I was able to shave off half a second from previous best. I had a custom axle back muffler installed and did the T/C lock-up trick.

My next mod is going to be a VF30 or FP Turbo. That should get me there.

Congrats Russell.

So what worked best for you when locking up the TC? When did you engage it?

I locked up @ 5,200 RPM's in second and held untill shift. Then I locked up @ 5,400 RPM's in third. Tried a few differant ways but this seemed to produce the best results.

Update 9-11-02

Best run:

60' = 1.905
ET = 14.06
Speed = 96.26 MPH

Mods:
Vishnu Stage 0
ScoobySports Downpipe and 3rd Cat Eliminator
Samco I/C Hoses
ProTorque Torque Converter
Custom Axle Back OBX Muffler (2.25" not even mandral bent)
Torque Converter Lock-Up Mod

New Mods:
Stock tires and wheels

I got some $hit gas and had a slight pinging while making this run. All runs after were slower even though temps were coming down by almost 10F degrees. I think the ECU pulled timing. I'm going to reset the ECU and make another attempt to get to the 13's on stock turbo. I was very happy with the results by just swapping wheels. Gain of -0.1 ET and 2 MPH for $0.00 is the best bang for the buck mod I've made for the 1320.
