Rookie's first time out.....

Please don't laugh too hard. Any tips???? Im all over the place. First off the 3.08's need to go.

Run # 1 2 3 4 5 6
Reaction 0.7508 0.8029 0.3091 0.025 0.347 0.4069
60 2.39 1.95 2.12 2.28 2.08 2.211
1/4 ET 13.17 13.0002 13.32 13.46 13.16 13.22
MPH 108 95 104 106 99 107
Coasted Coasted

Im crossing the finish @ 6100 RPM in 3rd gear. My starts are so screwed up I think I could get into 4th if I could get off the line. I didn't want to spin it higher than 6200 and coasted on a couple passes.

My launches were erratic. I started from 3K,3500, and 4K and spun every time. My first run I damn near stalled the car out.

Does any of this data show what my car (not driver) has in it?

Car is 93GT with nothing removed except the spare tire. AC, PS is all there.

Will 4.10's be enough Tim?

I have not had it retuned. I am thinking about going the Tweecer route for now to save a bit of $$ as opposed to a standalone.

www.tciauto.com has some nice calculators in the tech section that will give you a place to run some ##

I would think that a 4.10 is about right.

Save your $$ and get a AEM. I have a tune that will be about perfect for you.
Used ones come up for $800-1000 just have to jump on them.

10-4 on the AEM. There are 2 up online now. How does that work with Nitrous (maybe I wont need it)?? If I can run 10.99 or better Ill be happy.

Im starting to think that my windsor is a pig even though I darn good parts in it. Am I missing something here?

With the correct gear and a few tricks high 10's are easy.

AEM will get you there faster.
