the car has 84k the plugs are only a couple of months old, fuel filter is almost a year old, 255 Kumhos @24psi and i don't know the alttude it's going to be lower it's close to lake Michigan4VMENACE said:Post your timeslip, if you don't have a camera or scanner or sumthin', just write the times in
R/T - even though it really doesn't matter
What rpms are you shifting @ in each gear? Tires/Rims? What is the altitude @ which you race?
If you have a dyno sheet, share the writeout with us, or the graph.
It could be the altitude, lack of driving knowledge, or your car could be down on power <---We'll hope this is not the case.
How many miles are on it? Is it a coupe? Original owner?
you'll have to enlighten me on the IMRC'scobranator said:With that kind of milage on your car maybe your IMRC's are to gummed up and they're not openning and restricting airflow to the engine, hence you're not making the power you should be. Just something to think about if you run out of ideas as to what the problem might be.
it could be inconsistency and it could of been the track i was not the only person who's times were off. i race the same guy in the fox and his best time that saw was 14.3madmike said:It seems that you're either down on power, or your driving is inconsistent. How was the pass this last time to the track? Did it feel like a clean pass, hit all your shifts good, did they seem slower than the 14.1 pass, etc??? The more you can go and practice the better your times will be, and the more consistent they'll be.
IMRC..........Intake Manifold Runner Control they open up the secondary port to the heads at 3250 rpm to let more air in, below that rpm they remain closed. They have a tendency to get real dirty and gum up and then they don't function properly. If you do a search on them here on the Corral you'll find vast amonunt of info on them.97_cobra_1997 said:you'll have to enlighten me on the IMRC's

it's not so much of the mechanics as never doing it befor or playing with this motor makes me a little scared.93CobraPwr said:search for them again, there is 2 giant threads on them, or jsut scroll down the forum, its an active thread.
Search for IMRC tech day....
I dont know how mechanically inclined you are, but if you didnt know about the IMRC, youmight not want to try doing it yourself
