Question 1/4 mile times

Hi all.

I just have a question about the 1/4 mile times that you guys have run. I currently have an EFxr8 manual, with herrod extractors, high flow cats, single 3 inch exhaust, ss inductions intake, k&n and a gms airflow meter. Have not got an official time sheet yet, however the G-Tech says 0-100 in 7.02 and 1/4 mile in 14.8.

Wondering what other people have gotten with their windsors??? Am waiting for a set of under drive pullies. Cant wait to see the difference.

Re: 1/4 mile times

Ignition runs an EL 5.0l Fairmont with :-
FMS Rockers
Sprint Inlet Manifold
Pacies and a 2.5" zorst
Custom cold air thru front bar
and also has a PB in the high 14.8's
With yours being lighter and manual i'd be saying you should shave a few tenths on his time...

Re: 1/4 mile times

IMO you will probably run low 15's. Ignition ran 14.8 but he had changed the manifold, the most restrictive part of the intake system as well as the roller rockers and CAI.

Re: 1/4 mile times

Dodgie has run 14.4 in his ED Ghia - this was with his worked E7 heads... should be significantly lower when the worked GT40Ps go on. I'm at 14.3 in the AU Ghia with virgin heads - Dodgie will be leaving me well behind once he's puts Edna back together.

Re: 1/4 mile times

I did a 14.9 still using the stock 55mm maf and stock cam.
And I also used the stock HO manifold and E7's but I home ported them.
There were a couple of other things, but were going to leave Edna out of this now.

Re: 1/4 mile times

No offence but these times dont look right to me (except for sbutler with a T). I always thought that the V8, once freed up with exhaust etc, was a very quick car. The times I'm seeing here are all very similar to my I6 with exhaust.

This is not shit stirring or anything, I am just confused why there isnt better times being run. I would have guessed somewhere in the low 14's was more likely with some of these mods. What am I missing here?
