    We get lots of these threads asking about hp and 1/4 mile times. You have to sell lottery tickets for estimates like that. We all guess a time, and then you go run and who ever has the closest time gets all the money in the pot.

    My guess is low 14's and high 12's to low 13's with 125 shot. Cut your timing back with the n02 to 10* with 93oct. That's where I have mine and think its a safe starting point. I'm similiar to your build except I have some mildly ported heads,intake,cam,etc. and a 5spd. I've ran a best of 13.6's and 12.3's with the juice. Your times will be depended on altitude,air quality,track prep,driver ability,tune,etc. good luck and post up when you get your times
