Drag Racing at Calrsbad Raceway:

With the B&M Ripper shifter, throttle coolant bypass, ported MAF body, recalibrated MAT sensor and Pro Flow+ installed, it was time to see if all the hard work would pay off.

Everything but the new MAT sensor worked great. I noticed some detonation immediately so I stopped and pulled it out. I then reset the computer just to be safe. The B&M Ripper shifter was awesome. I didn't miss any shifts and barely had to concentrate on getting into the right gear. As you can see, the car really improved. I got as lot as 13.146 at 110.05 MPH and as fast as 111.52 MPH. That's a major horsepower improvement. If I find some traction I'll easily be down in the high 12's.

The car was run in street trim starting with a half tank of gas. All shifting was done by the shift light on the HUD. It was about seventy degrees and mildly humid outside. Traction control and ASR was off.
