I live in Raleigh and the problem is that i have yet to find a local drag strip to test the bird at. I wanted to know what she runs completely stock as i am about to start putting performance parts in her and i would like to have a before and after to look at the progress that i have made. Anything would help right now. I wanna try it bad.



Thanks
Nick Dillon

Yea for sure! I know the time runs for my car, it takes 5.8 sec to get 0-60, but I just want to check... I just mainly wanted a way to look at before and after once i start to add a few parts to her.

Also remember dont think you will see I big drop in ET when you do little mods. Like headers, exhaust and cold air intake will be see you .1-.3 tenths if you can get it off the line without mlting the tires. Bigger gains would be a stall converter, gears and soem drag radials. You could hit .6-.8 tenths.

Yea true, I think i wanna start out small for right now, then eventually work my way up to getting some new gears, and stuff like that. And besides, i have to learn some things about cars before i am able to replace something as small as headers... lol I hate to say it but i am just starting out. So i have been learning and reading up on my car and i hope to learn some more before i start to put performance parts on. I have ALLOT to learn
