    got a fella up the road from me, wants to race.

    he's got a 5.0 with bolt-ons and what sounds like a mild cam, intake/exhaust etc. no power adders, no n20. don't have exact details, i expect it's fairly modded but apparently a stock long block excepting the cam. i don't know what's in the rear, i'm going to assume either a 2.xx or 3.xx rear, unlikely a 4.xx.

    i'm curious how fast could this car potentially be assuming he has no head or bottom end work? could it break into the 12's on decent street tires?

    opinions welcome, thanks :wavey:

    It could be anywhere from a low 12 second car to a high 14 second car.

    There's no "BPU" with foxbodies.

    what would be needed to get the car into the low 12's? in other words, what clues can i look for? i'm not that familiar with the 5.0 performance world but i know automotive inside and out, it's what i do for a living :)

    thanks for the help, it'll help me determine how much i put on the line. i never bet more than $100 on a race but if i think i might lose i'll only put mebbe $20 on it.

    just from mild cam/heads/intake and nothing else I would guess around 13's but its hard to say with the info you've given.

    high 12's might be possible but I doubt it, need more info tho

    Probably in the mid, maybe low 13's depending on the gears he has.

    13's is what i want to hear :big grin:

    i know more info is needed, i'm sure i'll get the low-down but likely after we line up, which is a few weeks out.

    thanks folks, i'll keep you posted.

    Low 12's? sticky sticky tires, hogged out heads, weight distribution.

    If its on street tires and it looks like a street car, it probably is pretty slow.

    it is on street tires. decent suspension work tho and i learned today it def has gears. guess i'll just have to run it and see :)

    thankfully i put in a pair of new turbos next weekend and have everything to dial them in pretty much right away, hunting for 12 flat on pump. i've run a 12.4 and average mebbe 12.7 with the current turbos. regardless, i don't think he has any idea what's coming :mamoru: then again, neither do it :rofl:

    push comes to shove i'll just hafta put in some high octane :big grin:
