New best today 6.10@111.85 1.34 60ft 3330lbs. I also got my 12 inch rims in but still waiting on axles so we can shorten the rearend. I also added some quick latch fasteners and ditched the hood pins. I love these things lol.

I took the old girl out today, the track was crap but did manage to run 6.04@114 with 1.36 60ft spinning and scooting around she was a handfull
 I had to take some power away off the hit to get it to go down the track. I left on 50% for .5 sec then ramped from 50% at .5 to 100% by .9 secs the first couple passes I tried to leave on 70%.

I am at a crossroads with the Falcon. Planning a rebuild and trying decide if I option 1 put a turbo kit I have for it on, option 2 get a supercharger for it, or option 3 bump compression up and get a bigger head and keep the nitrous. I can use the turbo kit on my other car. Basically I want low 10s without using nitrous. The Falcon runs 10.70s NA in current form so I need to find 6 tenths, more is fine because I am legal to 8.50s but will do most of my racing in the 10.0 area. What do you guy's think, opinions will be appreciated.

My vote bigger head bump compression.  But I am biased. That's all I know. Blowers & turbo's and fuel injection make lots of power but sure lots of $.

Do whatever keeps you racing and keeps you excited about it.  You've proven yourself very capable of all that you've mentioned. 

My only suggestion would be to think big for what the car is legal to.  In my former, hopefully soon to be again, dirty home garage goofball tinkerer mind, a turbo set up MAY be better money spent up front for more future FUN!

If you already have the turbo kit why not use that to achieve your goal?
Depending on how complete what you have is it sounds like the cheaper option. As much as I love the sound of a twin screw whipple it is hard to beat a turbo.
Although going boosted may require cam and converter changes?

Is turbo a different racing class?

More tougher competition?

I finished installing a Vacuum pump and epoxied a push rod hole on the #1 intake port that was cracked and letting oil into the cylinder when I let off the gas. We are ready for NMRA in Atlanta next week.

Nice looking pump bracket Bam.  Too bad one isn't available with the kit from Aerospace.

I had Brian Correll make it for me I started collecting parts to make one but I had other stuff to get done before next weekend and took the easy way out lol he made it and shipped it to me in a little over week. It fits really well and even mounts the breather tank.

Thanks yeah it's been running good this year. Especially since it has 611 passes on the short block. I chained the frontend down some after that pass. I almost put on the bumper this past weekend the air was really good and the extra power made it stand up I tripped the 60ft with the rear tires lol. I had to go back and take some more travel out of the frontend for the next round and went 1.35 60ft and I had a 120 lbs in it.

Looks like it went straight as an arrow in spite of the wheels getting way off the ground.
