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.
Ignition runs an EL 5.0l Fairmont with :-
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...
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.

Wouldn't you love to say that about your car?You loosers
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.
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?
