Hey Scott, yeah we plan on seeing 12's very soon for sure. Your purchases are contributing to the "navil go fast" fund.

I'm leaning Toward a twin Turbo setup for her. I will be upgrading my current turbos so I might throw them on the Jeep. But we will see.

And my rear end is gonna be fixed Next week. Only a couple spider gears shattered. Nothing major. Look forward to seeing you at the track More. Will be fun ;-)

still planning on hitting the track this year?
Turbo's is a tricky deal with these jeeps and there's on a couple
guys here successful doing them. You'll get to see one of the most
amazing setups in the country as the infamous JOHN S. is moving here
in december... He's at ATCO this weekend and might break into 9's.
Otherwise he'll surely do it at GLD or Byron next season.
My advice is to enjoy the jeep for another year without major mods.
That's ur family cruiser too. Do some small stuff and get into 12's.
You'll feel the difference and when you get tired of it you can always
go nuts. You've got a 10.5 monster once you put the AUTO in....

The parts for my rear end should be here early next week, so there is a chance i might be able to make it out one more time weather permitting.

I have noticed doing my searches that turbos are a PITA with these, so i might follow in your steps and looking into a procharger unit. Seems to work pretty well for you haha. But you are right this is down the road. I am saving up to grab the predator tuner and intake first. Seeing as how she ran a 13.12, once i play with the timing and fuel trims a little that should be no problem hitting that initial 12. Plus she weighs half what we do so she has that advantage already. But it is her baby so whatever she wants to do, she will get. I think for now she wants to focus on cleaning up the car and get it looking more her own before we make it much faster. But i anticipate learning a lot from you and the chicago crew, so i am glad i finally was able to meet you.

This procharger set up is the simplest install and smoothest as can be. I was
prepared for performance headaches and haven't had any issues in over 50hrs.
on the time log display. No problem install, 2 guys 8 hrs. Mine took 10 because
of the Fluidyne raidiator mod. Which is worth it also.
If the 2012 came with this supercharger I'd have no problem buying one at 60-70K
and junking HEMI TME. Even with the boring duel tips. But the new ones can't even
break 13's.

thats good to hear. Seeing as this is a daily driver, i like the sound of how well its going for you so far. I know how difficult Turbos can be for any N/A car. And i dont want navil to be without a car. So i think next year we will be looking into a kit.

and i will say the new ones look ok, but i still prefer the boxier styling of the wk1. Seems more aggressive in my opinion. So i say keep her. ;-)

You making it out to the track anymore or are you waiting for a new tranny?

I doubt Scott will make it out to the track anytime soon bro..... He definitely needs a tranny for sure though as I heard it and saw what his logs look like.... Hey I see you found a few videos I posted up of your sleeper there up on YouTube You have a sick ride ride there bro!

Cool no worries brother! Glad you got your car back up and running! Hey just curious when you ran below 11.5 @ GLD did they say anything about you not having a cage in your car or do you have a cage?

Thanks!

Nope. No mention of it. From what I have heard, you don't need a cage until 10.49 if you haven't modified the chassis all. That's according the NHRA Rules which is what they follow there.
