Depends how good of a driver you are.....

I'd start with a Ported Blower, 2.93 upper and 4lb lower and a GOOD tune. The tune will be the most important thing for the cars safety and will get you the power to get you there. Without Drag radials you're going to have bad wheel hop, but with the power you will be making you can just leave off idle and slip the clutch out of the hole.

List...

Ported Blower
MAFia or SCT MAF
injectors or fuel pumps depending on power level
new clutch for sure
JLT intake
Metco Idlers
GOOD Tune

other than that just drive the $h*t out of it :D

To keep the cost down if you go with a 2.75 upper and idler, cat back, cold air intake you should go about 11.80's 11.90's and with a sticky tire 11.30's-11.60's many people even going faster. My car had a 2.8 upper and idler, offroad X-pipe, MagnaFlow cat back, UPR cold air intake and on a street tire went 11.89@124.1 and on a Nitto drag it went 11.37@123.23. So it could be done, besides you will be very happy with the gain's you'll get with any mods you do to your car. Well good luck with it.:thumbsup:

You can def. run even high 11's on a good day with a pulley, tune and exhuast. Mine has 2.76 upper, Billetflow idlers, magaflow exhuast or catback, kooks headers and offroad xpipe, Custom SCT tune, LFP heat exchanger, and intercooler reservoir, with mt drag radials it ran 7.72 in the 1/8 mile, and a 11.79 at 119 mph in the 1/4. Good luck man.
