Dialed in, I would think your goals are no problem. Hope for a 12.80 and maybe get close.

I know a guy with a combination like that that I drink beer with. I'll have to talk to him about his combination next time we drink beers LOL.

Been there a few times, but made some changes to hopefully get me to the 12 second range.
That's an easy one Jason, 3 car lengths slower than my little car!
Times are all that count here Jimmy. good luck with your setup this year.:p

Not knowing the VooDoo 60203 numbers (and being too lazy to look them up), I'll assume 240ish duration, high .5XX lift, 110LSA. Short tires w/3.73's and OD. 396+.060, Stock heads, probably 2.06 Intakes and mediocre compression. Pushing 4000 lbs.

I'm gonna have to say low 13's on a good day

13.6 best


you'll notice I put the weight in the initial post.:p
BTW are you gonna put on some real tires for this year's event.
I want to see what it does the way I drive it, on street tires - that's not to say I won't borrow someone's, but I don't have any need to buy a set. Got everything working great, and my tach dies. Still trying to find why, it's a PITA to pull the cluster all the time, and I don't like relying on the limiter to tell me where I'm at. I could always stick one on the column if I don't have it figured out.

You should take your car to a dyno first - it will give you a good idea of where the air/fuel ratio is, as well as what it should run.

FYI - my M-I-L is still hanging in there, doing "OK" right now. Don't think that will last much longer, though - amazing as it is this long. Thanks for the input early last year.

Anything I can do to help Mark, call me anytime buddy. I wish the best for her and your family. I'll agree on the air/fuel ratio, my carberation was really screwed up last year.
Rowdy, the adv. duration is 268/276, [email protected] .050 .542 .554 lift

I have a 69 hard top with basically the same setup. I ran a 13.007 @104.5 at Rock Falls Raceway in WI last Oct. I ran under 13.10 7 or 8 runs in a row. I have a 30 over 402 with rect. port 291 heads, Isky 280 hydraulic, comp roller tip rockers, RPM Air Gap, 750 Speed Demon, MSD Pro Billet Dist. , turbo 350 with 2600-2800 stall, 3.73 gears, 275/60/15 BFG drad radials, Hedman headers open, on pump gas, temp about 55-60 degrees. I am only able to muster a 1.85/60 foot with my setup so another tenth or two is still there. My car weighs 3860 with me in it 1/3 tank of fuel. I drive the hell out of my car all summer racking up over 5000 miles last year, which is good considering MN weather. I plan on a 496 in the future but the old 402 just likes to be beat, so this year I may hit it with a 75-100 shot just to have a little more fun.
