As always huge thanks to all that came out.

Best run of the night as always was the last pass, I had time to go again a few times but I felt this was good enough.

Had a bit of a rough start running way to rich on the first pass and then having the throttle cable pop out of the holder on the 2nd pass but after that the car seemed to do good. I had a few issues here and there where it felt like I ran out of gear or hit some kind of top end limiter in 3rd or off the line having some odd misfire of sort but all in all a good night.

After every pass I would pull over and tweak LH just a bit more, Seemed to work as at the end of the night I picked up 2+ mph at the very very end.

On the Front.... rear tires are ET Drags 24.5x8x15. On street tires the 265's they spin until almost 3rd gear.

Congrats on the 12.11, that's very quick for a stock block/head car.

and I do agree it seems you're running out of gear on the top end.
I wonder if you'd be better off trying to roll through a something taller

I say you John Force the f'ck out of of those rubbers and knock off a 1.6 60ft. :nod:

Super night for you!

Question thou: How do you tweak LH in real time?

You burn your ECU chips on-site?

Mike, the sound of your car spooling is the sexiest thing I have ever heard...I think

Very respectable, VERY respectable.

The car sound awesome spooling up. No break up or pops. Sounds like it is well tuned.

Hit the elevens, be happy, then back it off a tad for reliablility and bracket the hell out of them!!! This makes a nice commercial for Chips:nod:

Added the 044 inline, added 3.5psi boost, TTR gear is back on running +3 advance. And from there an almost new mapping for lh (along with new set of constats) as I was running super rich after the 044.

As for tuning at the track check out the lh thread in performance, ostrich for real time tuning.

Either way went from 12.5@106 to 12.1@111 so that is around 40+whp gain from just those few changes.

As for going for me stopping... Not going to happen, I have new rods, higher cr pistons and fresh block along with a kenny head in the plans. Next comes most of the interior will come out and in goes a cage along with proper seats and belts. From there who knows.
