change of plan ... it looks like Byron will not have T&T this Sunday , so we are going to Rt 41 Dragway instead ... we will be meeting in Buffalo Grove @ Intersection Arlington Heights Road and Lake Cook for Brakfast ( Buffalo Rest. ) @ 7 am and leaving from there @ 8 AM.

Is it pontiac powered, and is it a street car?

Cool, gotta have the baseline runs to know where you're going with the mods. That 11.03 is lots of hard work and $$$ to squeeze that out of a street car, i still have nitrous i could spray on it, but im afraid i would get 9ish and the IHRA would start to yell at me even more than they already do.

Good luck with the GTO, hope to see some good numbers....
