Default What can I expect

I have a 04 dale jr and im gonna go to the track this weekend and I was just wondering what times I should expect to run. I have a l67 with a wizair intake witha 4' cone, a 3.5' sc pulley, 3' downpipe, 1.0 zzp pcm tune, and autolite 104's. Anybody have a clue as of what time I should expect?

here's some tips might help out little bit. empty out your trunk, spare tires, jack, sub box or whatever. pull out driver's side head light. put your stock wheels on if you have 18" plus bling bling. air down the front little bit and front good tires are a plus. run high octane gas 100 or better. im assumming you driving to the track and if you arrive at the track and have more than 1/4 of tank left i would burn some off. 1/4 of tank or less is good. the track sell race gas any way so you probably can buy it there or bring some with ya.

There is an android app called car performance that works off GPS. You could use that to give you an idea. It gives you different times throughout your run. Basically you turn it on from a stop and when you take off it starts. You could test it out on a highway or somewhere.

it's all in the driver. i made a lot of mistakes lol when i first went to the track. just go out there and have fun. i think everybody should take their car to the track at least once and get the feel to be face off with your nemesis lol, j/k.

If you can hook it, you should see a high 13 out of it at 99-100. My Regal GS went 14.0 @ 99 MPH with the same pulley and less mods.

Air down the front tires a bit, roll into it off the line, let the car cool down before running and you should be low 14s at worst.
