:) A YOUNG MAN IN TOWN HERE HAS A 40TH ANVERSERY SUPERCHARGED T-BIRD. HES GOT HEADERS AND A FULL DUAL EXHAUST AND RUNS 14-15 LBS OF BOOST. I THINK HES GOT MORE MODS THAN THAN THIS BUT HE WASNT SAYING. WE WENT OUT ON THIS OLD COUNTRY ROAD AND LINED UP. I HAD MY WINDOW DOWM AND TOLD HIM TO SAY GO AND WE'LL START. (I THOUGHT THIS WOULD BE FAIRLY EASY) . HE REVS THE THE ENGINE UP AND YELLS READY, SET, GO AND WE'RE OFF. HIS FRONT BUMPER IS 2 FT IN FRONT. :eek2: I HIT 2ND AND CHIRP THE TIRES AND STARTED TO SLOWLY GAIN. AFTER I HIT THIRD WITH MY WINDOW STILL DOWN I HEARD HIM HIT 3RD ALSO (HE HAS AND AUTO) I REALLY STARTED TO PULL AWAY :) AT THE FINISH I WAS ABOUT 3 1/2 LENGTHS AHEAD :gr_jest: HIS GEAR RATIO FROM 2ND TO 3RD WAS A BIG JUMP AND BOGGED HIS ENGIME DOWN. IF HE'D HAD A STICK I THINK IT WOULD HAVE BEEN CLOSER. THAT CAR WAS QUICK FOR A V6. IT WAS A LOT OF FUN. BOTH OF US HAD A GOOD TIME, EVEN THOUGH HE LOST, HE WAS A GOOD SPORT ABOUT IT.

Nice kill, guess he didn't bring enough mods. I bet the auto is what is killing him. My father just got a pulley on his SSEi and that thing rips for a heavy 4 door. Its the auto that doesn't like to downshift and has econo gearing that robs potential.

I had a 92 TBird 5-speed; my GTO reminds me of that car in many ways - understated good looks, lots of interior space, good power (well, great power in the GTO). I had been looking for something similar to that car for several years; the GTO is an excellent upgrade.

Based on your description and knowing the times that stock SC's (15.1 @ 93 according to Ford). It would seem he was much closer to stock than he was admiting to.
