Notes from a Bracket Racing Legend.... Angelo Taylor.
Open Super Trapp was SLOWER
than stock muffler....no muffler at all was slower yet!!! I think
around 16 discs in it equaled the stock muffler......24 discs worked the
best and 2 1/2 behind the cat was used
for best of around .25 in quarter.....maybe 1 mpg. The Super Trapp ended up being a over expensive stainless
steel megaphone after one year...all
the guts blew out of it....discs and all......a
twin tip Hooker resonator in its place made it run and
sound identically to the Super Trash....
20" tall slicks were at
least .25 quicker in 1/4 compared to the 225x5x15
Sumitomos that I use....no spin with either.
Car still has stock gear
ratio....powerbraking SLOWS THESE DOWN!!!
I think the computer starts to back down the timing when you do this. Best ets were done leaving at only 1000-1200 rpm.....also, best ets are done by leaving the car in D1.....the computer will automatically shift it at around 5800.....for most consistency leave it in D3......computer shifts it then at around 5500....regular drive and you'll be in fourth gear before the 1000' mark!!! Best time ever was 15.19; darn good for stock gearing and automatic..
Some guys swear by Magnecore spark plug wires......some make outrageous gain statements....I use the bone stock ones. I also use the stock Champions and not the Accell U Grooves.....
Warranty will be up next year....improvements will be made to the car by the way of gear ratio, adjustable fuel pressure regulator, fuel pressure gauge, and......of course.....NITROUS from NOS!!!
