How good are you driving a stick? Do we win anything if we are the closest?

There are a lot of variables, density altitude, traction, and especially it being a stick. My guess would be 7.3x @97-98ish depending on how well you can launch it.

let us know hot it goes!

Its going to come down to what kind of 60ft you can cut. if you cut the 60ft I think the car can get, I think you can be in the 7.30's. you mph I figure being a stick should be pretty good. Its really going to come down to how well you can launch the car. I have an auto with less power than you, and I run low 7's, but I have a converter.

Yea but a stalled auto runs faster than a manual. If yours was manual it would probably run slower and dyno more. What are your mods?

My calculator says 7.80's @ 97 mph. Don't be surprised if you run some 8's at first until you get some "seat time". Manuals take abit getting used to especially launching. I bought my 98 Firebird back in 2004, had a T56. It took 3 or 4 trips back to the track before I could get it to run the number that it should. The most important mod is the driver mod, especially when you are new to the car.

I've ran it before, completely stock on factory tires, went 8.4 @ 88 with a 2.0 sixty foot. And 12.8 @ 113 in quarter

I already took that into consideration. My car has run. 6.9. With a converter z06 manifolds, drag pack. DoN't get me wrong, that's what I think the car can run. Not necessarily what you might run.
