RX takes another beating at the drags...

The best I seem to be able to squeeze outta her is 14.20 seconds at 93mph. My 1/8 mile time was 9 seconds flat. It wasn't enough to take the WRX running bolt-on goodies, he ran a 13.4. But that new Cobra stayed right next to me until 3/4 of the way down the track. That was a blast!
Now it's time to install the parts I have laying around in the garage: spider intake, T3 turbo, bigger home-built intercooler, external wastegate, Crane cams ignition, then get a pair of cams ground at Delta, MegaSquirt and possibly NOS.
It was running pretty consistant in the low 14 range except for the times I grinded gears, oh, and the time I had the parking brake lighly set. DOH! It's hard to tell the difference rolling up to the line with parking brake set and the rear diff locked. I didn't notice the "parking brake" light until after the race. Oh well, it did good and everything still seems to beholding together. I got about 8 passes and still drove it onto the trailor at the end of the night.

make a break indicator light on the dash maybe,,, or put a higher watt bulb in the exsisting indicator. just little friction can ad seconds

I'll put a glasspack on it, right now it just has an open 2.5" section of pipe that goes almost to the transmission crossmember. She's a bit noisy.
I'm so tempted to do a VIN switcharoo just so I can drive it on the street.
The parking brake light was on but I just didn't notice. I felt the car dragging a little bit when I was getting staged but I thought it was the locked diff in the rear.

I never congratulated you on your time. Congrats! Nice times! I wonder who'll be the first into the 13's on here?

Turns out that my boost was pegging the 20psi boost gauge at the top of the track and cutting the ignition. I'll turn it down a little bit and dump in some more unmetered fuel with water/alky mix to see what happens. This thing leaves the line like mad then kinda looses juice at the top of the track. That is why I get 1.94 second 60' times and 9 seconds flat in the 1/8 mile at 75mph but only reach 93mph in the 1/4 mile.
I'm working on an equal length stainless header for my T3 setup, it's about half done. I'll post some pix when I get er done. The primaries point at 45 degrees and meet towards the front of the car then turn and head back to the passenger side. I'm thinking about plumbing the wastegate right next to the oil filter and have it dump towards the right front tire. That should be obnoxious enough.

I too was wondering if anyone had gotten into the 13's. I'm at 14.5 right now.
I have the same issue with the title. My XT was brought down to my dad's shop by another place because they couldnt get it running. They then went out of business soon after and the car stayed with us. Turns out it had 1 snowmobile spark plug in it, quick swap and it worked like a charm.

Ive got the 5th tripping at like 13-14. I dont know exactly cause last time out we had it early and then just turned the screw out until i was happy. Didnt check the exact psi on that.
Sounds like quite the engine you've got going there. Weve got a T3 sittin around we might work with over winter, but this year we're just gonna fiddle with the current 'stock' setup and see what it'll do. I want to get a torque converter modified, and maybe do some headwork. Ive got a lot of irons in the fire right now with school and working and stuff so no major projects until winter.
