Talking Went to the track, what's your opinion?

Guys,
I ran a 12.6 at 105 last night with my new Powerdyne 6 psi (makes 5 psi), and wanted to know if I am running where I should be?

Here is my combo:
94 5.0 GT , Stock Mass air, Powerdyne 6 psi, 70mm TB, Performer Intake, 1.7 RRockers,Performer(6037)Heads (bone stock), 24 lbr's, 10:1 FMU,155 lph pump, Shorty Headers, Bassani Cat/Flowmaster Exhaust, 3.55 Gears, ET Streets.

Interestingly enough, I ran with all smog eq. active.
Also, the car has 136,000 miles on it.

Will a bigger mass help, since I already have the bigger stock one with the screen removed?

Will I blow up this motor, since it has so many miles on it?

How much will an MSD and a wider spark gap help (right now I am at .035?

How much HP am I making at a stock weight?
Should I be making more?

Thanks in advance for your help

with 105mph, 12.6 is a great time. 105 should be your mph without the powerdyne. however, you should be running a lot faster with boost. 12.6 sounds about right, but the 105mph doesnt.

IMO your car should be going at least 115mph...and should be going 11's if your hooking decent (1.8 or lower)

I have a 95 gt with a powerdyne blower on it. You can get a 9psi pully for it. I'm about too get it for car. It will help alot but i don't know if you will blow your engine.

When I had my 6lb Powerdyne, I only ran once at the track and I my et was a bit slower than you but my mph was definitely higher. I ran as fast as 112mph in the quarter while only seeing a best of 4.5psi of boost.

Is your car tuned for your combo? That's a big part of getting the best of your combo. I think a good maf will help a lot. A small mod like that on a sc engine sometimes nets big gains. I dynoed 381rwhp/367rwtq SAE at the time. Now I had a 73mm maf, no cats, and a dyno tune so I'm thinking as it stands, your car is probably making less power than that, even with a custom tune.

The average Navy pilot, despite the sometimes swaggering exterior, is very much capable of such feelings as love, affection, intimacy and caring. These feelings just don't involve anyone else.

I run spinning mid 12's at 114 - 115 mph with a custom tune. I see about 5psi. I also have a 80mm pro-m and 42's with no fmu. I make 395 rwhp and 390 rwtq. Before powerdyne I ran 13.2 at 106. You should have more mph.

Thanks for your feedback guys, you are right the car did leave hard, a 1.69 60ft time, hooking at a 5500 rpm launch.
Maybe the FMU is killing my top end, since the ET and weight say I am making 340 RWHP.
