Here is a list of all the stages and power and times for fwd Saabs. You can see his times are not bad at all....

I realize its not the best drag car but adding power makes it a lot more fun overall and running the car at the track is fun and WAY cheaper than dyno time. I have the complete TD04 set-up out of an SE that will go on next and possibly t5 cams than a retune with hopes of cracking the 13s.
