Yeah 15.0 from an ELII XR8 AUTO STOCK is extreemly good. Much better than I expected.

Good stuff. :D

The EL1 XR8 sucked balls though???

Don't worry Kilma, i'd be more disappointed than you would be.
I'm only getting 14.2's which is absolutely F%^&*d.
If i keep the thing, i'll get it up to 8 PSI, where it should be, and see what it does then.

have you got any thing else done to the motor besides the blower & the extractors & exhaust...

I don't think so. Check his "EOI for sale" thread for full details: http://www.fordmods.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=26615

I am curious to know what sort of 60' times you are getting though. you are only 10hp behind me, so it should have a high 13 in it at least.

Yeah, there's nothing else done to the motor, and it is only a Series 1.
I'm getting 2.1's for a 60 footer, but i do only have the 3.23 LSD, and the clutch has started slipping at the last few meets, so its getting fixed soonish.
Yeah i would be happy with a high 13 for the moment, but looking for alow 13 or high 12 at the end of it all. (8 PSI and 3.7-3.9's in the a**)

I'm still a little disappointed though...

My LSD is starting to stuff up, and its only the stock gears (I don't evenknow what they are).

2.1 60' is pretty good. Mine is sitting on 2.2sec.

Once you get the 8 psi running through it, you should get an easy 13 to high 12 if it will make the power you are predicting. Make sure you keep us updated with how you go.
