The 99 head could mean better response and 10-15 more hp.

I was being conservative, initially I was going to put 15-20.

that and head work on a 99/00 would equal a lot more.

Maybe with a worked 99/00 head and gears you could hit that 11.5??

My turbo will be capable of 11's, but the stock 1.6 may not be.

I think 11.5 would be cake with those added in. Not sure how well the stock block would hold up to that though.

Congrats!

Great driving and obviously great car setup. I'm going to guess that you make 290-305whp on the dyno.

What boost level was that run made at?

I do so need to join you next season at the strip. I know I suck at drag and it really isn't my thing... but every once in awhile it is pretty fun.

We can have an RA1 battle... even though you are already quite a bit faster than I.

Congrats on the 11.9. Shoot for 10.9 now, thats a good goal.

I'm hoping to see a 10 sec pass pretty soon. We'll see if I make it there or not.

Mike, I see Apex talking about a 99 head. How many additional hp would you guess you made with the BEGI intake manifold?

BTW Apex, really nice job!

If I were in your shoes, I'd port and polish my head and put in the BEGI intake manifold or maybe the one they're currently developing with braineack's assistance.
