COMMENTS/OBSERVATIONS:
My original post was lost in the Great Crash of '09 so i thought i'd throw it back up............
6.92 was run on 10/31/08....DA was -065..........ran a 6.96@98 on 4-17-09.....DA was +1100ft......i've made over a 150 passes on this combo, it's a blast to race and is daily driven also:)



A HUGE thanks goes out to David Claflin for all the tuning work he's done on this heap, it would be running 7.20/.30's without his tireless efforts...........like i said "You da man!" :clap

 :clap...very nice times for the combo there..

whats it run in the 1320??


Title: Re: Not a proven combo, just my junk.....II
Post by: Mr.Blue on April 18, 2009, 04:13:08 pm
The nearest 1/4mile track is 2 hours from me..............My local 1/8mile track (Emerald Coast Raceway) is about 20-30 minutes from me and is an excellent facility..............i've run the 1/4 a few times at some FFW/True streets back in the '94-'95 but i'm more of an 1/8th guy just not worth the long drive for me, plus i'm a "budget" racer and just run for fun and hangout with my buddies at the track.............i've made 131 hits this year between mine and the wifes car :drink

Post by: 93mustank on April 18, 2009, 06:04:14 pm
I wanna see some 1/4 times.....

You think you might be over geared for the 1/4 ?


Title: Re: Not a proven combo, just my junk.....II
Post by: Mr.Blue on April 19, 2009, 12:25:47 pm
Yes, it's got a little to much for a 1/4............Probably wont ever see a 1/4 track, i've always raced 1/8th. and have never had a 1/4 track remotely close to me, none of my friends race 1/4 or are really interested in driving that far just to get maybe 4 runs...........i typically get 7 runs at EC and thats not even trying, plus again i just do it for fun and dont have  alot of "disposable" income to set-up for a 1/4 car and i dont do any street racing at all.............it normally cost me $35 bucks to race and that includes food/entry/gas etc...................speaking of which i gotta go, the track opens in 30 minutes and i thought i'd put some laps on the wifes car:)

DId you have different tires on it this time? I thought it was running 7.70's?
I still want to try the 90MM TB and Lightning meter on her car.   :pimp

The guy filming the blue car is a GTO driver, he seems mightily impressed don't he?? :spit:


Title: Re: Not a proven combo, just my junk.....II
Post by: Mr.Blue on April 22, 2009, 07:09:48 am
The track was crappy and i didnt try for any long cooldowns, best '60 was a 1.70 on the ET streets..........there were only like 12 cars/bikes there :dissap:...............weather probably scared off a few people...............Yes, that TB/meter test will be cool :naughty:

It's been doing that ever since David started tuning on it :laugh

At least the nitrous questions have stopped at the track :dissap:


Title: Re: Not a proven combo, just my junk.....II
Post by: Russell Guise on April 23, 2009, 09:34:34 am
lol that's funny

I to would be asking to pull your car apart too looking for a bottle..
Not too many EFI cars shoot flames out of the exhaust on the shift.

I suppose it's not impossible. The thing runs hard..  :thumb:

My last nitrous pass was in 2001.......................i'm an all motor guy now.............K.I.S.S......Keep-It-Simple-Stupid :drink

Maybe David slipped a bottle in as part of the tune? LOL.............

No need to pull that car apart; all you have to do is look through the glass.  There isn't any where to hide anything in there  :burnout

Title: Re: Not a proven combo, just my junk.....II
Post by: Mr.Blue on May 06, 2009, 07:28:00 am
LOL Eric........you're right about that...............

stock bottomend, bearings, rods, pistons etc.................

I shift it at 6K................

I've been real pleased with the durability and drivability of the A5 on my combo, as well as Tonys customer service at Astro.................





Title: Re: Not a proven combo, just my junk.....II

wow awsome, cars like yours are my inspiration to make my stock bottom end hit 11s cept idk if i can deal with a 4.56 rear in a DAILY DRIVEN car, rain snow and everything else

Rod needs to make an update.... :pimp

Added: 2step/4.88 gears/28X9 MT's/3" bullets w-turndowns off the headers (replaced 2-1/2 bullet combo)......everything else is the same.........

#'s will be .60-1/8th.-MPH

1.43/6.90/98.25
1.43/6.90/98.25
1.44/6.91/98.19
David added new tune....
1.49/6.90/99.35 (followed bikes and street cars)
1.43/6.87/98.96
1.44/7.46/71.32 (missed 4th. :loser)

D/A was -400/-700 all night, plus the track prep was outstanding

Big thanks to David once again for the "custom" tune, all of those #'s are PB's for this car and David thinks there might be more hiding in it with the tune and getting the loose nut behind the wheel tightened up......................

Buddy of mine should have some vid posted up on streetfire in the next few days for anyone interested, i'll link it when he does...........

I'd also like to add i've made 160 passes in '08 and 128 so far in '09 and only broken a 3rd. gear shift fork, these little 302's are tough!

Way to go Rodney! Glad to hear you are trying some things. Do you think its better with the 4.88's or the 4.56's?

Looking forward to the videos. Thanks for the update.

Talk about a bracket racer, that's pretty damn consistent.

It works, I did some things wrong with it, he still has it though, if he don't use it on his, I'll use it on my GT, or get another one. ;)

I know with the FI you have a lot of tunabilty but what do you think a combo like this would do with a carb and a vic jr intake.
Just curious.

You'd be surprised how many people mention that to him at the track, then I mention the joys he'd have in swapping jets at the track and he lets it go. I know he's thought about it, and probably has the stuff to do it. It's his car, if he wants to that is entirely up to him what he does with it.
From our conversation last night I think he's on the verge of sending the heads up to DB for some work and getting a cam from Jay. THat will probably happen in the late spring so he can drive the "short bus" during the summer when it is hot. :D

I went with the .88's becuase i wanted to try a little larger tire (28x9)..........it's really close to the 4.56/26x9 gear/tire combo i was running...............On the carb deal, well, #1. David would disown me :rant #2. Just feels "wrong" since the car came with EFI to give up on it anytime real soon..........plus like David said i've still got the Sup. Vic and we may try and give it another round of testing this winter since our track runs year 'round and has a few "special" bracket races planned, meaning the track prep will be decent for testing..............

Like he said with the gears and such it probably wouldnt like the 1/4"

and from my old brain..lol   i think its something like 1.56 x number

so  6.87 x 1.56 =10.71..ish.. :clap


Title: Re: Not a proven combo, just my junk.....II
Post by: 95GTspeeddemon on November 09, 2009, 07:33:44 pm
he would probably run out of rpm on the top end going that fast, but a bottom 11 none the less.


Title: Re: Not a proven combo, just my junk.....II
Post by: liljoe07 on November 09, 2009, 07:43:17 pm
Thats why I said it wasnt accurate. Im sure he would  be out of RPM. I just like to see the numbers it converts to.

Rod's taking the summer off, no sense wearing out the car when it'll not match any numbers it puts down during the cooler weather months. I'm sure he'll be back at it once the -ber months come around

Nope, track has been closed since late November, I gather there are some issues with the owner and the persons leasing the track, or something along those lines. That's between them and they are keeping a close hold on what is going on.

Still have ole blue sittin in the warehouse............just got some more 4.56's to put back in it so i can run 26"s on the back and keep things more "cost" effective as i have 3-4 "race" cars and like to at least keep some things interchangeable among them lol............our local 1/8th. miler shutdown and i'm HOPING one thats only 50+ miles one way will maybe opening back-up..........hopefully get a few runs in this season when it cools down.............just a side note, i've got 500+ passes on that stock bottomend and over a hundred in the 6's, he's a tough little sob lol........(knocks on wood)

so rodney, i heard talk about a super vic, are you still using that?


Title: Re: Not a proven combo, just my junk.....II
Post by: Mr.Blue on July 17, 2012, 01:44:21 pm
No............i need one of two things or both really........cubes and rpm to effectively use it...........my combo is just to mild for that intake to outperform what i have/had (systemax/TFS-R currently)............it drove fine and ran fine, just didnt make as much power or i should say torque as the "long" runner intakes and ran a tenth or so off at the track. I think i made 20+ passes with it and it just didnt run the numbers..........i loved the weight, looks and ease of maintenance but i was tip-toeing in out of the 6's and wanted to be there more often than not lol...........best pass was a 7.05? i think with the SV and the mph was off one or two.............7,000 rpm 347? heck ya! but that would need a faceplated trans and a host of other stuff and i'm poor..............not to mention i have car ADD and swap from project to project having 5 mustangs lol.........

High 6's are fast enough for me on my budget but i would like to slip into the 6.7's if we can get a track opened close enough for me to work on the combo steadily.....going once every month or so doesnt cut it for me trying to dial something in (like the driver :hmmmm:)

I'll also say its still sitting on the shelf ready to go in case i ever go that route again..........maybe a standard vic jr :drink


Title: Re: Not a proven combo, just my junk.....II
Post by: 95GTspeeddemon on July 17, 2012, 01:55:09 pm
my 302 might need a "smaller" intake too. i was figuring it had a little left in it with a different intake. great for the 331, but too much in the 302.

6500rpm
224/242 on a 109.5IC
canfield efi, cousin to the super vic i guess.
4.30's on a 26in et street
8.49 @ 87 1/8 is a ton slower than yours
12.9 @115 on a 2.0 60ft
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uVF4IrQWgNg

not trying to derail the thread, just some comparison conversation.

if i get a hold of a vic jr im going to make it EFI and try it. i am not going to spend $$$ on those long runner intakes ever again. way too much $.

Post by: Mr.Blue on July 17, 2012, 02:39:55 pm
Well i'm sure that anyone watching the vid is going to tell you to work the launch out first...........i had to leave around 5600 or so on the 2 step with the SV to get my car to '60 near the systemax...........if you have a friend thats got a systemax/tfs r/victor efi i'd try it and see what it does...............i was giving up 35+ ft/lbs of torque across the board with the SV...................I'm assuming jay designed your cam for that intake but i would definitely try something else/smaller and see how much it might pick up.........

Duane B. told me i'd have to turn it 8000k for it to work lol...........


Title: Re: Not a proven combo, just my junk.....II
Post by: 95GTspeeddemon on July 17, 2012, 02:51:39 pm
jay designed that cam when i had a 11:1 331 with a rpm2. with that engine he said the SP would work great, pull higher.

a friend has a 302/195/rpm2 deal with a cam from jay. were going to try both intakes and see what happens. he has stock gears right now... lol

i got a stock cam coming, see how mine acts.

i need wider/ more sidewall/ stickier tires and a driver mod lol
stock clutch isnt going to last long either...


Title: Re: Not a proven combo, just my junk.....II
Post by: Mr.Blue on July 17, 2012, 03:13:56 pm
Lol.............guess i should have thrown the rpm2 in there as well, gettin old is hell on the memory...............sounds like you got a ton of work ahead of you lol............

Okie Dokie..........just a  little update..............got the .56's in and made a few hits at the local '600ft. track a few weeks ago, best was a 6.59 and a few .61's thrown in, drove it there and back 70+ one way whoohoo............Made it out to the track (PCD 1/8th mile) with David this last saturday and ran a 6.94/.96/.97 and would have got a .92/93/94 on my last pass except for killing 3 wheel studs on the launch (1.466)...........had ONE spare moser in the bag so i pulled the axle and beat out one of the broken ones and got the spare shoved in and drove it 135 miles home lol............i had replaced one broken one from my last mobile track trip and i think its the one that held, the three "old" ones died........got a new set ordered up..........MPH's were all 98.7 or so on the 6's............ran a spinning 7.12/.14 to start the day then they got the track squared up a little........also a 7.05 in the "street" tire lane just for kicks.......DA was around +1000/1100 all day and one of our local (53 miles for me) 1/8th. mile tracks is opening back up.....YAY!..........so that means more testing! Anyways, i'll probably lug this thing back up to the '600ft. track on the 23rd. and make a few more hits.........500+ passes and its still chuggin along :P

Summit sells a knock off of the vic jr that is already EFI ready. I would look at the ports and the plenum to see how look.

had ONE spare moser in the bag so i pulled the axle and beat out one of the broken ones and got the spare shoved in and drove it 135 miles home lol

He's going to bring the grey car and try for some 8 teens lol........i'll bring #002 if we do...........gonna hit mobile friday with the GT's barring any complications.........

how fast/what style driving are these commutes? and what kind of mpg do you assume just street driving?

my junk gets about 8 just tooling around but I want to say it used to get about 14 with an aod. but everything was ootb and had shorty headers back then so not apple to apples

next question- how many t-5 have you had? LOL


Title: Re: Not a proven combo, just my junk.....II
Post by: Mr.Blue on November 16, 2012, 11:09:15 am
Tomorrow or next Friday?

Next..........should have said the 23rd. (MOBILE) and 25th. (PCD)...........

Jay........it's a 100 miles or so on the intersate at about 75/80mph..........not really sure on the mileage as i havent "checked" it..............i'd guess around 15/16 based on how much i'm using (including racing)?...........i think the coupe was getting 18 on the PCD trip?

Just have the A5 in the GT and the WC (2.95) from Pro-Motion in the coupe...........also ran my stock one for a 100 passes and it wasnt broken when i pulled it (runing high 7 1/8th.s).......it was also ran in the shortbus for a 120+ passes and i crushed the 3rd. gear inserts and broke a shift fork on another trip.......its pieced back together for my "almost" done budget coupe POS..........have another broken one on the floor (need to machine the mainshaft for a '93 cobra input) to fix (bought broken) and convert my silver car from AOD.............lotsa work and no money :hmmmm: lol...........

Maybe the red car, headers for the LTD won't be here by then. I might throw a ported intake on Brandon's car to see what that does.

Rod's been chasing an issue with this thing for awhile, it would kind of lay over a bit at the top of second, and a little in third. I was kind of thinking it had something to do with the fuel system, because he did let it sit for awhile. He pulled the tank and replaced the fuel strainer sock, as it was jacked up, but still no joy at the track as it still didn't behave right. Then he pulled off the two-step and it ran fine on that next run. Don't know where he's at with it now, we'll see what happens on the next track outing.

Lol...........it was stuttering at the top of first..........havent touched it since we got back from the last trip.........did run a 7.09 & 7.10 in the soup leavin off the clutch in "test mode" at the end of the night lol.........at least i didnt break anything unlike our first trip there.........

Post by: Mr.Blue on August 28, 2013, 08:50:41 pm
The coupe seems to lay over in 3rd and picks back up in 4th...............been doing that.............the GTs issue is something new that has cropped up since Atmo opened, think its more ignition/2 step related......i hope  :loser

That was our last attempted track outing (Me, David , Michael) week before last............a HELLUVA thunderstorm rolled through 30 minutes after we got there and David had changed tires, we had tools out, canopy up chillin in chairs watching the weather when god saw us sitting there minding our own business and decided to try and wash us off the map............that didnt work so he tried to BLOW us off the map........like IDIOTS we stood out there holding down the damn canopy while it sideways rained under it and shot lightning all over the joint..........we were SOAKED from the neck down, all three of us lol..............it was still raining when we got a slight break and helter skeltered our shizz in the cars and rolled out...........me with no heat/defrost etc but i did have an extra shirt............try again in a few weeks when Pirate Mike gets back, hopefully it will have cooled down a hair and the mighty one will leave us alone this time :drink

Gusts of 40MPH, 2.13" inches of rain in about 45 minutes, us 3 knuckleheads stood there the whole time holding onto Michael's sunshade so it wouldn't blow away. WHen he first set it up, it was kind of breezy so we tied my street tires to it to act as anchors, but about the time we saw the wall of rain coming at us was when it started to blow away in spite of the extra weight on it.
The other people there had enough sense to stay in their car or trailer, or get up under the awning at the food shack, when it started raining, but with the wind blowing like it was most of them still got wet. :orglaugh
Driving the 2 hours home with soaking wet clothes was too much fun.
