Racing the cougar on T&T night... this run was against some moron with a firebird that had wheelie bars and huge slick with a stock 305... he ran a 14.66 to my 14.35
88 Turbo Tbird 5speed VS Full bolton lightning
Lightning runs mid to high 7's in the eighth. Here is a video of the tbird vs full bolt on lightning. When I hit 3rd you can hear my Exhaust note change, this is the car going super rich ( due to slight Boost creep ). My fuel tables are super rich above 15 psi so when it starts to Boost creep it goes 10.0 on the AFR gauge and the car quits pulling. Need an external wastegate to fix this problem.
Anyway we ran from about 20~30ish roll to around 85 or so.

Everything on the car is stock except a MSD coil. The 5.0 car has 171,000 miles on it. Not the roller motor like the Mustang GT has. Video skips due to camera fugi a-350.
