    When do you think the car will be back up and running? What mods are you putting on it?

    i'm putting a 98 gt motor in with the pi swap. i'm also eventually putting 4.10 in the rear with a rear end rebuild kit and timing adjuster. i already have longtubes, catted h and catback. i also have underdrive pulleys, cold air intake and superchips 1725 programmer.

    Should go with a 99+ motor ;)

    I wouldn't mind running you at HRP since our mods are pretty close (I also have the 4r70w). Once you get the PI swap however, you'll walk all over me :)

    no.... use the pi swapped 98. higher compression = more power than 99+.

    also there is no sure way to convert. if you run 9.5@82 using time is useless. MPH has as much to do with it as time. you can't say that 9.5@82 = 14.85. the mhp should be 72-74 for 9.5.

    also 82mph ideally is going to be 13.10 @ 101.
