Yea i already found out 2nd dont like anything past 6200...which i should have remembered from my 2v/3650 days. 3rd and 4rth seem to be fine at that rpm.

Really? Mid 12's? That with a radial i assume?

Yeah that's true. Never had issues with 3rd or 4th. 2nd sucked at high RPM. Why so high though? Is it cammed?

No cams. No idea why. Like i said, i bought the car with all the bolt ons but the P/O didnt leave the programmer with the car.

At least it doesnt sound like it has cams, although it does have fancy ford racing laser etched valve covers

I've never seen them on a 3v, but from what I gather they are veryyyy popular.

My car ran 12.9 with the stock 3.55's and factory shorties. I was on 555R's too. If I had MT's and a 4.10, I always thought the car was capable of 12.60's.

Put resonators right before the over axle piping. It really cleans up the sound.

Oh and I've always read that LT's were a waste of money on 3v's. There really isn't too much power to be gained once you go to an OR x or h pipe.

I dont care what anyone says, LT's vs stock manifolds with aftermarket mid pipe, LT's win everytime.

What they're really trying to say is...their panties are in a bunch because they spent $1000 or more to have headers installed and only gain 25hp.

Its not like the LT's are making you lose power, so how are they a waste of money?

shaved more time off my ET than any other mod. But I DID go from a catted H on a shorty header, to an OR H with LTs.

I really do need to get the o/r x for the pypes instead of the high flow catted one.

You aren't going to gain 25 hp over an off road mid pipe. The restriction is in the mid pipe and not the headers. The OEM manifolds flow very well.

I didnt say 25hp over a mid pipe. I said just 25hp in general. From bone stock to LTs with o/r x or H, 25 hp.

People these days are so use to seeing magazines bolt on spray and gain 100 hp for less than $1000 that they get pissed when they drop that money on something else and dont make 100 more hp

Depends.....For example on my car, I'd rather spend $600 on a FRPP Intake manifold. I am actually going to probably buy one this Spring and get my car retuned with 60 lb injectors.
