Need help...opinions please.

I need opinions as to what I will run with my new setup. I am hoping to be in the low 13 to high 12 on motor, and a second faster on nitrous. Where do you think I will be with this setup,

Car: '88 GTA, L98, 700R4, Borg Warner 9 bolt, 3:27

Motor: Stock bottom end, TPiS Miniram, WP Torquer heads, LT4 hotcam kit w/1.6 roller rockers, BBK 58mm tb, K&N conical filter, ported MAF, Hypertech tb airfoil, 180* stat, Hypertech cool fan switch, !A/C, SVO 24lb injectors, new timing chain and gears.

Ignition: MSD 6a, MSD Pro Billet distributor, MSD coil, Accel 8.8's, A/C Delco's

Tranny: 700R4 w/3000 TCI conveter, B&M shift kit, B&M servo, B&M power clutch pack, Flexlite tranny cooler

Tuning: TPiS prom. Custom burned for my application..only time will tell

Exhaust: Edelbrock TES headers, !cat, 3"Flowmaster American Thunder cat-back

Power Adder: NX 150hp Wet kit.

Suspension: Eibach sportlines, KYB shocks and struts, Matco sfc's, Lakewood adjustable panhard bar, Sphon LCA's, Sphon LCA brackets

Traction: Nitto 555R's

All fluids will be Royal Purple. 10W30, Ice coolant, etc...

My race track is at sea level. And temps are usual in the 30's..or 80's American. I have done nothing to save weight, I want a pure street car. And anything that I haven't listed is stock.

Thanks.

I'm not a racer, but your goals should be within reach judging by your upgrades. BTW- are you the same speed88 that replied to a thread of mine over at f-bodytech?
