    Went out in January with the new set up and ran some half decent numbers but I wasn't satisfied. I knew the combo desperately needed gears and some suspension tweaks. So I installed 3.90's to replace the factory 3.31's and made some suspension adjustments and it all seems to have paid off, still with room to improve. Complete mod list in sig.

    Hell yeah! Knew those changes would be beneficial for you. I really love NA cars, even though blown cars are fun. These newer 5.0s are just down right nasty. Where are you shifting it?

    I'm shifting at about 81-8200, shift light is set to 8k. I saw your reply in the other thread and you are correct, there is more left in the 60 foot, that's for sure. I made one more pass after this one but it got late and the track started to go away, still ran [email protected] Now I have some wildwood drag brakes going on up front, full tilt boogie rotors out back and some bumper supports.

    Guy I know has a similar setup with stupid light parts in the rear end and ported heads with the CJ manifold. It has been [email protected] He was hoping to get into the 30s with a better 60'
    These cars just get it done. Might have to get one to play with.

    That was my original intention as well but ran into an issue during install of the lightened/polished gears... the company I purchased the base gear set from shipped a set of F150 FRONT axle 8.8 gears to IW who I had do the machine work. Really put me in a bind so they shipped me another set of gears free of charge to get me ready for NMRA. Anyways, I'm setting up another rear with a spool and 9" ends so that will get a set of lightened/polished parts. Still tryin to decide what direction I want to go with the motor.
