Default Topswap to track [email protected]

I finally got the car to the track. I wanted to compare to the last time i ran the car with just the NA L36, so i had all my tools, spare tire, speakers and all in the car. This all adds up to about 100 lbs or more. Only track prep i did was made sure to have less then 1/4 tank of gas and removed driverside headlight for more air flow to the intake.
Mods for the track pass are as follows:
-Fender Well Intake
-Light ported L67 TB
-Ported GenIII blower with Stock pulley and stock injectors
-Ported lower intake matched to heads
-Home Ported heads with SI valves, viaton seals, and L76 springs, manly retainers, comp locks, stock rockers, iridium plugs.
-Speed Daddy headers mated to my 2.5" magnaflow muffler
-9.4 compression
-4t65e with 3.29's and trans cooler
-245/45-17 tires
-DHP tuned.

Future mods planned:
-Installing the new PLX wide band O2 that is in the mail.
-New tires. Looking at Michelin pilot sport AS3's
-New timing chain and either rockers or a vs cam.
-Possible pulley drop to a 3.6 or 3.5

Nice job!! Looking at your sig, it dropped almost a full second off your time AND your MPH has a new high point in the 1/4 mile!! Both awesome improvements!!

Really takes a lot to get those quicker times. Wonder if you dropped the 100lbs of weight, how much that might change things for you.

Great work!! Always happy to bench mark improvements!
