    i think the 8.0 to 8.2 in the 1/8 is probably more like 12.7 to 12.9 in the 1/4. i always use 1.57 as a conversion between 1/8 and 1/4. it usually turns out pretty darn close. :D

    also, every time i see a thread on here about what people can run with a stock motor, there always seems to be an argument about what stock is. why is that? i guess everyones view is a little different, but schlodes clearly stated he wanted to see times from a stock motor with some minor bolt ons.

    personally, i've hit almost 104mph with my car, but i do have a street heat intake, no power steering, smog pump, or AC, so i don't count, i guess. although, the valve covers have never been off the car. i remember when i put the intake on i gained ~1.5 to 2mph and cut ~2 tenths off my 1/4.

    8.08 @ 84 is about a 12.6-12.7 @ 104-105 (judging from my 8.02 @ 85).

    As far as this post goes. ERnotch's car with untouched motor, MAF, Exhaust, gears tires, suspension, and pulleys went 12.77 @ 105! Mine never had the original stock motor for anything under low 14s (I added the intake)!

    In my 92 GT I ran 14.7@96, only mod was a BBK H-Pipe. 90% of the reason I ran this slow was because I couldn't launch for **** due to traction problems. My 60 ft was at best a 2.3. Now I have only driven standerd for about 3 months at the time so that was probably an issue but traction ****ed me. It was very cold outside at the time but the wind was goin the wrong way and pretty fast.

    to get low power cars to go fast you have to get off the line hard. high 1.6's to low 1.7 60ft's will be needed.

    Your gonna hear guys telling you high 13's,youll have other guys telling high 12's with "just" these mods. Its all BS!!! Stock 5.0's from 87-93 were as follows, 5spd = mid 14's and AOD's = high 14's low 15's!! THATS IT!! There were a select few that hit high 13's.But people of this nature usually had last names like Cosby.

    I had my car out to the track last month for the first time and with the mods in my sig went 14.3@97mph with a 2.10 60. I have no seat time at the track so I think with some practice I can get it into the mid 13's, say 13.5-13.7 range. The car feels faster than what I ran I just need to practice for it to show its full potential. Alot of these low 13 and high 12 sec passes mentioned in this thread are most likley from expereinced drivers.

    everyone has there own meaning of stock.

    ive never had the intake or valve covers off my car. so i say its a stock motor with bolt-ons. you know tb, mass air, pullies, adj. fpr.
