Hers one for you guys. Guess my ET.

The last time i ran i got a 15.2 at 90mph
That was with a cat back and minor air intakes and 98 octane fuel

I have just put on Extractors(hurricANE HEADERS)
and went to a dyno day the other weekend and outputted 137.1 rwkws

Bit of guess but there are facts for pre and posts runs.

I think 14.8

more help.
a (mock) ef got 135rwkw with this setup he ran 14.9 et on the same day and dyno i went on.

intresting hey.

happy guesssing!

The only diffrence is that the VCT gets me off the line so quick. so that should count for something. i should break 15.0 which i'll be doing back flips

Yes and no.
The significant weight increase from the IRS kind of counteracts the VCT advantage.

so everyone says. considering what i have done i'm very close to catching casper and his VCT. I think it doesent make that much of a diffrence. in stock form yes. ohh yeah you are talking to someone who has had both. i had a 98 xr6 VCT. wrote it off then bought the Ghia. The Ghia is so much faster. and the Xr6 is weird cause it has an LSD. the fairmont dosent! but yeah the Ghia is faster than the xr6. well these two cars at least

wtf? The Ghia is supposed to have an LSD?
And, if your xr6 was slower than your ghia, that makes no sense unless the xr was a dud.
The xr is a bit lighter, but the IRS and engine are the same?

when i mean faster. after modded the exuast on both. there was a straw on the ghia. it was like 1/2 an inch teh.


The ghia uses traction control. so yeah they ditched the LSD. i have checked the diff too. and spun it! its not an LSD TRUST ME! i cried when i did that.

VCT wouldn't be making you get off the line quiker, it should make you boot at 3000 +. At idle, the car is smooth and would stall if VCT made any difference at low rpm, when the rpm is safe and the valve durations can be changed to suit the higher rpm, you would start noticing a difference.
