    That would be the recipe!.

    I hit 11's in mineshaft air one cold Sunday in January with the daily driver '92 5.0 on motor. 324rwhp/330rwtq (H/C/I 3.73's, ET street, borrowed skinnies, 5k side step the clutch and powershift the T5)
    1.65 60ft
    11.90 at 115mph.

    I could be wrong, but it is my understanding that all things being equal, a quicker 60' will equal a slower trap speed. Example, your Explorer running back to back on the same day, if you spun a bit out of the hole (which equals a higher 60') you'll trap higher than if you dead hooked ( which equals a lower 60'). I'm not master at drag racing, but that's just something I've read a lot over the years. If you can get a 1.7 60' AND trap 116+mph, you might just get that 11 second pass!

    You are correct. If it dead hooks the ET will faster but the MPH will lower because it doesn't have the extra time to produce the higher MPH.

    You guys are right. But his 1.99 is really high...so if there’s some bogging off the line, some sort of lag...he may get a faster 60’ and faster trap. But taking into consideration his whip wasn’t running perfectly...this might be a time where he can improve both. Only one way to find out. Let her rip tater chip

    I only know one person who cares about trap speed....and he doesn’t get out of bed for less than 126mph @Jordan_R :hail:

    This all assumes that I'm hitting the limit of what I'm putting down to the ground. I'm not running out of steam up top, the turbos pull hard when in their butter zone. Keep in mind, as I'm coming thru the trap, im STILL accelerating. With a faster 60', I'll basically be starting with a faster baseline mph to get me to a higher trap. But as @802SHO says, we won't know until I run it again. I've got a new tune from Brad that bumps me up to 19psi vs 17.5 i had that day and some TC tweaking, so we'll see. I also need to figure out this oil burning issue. I need to launch as close as I can to 3k rpm, but not sure my brakes will be able to hold it...

    If you're brakes can't hold it, let me know where to send the money so I can swap them onto my ride ;)

    Well, was cranking out a bit of work on my built block yesterday. insulated the lower coolant pipe to match the upper one I did awhile back. This pipe was also ceramic coated by Jet Hot. Took all freaking day to deal with taking that lower pipe out and back in since I had the heads on. Working on this pipe is WAY easier with the heads off, but I missed it at the time of the build. Still, I was determined and got it done!

    Possible game changer component?

    There's quite a few weak points on the 6F55-based 3.5L ecoboost platform and for the last few months, I've been noodling through solving a tiny sliver of that long list...the low-pressure fuel pump. I'll be doing an in-depth write up here soon so I won't go into too much eye-glazing detail at the moment.

    The intent here is a plug and play (well, sorta lol), PCM-compatible dual in-tank LPFP. No extra regulators, auxiliary controllers, Hobbs switches, etc. This has the potential to crack the ceiling on fuel delivery for extreme e85 applications. As some of you know, the low pressure side can't keep up, even with a DW300c.

    When I get the controlling portion nailed down (working with a fueling company to develop a FPDM replacement that can push the dual pumps as well as work 100% with factory PCM). I still don't know 100% if this will work, but all signs point to yes. This is a mod geared towards those shooting for the upper levels of power output. I will keep everyone posted on my progress as well as a build list on how to make this conversion when I've ironed out all the specifics. Thanks and stay tuned!!! Some pics comparing stock module with the dual one.

    I love it when new products can make it to the scene! Hope she works well for you and this is something we all can benefit from!

    @ EcoBoost_xsport ...... really interesting to see / read over your trail blazing on this aspect of the build as it relates to fueling.

    I second @ Jordan_R 's comments. Would be really cool seeing this work well for you.

    I did get a hearty chuckle out of 802SHO 's post and GIF. Funny a$$ $h!t right there.
