WOOT! I'm happy I started that thread talking about adding this section. I know I will be here a lot. I think most people know me/my car as 'the guy from PINKS'. That car was since in an accident (stupid Tucson driver ran a stop sign in front of me). I've stripped it and purchased another 4g coupe. I'm working on the AWD swap now and I'll have pics once I've made significant progress.
The old setup from PINKS was a mildly built motor (1g rods, Wiseco pistons, 272s) running an FP3052 with a chipped ECU, MAF-t, big FMIC, 1,000cc injectors, Wally 255, and 100 octane. I was only running 18psi on the show and ran 12.5's @ 115mph missing the 1-2 shift both times (stupid '90 trans). Judging my the trap speed, 11's were for sure possible at 20psi.
The new setup: Eagle rods, Wiseco 9.0 to 1, FP3575, AEM EMS, E85, 1680cc injectors, A/T trans with shift kit, high stall converter and chipped TCU for full line pressure shifts, BC 280's, same FMIC, and a further upgraded fuel system. Hoping to run 30+psi. I'm thinking 10's for sure. Maybe 9's. I know a guy with an A/T 1g DSM on a stock longblock (aside from 272's) running low 10's at 13X with a 60-1 and E85. No NOS. His car weighs about 600-700lbs more than mine too.
Here's some pics of the car at various stages in its short life with me. I bought it in September '07, did the motor swap and upgrades, and had the accident in May '08. Lame.
