well im out this year. i havent had the time to get the parts i needed. with my cams my brake fade is hard to predict and control even with ss lines and racing pads. i ran her on the sheriffs training track in okc a month or so ago and it did really well but i dont feel it would be as great on a larger track. so im out for road racing this year. will just be there for support and show off the "thumpidy thump"

 

with any luck next year i'll have brembos up front with steeda 13 icnhers out back and a vacuum pump to back it all up.

 

hopefully i'll get to meet some of yall

Vacuum pump?

Tell me about that, if you would...

its just an electric pump that kicks on when ever your vacuum drops below 18 inches of mercury. its supplements the vacuum that the engine provides to operate power brakes. at idle i think im making around 8.5 inches of mercury....i need to be making atleast 14 to fully power my brakes. its perfectly fine for street driving and if i keep the motor spun up i can get away with on the track for aittle while. however brake fade is more noticeable with the lower vacuum.

 

heres whats im looking at.

Interesting!

I wonder if there's any benefit for a stock-cammed N/A SGT?

i've heard of people running them with stock cams though honestly im not sure. alittle research would go along way here. it would only be usefull if your dropping below 18 inches of vacuum.

 

 

Worth looking into... thanks!
