Thats a great time for the mods mentioned. I think the time is coming for when I take the wagon down to the Creek and see what it'll do. What sort of launch did you try to get that time by the way?

Nice time indeed. Has anyone run their at the old Eastern Creek strip and the WSID strip with the same combo and know i there is any difference?

I am planning on hitting the WSID strip in the next month or 2 and was wondering if I could expect any improvement over the old strip given it was uphill slightly for part of the track.

i think you'll find there may be some hidden little extras done to the car when you bought it. My combo is in my sig and i ran a 14.6@95 with a std unported ho manifold and 65mm throttle and made 200rwhp. i put the explorer on and got an extra 25rwhp

There has to be something extra as EB's simply dont run those times in stock form...or close to it
