Now I'm into the 13s (quarter mile time) I'm thinking about setting a new target. I'd like to get below 13.5s. I'm trying to think what I can do to make my car faster without ruining it's great drivability.
This is what I've come up with so far:
-Swap my Irmscher Softstars 6x16et49 alloys at the front for 7x16et42.
-On the new wheels use Pirelli PZero Rosso 205-45-16 (currently 195-45-16).
-Get lambda control added to optimise fuelling.
-Paul Ivey high flow valves.
-Five angle inlet valve seats and three angle exhaust seats.
-SBD's new development hydraulic cams - should see a good increase according to SBD.
-Remove the sunroof - reskinning the roof is apparently fairly easy on the Mk2.
-Improve gear change times (I think I need a gearbox overhaul).
-Rolling road set-up of ignition timing.
Can anyone think of anything else?
The above could add another 10bhp to the engine if I'm lucky. Also, it should get better traction and hopefully I'll be able to change gear quicker. The different tyre size will unfortunately make the gearing slightly higher, but I can't go for 206-40-16 as there are no good tyres in this size.
Do you think this would be enough to get below 13.5s? Take into consideration that my car is certainly capable of high 13.7s at the moment, I just never got a 100% perfect run this weekend (first 30ft of second run with the rest of my third run would have done it).
Is it even realistic me aiming for this target of getting below 13.5s?
