New Track Times Are In

Unread postby quartermaster » Fri Aug 21, 2015 9:00 pm

Hi All. Ok a little background. Last year with a fmu and a boost retard box I went a best of 11.3 at 127 with approx. 9 or 10 lbs. I then changed the pulley for more boost and went 1 run 11.3 and slightly less mph and became a member of the melted pistons club. Bought a used Tweeker rt ,larger injectors,larger fuel pump and rails. First time out this year with first real attempt at tuning 11.47 at 124. Fast foreward, lots of reading and tuning later. This Friday 11.006 at 132.3. 75F and medium humidity. I granny shift because the T5 is on borrowed time. Timing was 25 at 180 load, fuel was high 11s on the wb, injecting 19lbhr water meth starting at 1lb boost and increasing to full at 7lbs or so. I don't actually know how much boost because I think this is the first time I got the belt slippage to a minimum and was more concerned with watching the wb gage and the end of the track getting closer. My guess would be 14 or 15. Where can I go from here? More meth? more timing? The best premium fuel I can get from the pumps is 94 octane. 10s here we come!!! Andrew

your engine is at its limit with what you have, best bet would be to swap the trans so you can actually beat on her

you can spray a little more meth to richen it up a tad and keep the aircharge cool, I wouldnt recommend pushing anymore timing to her unless you run race gas for safety

try to get the suspension dialed in and consider running more boost until the t5 lets loose

Hi Decipha Thanks for the advice. I wanted someone with more experience with boost etc to let me know on the timing. I forgot to mention my mustang is a full weight street car with nothing removed approx. 3200lbs. I had it weighed a few years ago. Scattershields are not light!! My 60 ft times are not very good. I can get a 1.68 or so if I am lucky. My local track is the back straight of a road course with a small concrete pad added on. I do need to work on the suspension so I can get more out of it and I plan to upgrade the T5 with Astro internals. I only have 373 gears because I drive it to the track and I also do some road course stuff for added fun. Thanks to everyone on here. A year ago I thought that there was no way I could computer tune my car and would have to spend big bucks for a dyno tune and who knows how good that would be. Andrew

Whoa. Very nice mph! If you could shift hard that'd be mid to low 10s.
You may want to check out gforce gears or astro gears. They make better stronger gears for the t5.

Proudly beating the piss out of a stock T5 since 2007. Probably 75 passes and lots of dead hook wheelies. Put a new counter shaft in it once. I do think 400HP is the limit before it is a complete time bomb. Wondering when I run out of luck and I do have a spare. :)

Hi Red5.0fogger Yes I want to do an upgrade to the T5 like that. I probably will do the whole kit with countershaft and everything. The only thing that is probably saving it right know is that the traction at my local track is poor. No traction compound sprayed down and it is not used very much as it is actually part of a road course. A good 60ft time for me is a 1.68. Also my suspension is not the greatest for drag launches as it is a dual purpose car,drag and some road course stuff.
Hi Stangd I don't know the hp of my set up because I have never had it dynoed but I'm guessing mid to high 500s. Right now I drive it to the track which is about 45 min away on skinnies and 27 10.5 Hoosier quick time pro. One of these times I'm going to get busted and its always a crap shoot as to whether the T5 is going to let go. I am restoring a 72 F250 that will be my tow vehicle but that is still some time before being completed. Cooler weather is on the way and if the stars and the moon align I should have a 10 something time slip before the year is out. Canada = short summers

Do you ever have any problem getting your T5 in 3rd gear under power?

And good luck on the 10 sec pass. You have the power to get well into the 10s. What kind of 60fts are you running now?

Hi Stangd No I don't but I granny shift in the hopes that the T5 will last longer. My current 60ft times range from 1.68 to 1.74. Not great but I can only launch at around 3000 otherwise it just spins worse. The quick time pros are set to 12psi. Adjustable shocks and struts UPR lowers stock boxed uppers with spherical bushing in diff housing. Also has a panhard bar on it for the road course stuff. I had Megabite Jrs before and lengthened the bracket so that I had 3 mounting positions. Tried them all but nothing seemed to make any difference. 60s always the same. Oh ya I also have air bags for some adjustability but haven't played with them much. I also have a tubular K member with stock control arms and springs. I see some vids of other tracks and I am envious of the prep and condition, but I have to work with what I have. Andrew

I use my clutch too. You are not going to shift my T5 at 6K with any kind of HP. It's hard to get a clean pass but I'm still having fun. We are running the same 60fts if I don't go crazy in the burnout box. A dead hook slows me down to 1.80 60ft. I have 26" MT ET streets on 15" Welds, Baseline brand rear suspension with no track bar. Strange struts made a good difference. Great weight transfer and a consistent small wheelie out of the hole. The only part of the run I feel I have mostly ironed out. Any more aggressive and I'll be on a tow truck. I've snapped axles, took out an 8.8 etc. I launch like I mean it and there is a price. Trying to find that place where it's fast but I don't have to spend $500 every time I go racing. :) Just need to lean out my WOT and I'll get my 11. Then I'll spray it late season in case I hurt the 347.

Hi Stangd I have 27x10.5x15 Quick time pro , I upgraded my axles before I had problems and also went 5 lug as I also converted to rear dics and sn95 fronts with the aluminum 2 piston calipers. I upgraded my 8.8 with carbon fiber clutches but only got a season and a half. This yeas I put in a Detroit Tru Trak locker...no more problems. I shift around 6000 ang go through the traps at 6500 or so. I have 373 gears. I should pay more attention to the shift light because if I wound it out to 6500 in the lower gears it would probably be a bit quicker. I have a Mexican block for whatever that's worth with a billet main girdle. Forged crank,decent rods and a fairly light rotating assembly with a 28oz balance instead of 50 like stock. The crank balancer had to take 24lbs of rotating weight out of the crank and some on the flywheel so the crank did not look like swiss cheese. I will try and spray a little more meth and work on my 60s. Good luck with your goal of cracking the 11s. Andrew

Maybe and maybe not. Every combo is different, and the entire car and you are in play on the launch. On Friday I really wanted to race, and knew my tune was rich. Knew I wouldn't be setting any personal best ETs so I decided not to get stupid heating the tires and wasting them. Launched at a lesser rpm and still had a bit of tire spin. Best 60ft ever and I did it a couple more times. A bit slower trap speeds with the tune anyway. You just never know until you try it.

Hi All I,m going to the track again this Fri. This time I am going to take the screen in front of the maf out and see if I can get a little more air in there. Although it doesn't seem like it but screens are fairly restrictive. On my gas fireplace in the house there was a screen over the opening where the fan blows the hot air out. One day I had the front trim face off (screen) so I could clean the glass. I turned it on and when the fan came on I could not believe how much more air came out into the room. I don't know if this translates directly to what will happen with my maf sensor but I'm going with it. I found a place on line that sells honeycomb elements for maf sensors just like the oe stuff for 14 bucks. I'm going to give that a try later when it arrives. They look like they are less restrictive than a screen and may straighten the air better. I think I will up the water meth a bit like Decipha suggested. The forecast here is for mid to low 70s with low humidity. Sounds like a forecast for 10s to me. Andrew

make sure you dial your fuel in first without the screen, its not uncommon for fuel to be 15% or so by simply removing it

In the interest of fair reporting. The spare T5 will be going in for the remainder of the season. See what happens when I run my mouth on the internet. :)

Here is the life story of my T5 in a short paragraph.

110,000 miles of stock duty before I bought the car. I ran a 300HP combo for five years or so. A few thousand street miles and perhaps 50-60 passes down the strip with a King Cobra clutch, DRs and good suspension. Good hard passes, like sidestep the clutch at 4K or more. I know it comes at a price but pulling the wheels winds my watch. I installed the 347 and raced some last year. Went through the T5 first. My cuz is a drivetrain expert IMO. We threw in a new countershaft, bearings, synchros etc. The KC clutch was clearly not sufficient for the 347 so I changed to a Spec 2+ clutch. I really like the clutch. Fine on the street and pulls the wheels every pass now. Got my 60fts down in the 1.60s which I think is respectable for an SN 95 combo. Should be good enough to get in the 11s NA. I am stuck at 12.1 now. After a few dozen passes 3rd gear became extremely difficult on the strip more times than not. I read that the trans case is probably deflecting under torque. I know 400HP is a lot to ask of it and I haven't even sprayed the 347 yet because a clean pass is so hard now. I have a spare trans with a rebuild tag on a 94 Cobra I parted out. Bottomline is I have two T5s that are not grenaded yet, no noise, no sparklies whatsoever in the oil. I don't have $3K for a proper trans and I won't anytime soon. I need to disassemble the T5 I am removing and figure out what wears out, because they shift good enough for awhile. I am OK with swapping out the trans a couple times a year and throwing a few hundred bucks at it. If that doesn't work out then so be it. An auto is not in my plans.

If I had any interest in bracket racing I would run an auto. The whole concept of being penalized for setting a new personal best confuses me. Brake lights should not illuminate before a drag race is over. I just missed a good local deal on a Tremec. That would probably be good enough. I know I will end up upgrading the trans eventually. SN 95 T5s actually have decent resale value. I should probably sell them while they are intact if I had any sense. A streeter could get years of use out of them.

Hi Guys Yea I'm a stick shift guy. I have a Monza, Chevelle, Mustang and soon the truck All sticks. They're just more fun. Like Stangd ..an auto is for consistency for bracket racing. I just go to the track on test and tune evenings. Just fun and nothing too serious. Do you guys know if there is a 6 speed that fits well in the foxes? I don't like the idea of cutting up the console or anything. Adapting no problem.. but it has to look factory inside. If there is nothing then it will be astro guts for the T5. Andrew

Andrew

I've given the Astro T5 route some thought. What I don't want to do is spend half the big money a proper trans would cost and still have something that is shaky as I grow more power in the future. My current thoughts on using a T5 are .... I already own them, if I can keep them rolling with small money and don't mind removing my trans every season it might make sense. Maybe I'll change my mind eventually but for now that is my chosen course of action. Perhaps if I drove an Astro prepped T5 trans I would have a different opinion. I haven't priced one lately.

And I think we have the same outlook on racing. Go racing when the mood strikes, have a fun car for a little street driving.

Hi Stangd. Yea that is my thoughts on racing...just have fun and don't take it too seriously. My car is a full on street car and I won't compromise on that. I like driving it too much. My car is relatively quiet in side. You can listen to the radio or have a conversation no problem. I kind of chuckle to myself when I see cars that are much louder and clearly would not be much fun to drive that are so much slower. Now don't get me wrong I'm not making fun of anyone, I just find it amusing. You do what you can with what you have and not everyone has the same budget. However money is not as important as knowledge is. I wish I knew someone with an Astro T5 so I could get first hand knowledge of what they are like. With the full package they are supposed to be pretty strong. Damn the Canadian dollar. 33% exchange ,shipping and 13% tax makes it expensive. Andrew

Yeah there are a lot of loud slow cars driving around. :) For some, sounding and looking rowdy is most of the goal. That's OK too if they enjoy it. We all do it differently. I have friends with zero respect for any power made by a blower or spray. I don't concern myself much with that stuff. I don't care a thing about AC, cruise etc so my version of a street car is different than others.

My gut reaction about expensive T5 mods is it's good money after bad as the saying goes. The Tremec site clearly states it's a 300# torque rated transmission. I'm not believing you can change that number to 500# without serious sacrifice in use as a street transmission.

On a positive note I pulled the tailshaft and top off my spare tranny which was supposedly was rebuilt per the tag on the side. It looks mint with no debris in the case. At least for now :)

Hi Stangd Have you ever thought of epoxying a magnet on the outside of the case to hold the chunks if there are any? just a thought. You are lucky that you have a spare or two. I don't. Ok lets say this together..Dear Lord thow art it heaven, Please bless my T5 so that I may make it home safe and all others that have T5s as well. Ahmen Andrew

I think the damage is done by the time a magnet could help. This isn't normal and gradual wear. Perhaps one of those magnets the roofers use to clean up the nails in the yard? Maybe save a life if you could get one strong enough to pick third gear up off the track. :)

Ok boys. If this were a card game I'd be saying read 'em and weep! 10.93 at 131.5 a 1.64 60ft and 100 in the eighth. Still granny shifting or maybe great granny shifting. The air was ok but not as good as I had hoped. Low 70s but the humidity was around 60% I did not do many changes since last time but I did up the water meth from 19 to 21 lbhr and upped the max delivery boost point trying to get a little bit more total volume and more even delivery with increasing boost. The funny thing is that I don't know for sure what my max boost is. I lowered the tire pressure from 12 to 11.5 and with trying to keep it straight and trying to glance over at the afr gage I just haven't had a chance to look at the boost gage. I did notice that it goes a tad lean at certain points through the run (12.0) But only for a split second and then drops to mid 11s. Well I'm not sure how much more the old girl can take because on the last run it made a slight crunch going into second and the clutch seemed like it slipped a bit when grabbing fourth. I have been looking at some vids about a T56Magnum install in a fox. Doesn't look too bad for fit. Very minor clearancing of the front of the shifter opening in the trans hump but that's about it. It is supposed to be rated for 700 ftlbs. Pretty expensive though. New shifter, scattershield, driveshaft etc. Stay tooned for the next episode of As The T5 Churns. Andrew

Nice run Andrew! Describe your launch procedure with a blower please. I have zero experience with them. Just curious because we cut the same 60fts. I'd need some serious spray to hit that trap speed. More than I would ever give a 347 in a stock block.

Hi Dewayne Well what I do for launch is not very fancy or anything. I do my burnout in second gear,revs up to around 5000. When the tires begin to grip and draw the motor down I give it a little more gas and let go of the line lock. I then roll out of the burn out under power towards the lights. I stage, when the lights start to come down I bring the revs up to about 3000. On the last yellow I release the clutch and pretty much floor it. Sometimes I have to back pedal a bit depending on the traction. I don't actually know what I rev the motor to at launch because I generally don't look at the tack because the lights are coming down. I have been around this stuff for a while and have a pretty good handle on the sound of the motor rev wise. This time I set the tires to 11.5 psi which seemed to help. I don't want to go any lower though because it squirms around going down the track. This time after launch the tires growled and vibrated quite a bit. I have experienced tire shake only once ( which is quite violent by the way ) but this was no where near that bad. I don't think that I am lifting the wheels, if I am it is only a tiny bit. Last night I also had the front struts set full loose and the rears full hard. I still have the front sway attached and may try undoing it next time ( two weeks ). I would like to get the suspension to work better but am not really sure what to try next. I could raise the height of the rear with the air bags which would change the suspension angles. I don't know if that would help or not but there is only one way to find out. Funny thing, it seems as though the car accelerates the most in 4t
h gear but I know that's not true. Maybe it's because the other gears are over so quickly. How does a run go for you? Andrew

For years I would scald my tires in the box and it would often dead hook. Then sidestep the clutch at about 4500rpm. Often it would dead hook. Fun but all I accomplished was snapping axles, differentials and sometime end up on a buddies trailer or a tow truck. Somehow the T5 lived through that. My 60fts maxed out in the mid 1.70s. OK, but not spectacular. Last week I knew my tune wasn't lean enough so I decided to go a little easier and save some parts maybe. Short burnout and launched about 3500. Tires slipped, still pulled the wheels and I ran my best 60fts ever in the mid 1.60s. Didn't expect that at all. I have some experimenting to do and I plan to play with my strut adjustments going forward. Maybe I have been beating up on my car unnecessarily for no reward? I have Strange drag stuff front and rear. Baseline brand rear suspension (sphericals for upper control arms). It's a street strip setup so it is fairly pleasant on the street. I'm not in 1st or 2nd long at all. 3rd gear is perhaps my best when I can hit it clean. Not surprised you like 4th with a blower. I'm taching out at the end of 4th as I cross the line and wondering if I need different gearing or tire height. Not happening soon though.

As far as unhooking my end links. I tried that for a minute. Didn't like it on the top end. My car is very stable at 120+ and I'll keep it that way. It was loose with the links removed. Not worth it to me since I am not having a problem launching anyway.

Hi Dewayne I also cross the line with the shift light on solid at 6500 rpm. Next year I may go from 27s to 28s. Partly to lower the rpm a bit but also because 27s are not that common. I have the quick time pro which are a dot slick and would like to move up to a full slick and hopefully more traction. Andrew

I wouldn't mind trying some real slicks, but there are guys running sub 10s on drag radials so it is as much about setting up the suspension, I've seen 28s slow a lot of cars down.
