3) More of a question. What psi did you do your runs in? What elevation was the track at? Your 60' could be improved by lowering the pressure in your tires.

4) Then lastly, anything to help the engine breath, won't hurt.

You got it.

Street tires 20-30 psi.

Start from the intake and work all the way back to breath better. This will also help you understand what parts are involved.

Intake, Throttle body, Intake manifold, Heads, Port & Polish, Headers, Y pipe, Hiflo cat, 2.5 inch exhaust and Muffler inlet. Throw a SR5guy chip in there-anytime.

I broke 100MPH several times in the past N/A, just never with a 13 sec timeslip.......

Like I tell my friends and a few haters; All you'll see is the "END" in my Legend!

After all, any way you say it, 2008 only rhymes with one of us.....

So i hit the wendover track today, the track is kinda old so they dont give you time slips they just call out your time. So you have to make sure someone is listening hahaha! My best time was 14.83 I couldnt get traction for anything i was just spinning all through first. I should of lowered my tire pressure but i wasnt thinking

Mods:
CAI
75 shot
High flow cat
2 1/2 from cat back
cheap dual tip chrome muffler
REALLY HIGH ALTITUDE HAHAHA!

Here is the vid since they dont give you time slips. Sorry the vid isnt too great it was taken with a digital camera and couldnt zoom in.
