IF you do the math a 3500lbs car will need 597.57hp to run a 10.50
521.15 to run a 10.99...everything else is set up and driver...

your time slip will need to look something like this...

60 Foot 1.46
330 Foot 4.22
660 Foot 6.63
660 MPH 102.59
1000 Foot 8.72
1/4 Mile ET 10.50
1/4 Mile MPH 126.19

The 1.46 60 foot is the killer. If your 60 foot is higher then 1.46 you need more hp on the top end to get the time... thats why you see Supras running say a [email protected] 135mph should run a 9.xx.

These numbers come from Max Race Software. It will guess my Mustang down to a tenth.....

Depending upon what mods you have done for weight reduction, 500whp will get you into the high 10 range. I did it with about 465whp and the removal of the pass seat, rear upper seat, light weight battery, etc. For high 9's, I'm not really sure. I do know the gap between a 10.50 and 9.90 is far greater than most people would expect.

lol im very new to drag racing.i street race on the highway but ive gotten away from that its to dangerous and i have a baby on the way.im going to try and get to the 800hp range and i should be satisfied there.but ive been tempted to do a gte swap and fully bpu it with NOS so i dont have to worry about having to get the car tuned and ect.ive been very undecided.

I would just go auto and don't worrie about the r154. It can and has and does do it but the auto handles the abuse better, more consistant and makes a little easier to drive it ( takes some of the driver mod out...) plus they can still be fun on the street. But just a opinion.....

i made a 10.1 @144 pass with around 700 hp. also I really don't have a lot of seat time a the track because i get kicked out for not having a cage. I would say you could do it with less and a better driver.

My car dyno'd mid 500's at full weight and went 10.50's 40's. Then i dropped in a TH350 and cracked 9's. This is all on a 100% bone stock 120k mile motor and rear end.

Now being a NA-T...did you swap a gte motor in? or whats done to the Na-T motor? we need some spec's and we can all guess more accurate. And a R154 is a bad idea it will most likely break on you. But most all the guys above are right you don't need even 700 to hit 10's. With " good driver mod " it's been done many times with 450-540whp.
