Ok to be fair if anyone wants to change their vote just put it in a post. The reason being since It`s taken me longer than expected to get on the track, when I go it`ll be only once with the stock engine since frank is ready to swap in.

Just seeing if anyone even reads this thread lol.

It was kind of a last minute decision. Now I'm kind of unsure whether or not I want to pull the mule yet. Best run of the night was a 13.26 at 103.46mph and still a lot left in it. I developed a sizable vacuum leak not sure what it is yet, maybe a intake gasket or coupler? The track was a little slick and remember I'm setting up the suspension and clutch as well. I launched at 7000rpm on launch control and it was spinning the tires pretty good but still moving forward. I feel just getting the launch and traction sorted out will be an easy 12.

So I may just leave the mule in for a little longer, fix the vacuum leak and get a little more suspension work sorted out and get a 12 second time slip then maybe a little more and see where it goes, then do the swap.

Yeah, a turbo too big for the stock combo at that. The engine takes a beating like a trooper though.
