Re: 260kw ef xr8

You'd need nawzzzz, neons and lotsa stereo equipment

narh seriously, it memory serves me right, Aussie Pete ran a 13.27 with 227rwkw or there abouts. This is in an AUII?? XR8. So with that onboard you'd probably need a few more ponys than that at your treads, and lots of practice to hit a high 12sec pass.

Otherwise you could try some NOS and make it there with less engine work, and more NOS, noting that too much will kill your engine :)
