Damn thats real good with that set up. My motors similar and I went 12.07 on motor but at 4100lbs. Do you know around what the compression is? Pump gas? I dont think my set up would go nearly that fast in a fox body.

I guess you have a bar in the car. I drove my truck 70 miles from my house and got kicked out after my first spray pass running no time It did run 10.85 at 120 though. First and only time there.

Its a 10 pt cage and if you went 12.07 at that weight i think you would run the same as me your talkin 1400 lbs lighter your making some good power to run 12.0s at that weight. compression is about 12to1 i think and i run cam 2 110 i tryed 93 and it sputters and spins backwards sometimes when i shut it off. never with race gas. pressure test was 190 to 193 psi.
