Couple of 13 second passes in the Sunflower, and a new personal best!!!
Sunday, April 10, 2011 6:11 PM
Finally got to take the Sunflower down the strip for the first time since being built. Was able to make 2 passes. Had horrible reaction times but considering I haven't had it on the strip in 2 years, I did pretty well.

First pass was 13.7 @108 mph...


And my quickest to date, 13.606 @ 107.89 mph!!!


Only had one small hiccup, one of my bottom injector o-rings started leaking so now I have a small vacuum leak.

And once I get some more practice in and my LSD installed, I'm confident that I will hit 12's by the end of the year.

I think I found my problem. Thought I had an injector o-ring leaking, but apparently it was something a bit more substantial, and has been leaking for some time.


Pulled the manifold off and saw this.....


Now I guess that explains why I was breaking up slightly at higher RPM's (Rich misfire). Good news is it can only get better from here.

New gaskets are on, plugs are re-gapped to .035, and the car runs amazing! I usually run about 16.2-16.8 psi boost, and last night it shot up to 18.8! Ooops! so now I'm just needing a retune and I'm confident ill get my 400 WHP and low 12 second/high 11 second goals.

like i said before man you should easily be able to get a low 12 out of your current setup just practice and get some good rubber so you can pull some good 60 foots
