Finally got my car done and to the track

Since I got everything done. 89 coupe, tubular k, a arms and coilovers Rear has UPR single adjustable lowers and baseline pro launch uppers, 3.73 gear and a new ford racing 31 spline tracloc. Steeda driveshaft spacer, aluminum driveshaft, a C 4 built by broader performance. Stock block 347 with 170 trickflow heads, lunati 51025 cam, vic jr intake, C&S blowthru carb and a D1SC making 12 psi. I have the distributer locked out and set to 28 total and am pulling 12 under boost Also solid trans and motor mounts. I've never plotted the suspension, but car launches pretty well.

Also it has all the interior and working ac lol

3.75 and 8 inch I believe. I think I can get some more time off my et by tweaking some stuff. I'd like to see low 6 or maybe a high 5. I don't know if that's out of reach.

It's making 458 rwhp so ya I'm pushing it, but not as hard as most. It's plenty fat and very little timing, and I shift at 5800 so I'm hoping it lives awhile. If it makes it to November I'll buy a dart block and swap it all over. As far as video, yes but it won't upload to photobucket for whatever reason

Been doing a little tweaking on stuff, best so far is 1.45 60ft, 6.57 @ 103.45. Getting an anti roll bar and going to see if I can drop anymore.

Because the trans crossmember still has rubber bushings to the body mounts. I've never had any issues with my other fox bodies that made more power running them this way.

Thanks, good to know.....

I always thought that a car that 60's as well as yours would have quite a bit flex in the body. And solid mounting the motor and tranny would take ALOT of that energy. Even with the rubber bushings in the cross member.

It's obviously working very well for you, congrats again.

Not really sure, it's a full interior including rear seat, all the ac stuff is there and works, not to mention the spare and jack are still in the trunk. Lol

Only thing that's missing is the front bumper which I didn't know until I pulled the front end off to mount the intercooler.

Installed my anti roll bar Saturday hopefully that will knock a tenth or so off the ET. I'd like to get to 6.40, which if you look on a 1/4 to 1/8th conversion would be a 9.98. All on a daily driven car.

New best after anti roll bar. 1.47 60 ft, 6.53 @ 104.8 mph. Ordered some stiffer front springs and some afco double adjustable shocks and will see what that does.

Edited because I'm dumb

LOL... I only caught that because we run similar times:



It seems we're both running comparable to our power/weight. I've got a glide/365 sbf/2.3 Whipple making ~14 psi/3400 lbs. I've also got TW 170 heads, hand ported out to ~185 cc's (flowed at 292 intake), etc, etc. Pull out the passenger seat and rear seat and see what it can do. You're teetering on the 9 second edge... if you can't add more power (I know you've got a stock block), run less weight.

Holy crap, they are very similar in times. You have a tad bit more MPH, is that due to the glide and one less shift or tire/gear ratio I have 3.73 with C-4 and 26 inch tall tires. I have new set of M/T pro drag radials that are 28 tall that I'm about to put on and wonder if I should leave rear gear or change to 4.10

The MPH is probably a bit higher because I've got a tad "more" across the board - 1.8 psi more boost, 18 more cubes, 40 cfm more head flow, a bigger cam by 4 degrees on the intake & 10 on the exhaust, etc. Unfortunately, I probably also have more weight than you. But that's my next task.

FWIW, I run 3.08 gears and 26x8.5 slicks. I generally shift at 6,000-6,200 rpm, and go through the traps at ~5,900. That number will go up a little as the weather improves.

Ultimately, I think your D1SC will support more power than my 2.3 Whipple will; like you've identified, your limiting factor is the stock block (speaking of "more," Woody weighed a stock block and my block - my Sportsman Iron Eagle weighs 65 lbs more than a stock block. Should've done the SHP and saved 18 lbs)...

I'm going to try the 28 tall tires this weekend and see what happens, along with new rear shocks and front springs. I'm resisting the urge to bump up the timing and adding any more power until I am done with getting the chassis dialed in. It's fun to see what new parts do one at a time and chipping away at my times. When I hit my goal of 6.30-6.40 I'll probably yank the motor out swap the internals into a better block, or put the engine I built for my galaxie in the coupe and build a bigger inch one for the galaxie.

Galaxie build

Not sure of wieght, but it's got everything a stock one has minus front bumper stuff (which I discovered when I pulled the nose off to mount intercooler) front sway bar. Also has tubular K so that drops some, but then add in all the procharger stuff. All the interior, ac is there and working etc. spare tire is still in the car as well.

Take out the unnecessary weight - no point in taking a spare tire and a jack down track with you - every ten pounds is .01 seconds and a little over .1 mph. Good luck and post your results from this weekend; I plan to hit the track on Sunday myself...

Got another best today. Of course it's cooler so it's going to pick up

Need to work on figuring out exactly what I'm doing so I can replicate times I dial in. I keep braking out but luckily most of the time they already red lighted.

Nice! I'm close in times. I'm a 306 with a small 76mm turbo and a glide. Only 9lbs and a 6.6 at 102. On 28 radials. I'm trying to get it to 60 better my best is a 1.44. Then I'll add some boost. North Star is my local track! They always harass me b cause I don't have a cage tho

I bought a 6 point cage from Wolfe Racecraft on Friday and installed it this weekend along with some strange 10 way struts. So I won't get fussed at for no cage now.

Why did you decide to go 6point bolt in vs 10point weld it? Im on the fence because its a street car. But my goals will require a 10point.

Same reason. Because I drive it regularly and like the option to take the door bars out. If needed I can still add the front hoop later, but at least i have something in there now. And it's a bolt in cage, but I welded it together. It fit perfectly and no fitting required. There's lugs and you slide the rear bars over. I paid a little more, but also only took an afternoon to install.
