OK guys,
I am gonna race my friends ls1 which dynoed 320rwhp and weighs about 3100 lbs. He ran a best of 12.6 at 112 our last time at the track. He did this on BFG's with a 1.9 60ft. What do I need to beat him? So far I am thinking of running him with an open dp, ffcd, mbc (or should I pull the hoses), street tires, race gas( dont know shit about it so if someone could tell me how much to use and mix with pump gas), pulled head light, and no trac fuse. I will throw in some NGK 1095's gapped at .032 before I go. Will me not having an intake make a big difference? I'll take the lid of the airbox and run with a pulled head light. Do u guys think this is enough to beat him? He is probably gonna put on flp long tube headers before we race, and that should give him 30-40 rwhp. Will I need to hook-up my NOS kit to beat him? Any info will help.
thanks
Yoshie
PS: My friend who I'am racing has a 6spd but he is one the best drivers I have met. I've seen him spank a lot of autos.

I also have a s-afc, would it be worth puttin it in before I race my friend? How unsafe is the ffcd? Hopefully my BCC will be in by sat. I have done the 12v fuel pump mod along with the egr mod.

Did u ever slap on your lontubes? How much would u pick up in terms of rwhp? How much would a ls1 pick up in terms of rwhp?

Yes, I threw the longtubes on at the same time since they old shorties had to basically come off anyways. I'd say I'll pick up a solid 15-20 rwhp since I have heads/cam. I'm assuming the guy w/ the ls1 has shorties on already so he could look to pick up a solid 10-15 rwhp over shorties.

He has whatever is stock. Are shorties stock? If he goes from stock to long tubes, how much rwhp will he gain?

If he only had stock manifolds look for the longtubes to get him 25rwhp or so. I would say a solid 4-5mph at the track.

4 to 5 mph!!!! Shit that mans that he'll be trapping about 116. I need to take my ass to the track and figure out what the best time I can get without spraying.

Get a DP and drag radials. Do FFCD and pull the hose. Remove the headlight & air lid if you'd like. If you know what you're doing and your car is running right you will run low 12's to high 11's at 118-121 mph.

hey redbpu, how did you do the fuel pump mod? did it make a difference? if you could let me know i'd appreciate it. thanks
I only did the fuel pump mod, because it was recommended with the free fuel cut mod to prevent detonation when #2 comes online. The mod was very simple, it's as easy as cutting two wires and joining them. Check it out at www.mkiv.com under tech articles. The mod willl take u 5 minutes. I didn't really feel a difference, because I did everything at once.

DEFINITELY PULL YOUR HEADLIGHT!! I don't know the actual HP gain but it is there!! If it was more practical I would do it all the time.

Get some 106 octane unleaded and drop the air pressure in your rear tires to about 25 psi! Don't be too upset if he shoots of the line, you can catch him!
