The mod thing I may have done a little more but im not telling. Thats the point. HAHA. Ok as for the saleens there has not been one here THAT I HAVE SEEN. Nor has anyone I talked too. As for a cobra SVT. I ran with the one that would go with me. If you want me to go to the strip and get a slip I gladly will and take pics of my car to prove what I am saying. Im not tryinng to make you all go against my opinion but it is that. MY OPINION. From what I have seen on the internet a Saleen is one of the fastest cars on the road. I have seen 3 C5s and one C6 in South Carolina. Im sorry to say but theres nothing here. Its ALL HONDAS, ACURAS, INTEGRAS with the fat mufflers, wild paintjobs, large spoilers, and hard ass attitudes. Thats all I have to go against and its no competition. So theres my points. I will go to the strip a.s.a.p. and post my times. As for my pics im still working on it. Yes if anyone wants to race I will gladly go. I know I will loose to a C6. I have never gone against one just seen a glimpse of one. I have seen alot at the car dealerships though. Very nice. I wish I could own one but I love my car just the same.

You quoted an 8.9 for your 1/8 time. That should put you in about the mid 13's. I would say about a 13.6. Pretty quick for your year. You should be even with most 01 or earlier svt cobras and Lt1 corvettes. You should beat some Ls1's (but don't count on it) and rape Lt1 camaros and transams and mustang GTs. this is all based on your oponents being stock.

what you probably won't beat
most ls1 ybody or fbody
03 or 04 cobras
ls2 corvettes or gtos

*DISCLAIMER* It's always run what you brung, so you never know what you're up against. (and neither do they)

saleens are OK, depending on whats done to them.. they are generally just a 2v mustang gt with a eaton super charger on them. I was pretty even with them in the 01 cobra.. they are easy to mod (new pully and tune) and handle nicely for a mustang.

now, the saleen s351 that the sold in the late 90's... that was bad! 351 windsor, supercharged. 500 rwhp and pulled 1.09 (i think) on the skid pad!

saleen cobras are awesome... very rare!

and of course, ther is the SR.. that is just pure race car.

Troy if you will give me directions I will gladly go. I thought about putting mach pullys on it. I want the extra "10 horsepower" but it slows the alternator and L-98 is bad for eating up alternators. I am trying to squeeze out a little more out of my car without going "into the engine too far". No chargers, NOS, cam, or anything thats gunna change it to where its too hardcore. It's my daily driver but it's all so my race car. All the cheapo mods that the magazines claim work. I havent felt the seat of the pants but it's noticable. My next project is lowering the rearend. Its gunna be a ***** to do but I will have to do it sooner or later. Looks stupid with just the front done.. BTW our track sucks pretty bad. Trashy people, horriable track, and its only an eighth so I cant open the car up just barley getting started but its got alot of low end torque. I think like 330 stock. Well anyway thanks for the info.

I wanted to bring my car. 2 hrs down the road we are sitting on the side of the road. We fixed the car..blown fan motor and now its overheating again 300 degrees. it cool down and go ten miles to the next exit. WOO HOO. There is a ACDELCO shop right there and a motel. Closed till in the morning. Walk over there ateight. Tax man notice. That jack*** is selling the property. OMG THANK GOD. A mechanic comes to the door. That was a faulty notic. I was like omg hallaloya. Now its in the shop and were two hours from the beach. We are leaving it there. . When we get back on saturday the car is being sold and im getting a new one. 90s. Lucky me. SIKE. That car is cursed. Somethigng all the damn time. <<<is me and dad.
