I hear you, been in limbo myself for last 3 years. Either got the money and no time, or all the time in the world and no money. I did make a couple of test passes last year, 9.30 on pump gas. But definitely need a convertor change, my goal was 8.90 on pump gas, but thatís not going to happen. Sold the top end. Now have health issues. My mind like a kid, but my body says no !

Good track trip. 9.65 @ 140.

Lost first gear in trans so I couldn't try to improve.

Great, I am going to a rental Monday. I have less motor than you and a stick shift. Should be fun if it hooks!

It was a ton of work but the car is now fuel injected. Put down 910 at the wheels with 17lbs boost. Went to the track Friday. It was a street meet so they did very little prep. Even launching with no boost I spun and had to peddle. Best pass was 1.78 60'. 9.83@144.5.

I'm still in the major learning curve with the XFI. But it's got a lot more in it. 100+ degree days suk to race in.
