No fun for me anymore not being able to race at tracks period , I am tooooo deep below 11.49 (Roll Bars /Out of the Questions ) ... So my thoughts are going Back N/A and crack Harrison's Record :D .. Some Ideas would be nice .... Also I don't need all this power on the street as all i do is a quick hit to 80-100 tops ... don't need the hassle of being caught at high speeds either .. I can Also Entertain some nice Offers on my Ttrim A+ shape + Dual Walbro Fuel Hat not yet installed ..

Why don't you sell it and buy a motor that won't get you kicked out? You can keep the timing conservative to keep you at your kicked out limit.

How much longer you think those pistons are going to handle the abuse? Maybe pocket some money and atleast upgrade the pistons.

Paulo, I think all you need to do is just de-tune-it a little. Like going back to the original pulley and other minor things you've done to the Jeep. Right now you are low 11s, to go back to 11.5/11.6 it won't take much. This way you can keep enjoying the SC and will be ok at the track.
Or, drop a couple of 100lbs sand bags in the back... It'll slow you down and no more traction issues :D

This is the reason I stayed 6.1 n/a.

I'd give lpm a call about upgrading the heads if you get rid of the blower. Mine pulls like a raped ape now. Tuning is almost track ready. You'll be one of the first I text with the new track times. ; ).

I wish you goog luck with whatever direction you decide to go.

Paulo i here you as the faster you go the faster you want go and going back to N/A you wont have to worry about a roll bar. I can tell you now that without A HEAD PACKAGE in + DA its going to be hard to get into the 11.90s. Any way welcome back to the N/A wars lol.

Maybe Chris .

Mario I think all you need to do is just de-tune-it a little. Like going back to the original Stock tune . Right now you are Mid 12s, to go back to 13's it won't take much. .

Lol Jim have a glass of milk

Stop being a girl and cage your jeep with a rearend in it!
Not happening bro :(

What!?! Paulo do something to his Jeep to make it run SLOWER? I don't buy that for a second! :lol:
.
Believe it or not man , I'm even having thoughts about dumping it ..



N/A 426, 11.1 compression, and a small cam like a PWR 218/224 so keep the power level down and im sure it will be slower than a 11.49 at full weight
Well for track days my N/A Set up will get me some good 11's for sure on a nice DA ... Or I'll just bolt on a Maggie :D JK fellas
