    What should I do to get this time down?
    Throw money at it, the answer is always cubic dollars! :-) That speed with that ET is odd for sure.

    I'd have to agree with JonnyG. Get a converter with a 4000 rpm stall and swap the rear gears to 3.91 and that thing will sing and dance! As it stands now, you are not showing that your car makes 465 HP. You are trapping .2 and 1.2mph faster than my bolton car making 369RWHP. It would appear you need to spin that thing to the moon to get to your HP. Just curious, do you know what kind of torque you are making and what rpm it's making it?

    Ok. My opinion. I think a close look at the tune is in order. You made way more hp that my g8 with a .5 slower time. Granted I had a slightly faster 60. Don't throw any parts at it until you have at least more time slips and a tune by Rick or Patrick.
    Rest in Peace Charlie!

    It would also be helpful to know what your goal is.

    FYI, My cubic dollars answer was tongue in cheek, other than for the most part, it costs more to go faster.

    Rick Crawford has built several of those. He gets stacked up with cars in Spring waiting for builds. He's the guy to talk to. Check the 1/4 mile pages.

    I think your changes here would be smaller cam paired with the perfect gears and stall combo, killer tune, race gas and driver mod. That's essentially Ricks recipe.
