    no not unless you ran the 1/8th, roll through the lights on green, stop to wait 5 seconds, then make a hard pass that would have been mid 6's.....I saw that one time.:D

    Just look at my Tahoe it does almost 90 in a quater but only high 16's :( If you want a idea on speeds. As a rule of thumb 350hp would put a 3600 lb car through the quater in the 12's. 215 Hp would probly put a JR Dragster through the quater in the 11's maybe :D

    The 84-85' SVOs ( older 85) made 175hp and did 15.5 in the quater while the 85.5-86' SVOs made 210-215hp and did 15.10 in the quater. Now I may get flamed for this but I think a SVO would hook better than a 88' LX with a 2.3T in it. Even if its got a T-Loc rear end. So my opinion your car on a good day would just break into the 15's.

    Ya like alot of people I still have many touch ups. Such as black moulding to red, front smoked headlights, New RIMS!! (after I do the 5.0L brakes and rear end due to the future 5 lug setup), but I want to keep it looking like an LX, I really like the looks of them. Still needs some fine body work . As you can tell though I like flames, like many others :D

    Thats my baby :D . Her name is Jenna

    Thanks! I have allot to think about, and decide which direction I'm going in...

    I will probably start a thread soon (when I'm ready with some cash). I got a raise today...so the my limits are not so tight.

    again, thanks all!
    I'll sure I'll be bothering you all again when I get closer to starting my HP mods.
