Once tuned up and looking good, it was off to the dyno, where, on the 100-horse jetting, the GT is good for 372 hp and 436 lb-ft of torque at the rear wheels. It's also good enough for 11.90s on Nitto drag radials in complete street trim. Bob says his present goal is to run 11.60s at more than 120 mph with the larger 150hp jets in the NOS system. He's also thinking about adding a Vortech or a Pro Turbo Kits single turbo kit utilizing whatever money he can make from side jobs out of his garage. Wait a minute, Bob. Isn't this where it all began in the first place? Guess we'll see you in the 10-second zone next year.
