I recently bought an airzona clutch from dusty at mvp motorsports. I put about 500miles on it and took it to cecil county dragway and busted out (R/T=.501,60'=1.799,330=4.933,1/[email protected],
1000=9.756,1/[email protected])
The launch was incredibale it came out spining sideways though the 60'. My last time at the track I had a best of [email protected], that was on an RPS stage 3 that siezed up at the end of the night . Last nights second try I blew out the trany and twisted the rear drive shaft. The good news the clutch is still good and I beat my best time.

My Mods are as follows:
Steel Down Pipe
HKS Superdrager
HKS Foam Filter
HKS EVC EZ
HKS Type S FMIC
HKS Cam Gears -3,+1
Greddy Type S Blowoff Valve/mtd on IC Pipe
NGK 3330 gapped.03
110octane
Toyta Flywheel,Arizona disk,RPS stage 3 pressure plate
APEXI Super AFC 0'd out, havent dynoded it yet

I realy wanted to go out crusin this weekend but looks like I'll Be back up under the car again pulling the tanny. My poor car just got off jackstand last wendsday. Oh well speed comes at a price but this is getting expensive even at BPU.:peace:

damn man...thats a great 60' time to pull off spinning and going sideways. I wish we could pull off those kind of 60' times spinning. Nice numbers. Sucks that you screwed the tranny though. I guess those supra trannys arent bullet proof afterwards :D

To bad a tremec TKO dosent bolt on

Thanks, The tremec TKO cost as much as a tranny rebuild on the supra brand new. It would be nice becuase my brother has one sitting in the garrage. Happy Driving.:D

now that would be badass...a Tremec TKO in a Supra.. Right now im using the stock T5 with a Steeda TriAx shifter..but we are getting ready to either change it to a race ready C4 or a Turbo 400 GM tranny...what kind of money have you put into your car from going from low 13's stock to now going mid 11's..

Well from the mods
100 down pipe
640 HKS Super Drager
50 HKS Foam Filter
250 HKS EVC EZ
160 Greddy Type S Blowoff Valve
850 HKS Type S FMIC
200 Apexi AFC (Useless until car is dynoed)
260 HKS Cam Gears
---------
2510 For 11's

The worst thing is the clutch but in any car you need a strong one to hold up to the power 1341(factory flywheel,disk,stage 3 pressure plate).

My one freind has a turbo 93 cobra, he currently has the c4 and is going to the turbo 400 eventualy. It went low 11's on the dss331 short block with no power adder. It should be neat to see the time the car should run now. He is putting the tremec back in for real fun street driving.

yeah, were going to auto just for better consistancy at the track. And a manual daily driver gets tiring after a while. Most of the Mustang guys are going to the GM Turbo 400 lately. C4's just arent really that strong.

The best thing about the c4 is the rebuild price, around here there are a few guy that rebuild them for about 300-500 depending on how hard you drive.
Oh are your wheels made by american racing if so my freind with a 95gt had them on his car until he was rear ended, then he lost it in the rain about a week later and destroyed the front wheels. Power and water don't mix too well. Neither does alcohol and power.

yes those are American Racing 17's. They are nice, but are heavy and hard to keep clean. Soon im gonna be taking them off and putting some Weld Draglites on...

that sucks about his car. Yeah, power + water = a mess. This car handles like total shit on wet roads. Because of the rear wheels being so big and wide (BFG Comp T/A P315-35-ZR17's 12" Wide) they glide on top of the water so in the rain you gotta go like 30mph to not hydroplane.

Just curious...how do you launch your car and what tires do you run?

He runs...et streets.......26 x 11.5 and launches off rev limiter, slip,then full dump. And runs actual bpu no nos numbers :) But maybe if temp drops few more degrees.he will gain a good 4-5 mph and drop .4 tenths or so to match your numbers.....ya think? haha.......Once again congrats Brian.

So when you say off of the rev limiter does he just have it floored and the rev limiter is constantly being hit?

First of all I am not BPU, I am BPU++++ so ya think that might just explain part of it maybe?
Secondly, my question to your question is what was the temp, humidity at the time of his run and I would then be able to attempt to answer that question...I am sure my air conditions when I ran were almost perfect. I know that it was 56 degrees when I ran and I also am pretty sure that I have more mods than him so that might explain the more mph but thanks for asking.

I can't beleive that you don't think turbos run a lot better in colder temperatures especially 56 degrees...that was the first time that I have ever ran in that cold of a temperature...and with the car fully tuned and the exhaust system on.

If you really don't beleieve it just let me know when you are in the midwest area and we can race each other...but I can tell you the outcome now unless you get a VPC, tune your AFC and get ET Streets. The AFC itself made a huge difference on the dyno.

colder air is better for any engine and especially forced induction engines. The cooler the air, the more fuel it will suck and the more power it will make. If you run 11.30s in 70 degree weather, in 40 degree weather you could break 10's without making any changes.. A buddy of mine with a supercharged mustang with a 408 went 11.0 in like somewhere between 70-80 degree weather and showed me a time slip where he ran in 45 degree weather and went 10.70 without making any changes to the car.

Yeah, I wish that I ran that time in 70 degree weather but since I ran it in 56 degree weather I just don't have that much more room to work with. I really don't think that I could do any better the way the car sits now. I am thinking about getting a 2-step so I could build boost off of the line and that is about the only other thing that might make me run a little faster.

What does your car run in cold weather vs warm weather? How much boost do you run?
