I can't say about my new setup; it is all Dave Zimmerman's stuff. My old car in my avatar was Eibach drag springs with Lakewoods 70/30 in front and 50/50's in the rear. I had stock uppers and Southside lowers. It sixtied a best of 1.31 with the stock T-5 and no power adder. I am hoping to do much better with the coilovers (Santhuff) and Dave's stuff. Oh, and about 1,000 more hp. lol James

Car only weighed about 2850. Ran pretty damn good considering the pos tranny and the engine was setup for spray. I think it says alot for how great the fox body suspensions are for drag racing. James

I built an engine for a friend that should make 630 or so on pump gas (420 with hi ports) and I think he will sixty better than I did. I have told him many times the t-5 probably won't hold up for too long, but he doesn't seem to want to fork over the money for a Tremec. Guess he won't have much of a choice once the t-5 gives up the ghost. lol James
