hey guys, just wondering if anyone has run an auto 5L eb with 3.9's and thermo's or similiar mods down the strip?
i know its not going to be a record breaking time but just out of curiosity im interested in what my daily banger would run. 15.5? 15.3? faster? slower? let me know what you think!
cheers

both my stock eb ghia 5.0s have run 15.7 bog stock on 250000 plus motors.
My eb ran a best of 15.3 with stock 3.27 gears, roller rockers, extractors and a cai, it ran a 15.2 with a morestall and the above mods.
if your motor is healthy you should run a mid to low 15 maybe quicker, at around 90mph :D

ran a best of 16.6 last night guys, 3.9s and thermo's fitted and mixer ring removed...not sure what the issue is haha. first run it fried first and second so had a woeful start and pulled a 16.7, second run did a big skid in second and into third and had no traction problems but was very sluggish off the line.
Launch seemed to be a big problem, was catching my mates manual vr that pulled a 15.4 by the end of the track but the thing just wont get off the line properly, had half a tank of gas, petrol, subs and spare wheel still in it so that is possibly part of the problem
just thought some of you might be interested

Not to shabby, Ford always seem to be a joke off the mark, but once they finally pick up they pull well. Pull out the spare and whatever else you have+ have less fuel and you might take .01-.02 off the quarter time.

it wasnt a point of breaking any records more seeing what my daily could do in full street trim.....and believe it or not i drive day in day out with a spare tyre and subs :shock: and alot of the time with half and tank of gas and fuel.
Anyways, dont own that car anymore....since then have had a turbo ed xr6 and am now starting to build up my ef with a stage 4 snort kit, now thats a car that wont be running in full street trim
