I have been racing my Bullitt up at our local dragstrip. When I say "up at" - I meen it. The track is at an elevation of apprx. 4000 feet.

I seem to get a different story from just about everybody there. Some say take off a half second, others say 3/4 to even a full second, and yet others say it's not gonna really affect you.

What do you all think? My Bullitt has never ran better than a 14.58 at 96.5mph. There was a brand spankin' new Cobra there tonite who did not do much better (14.1).

Multiply the time by .951 and the speed by 1.0521.

Your time would be:
13.865 @ 101.527

There is ALOT of information out there to explain the effects of density altitude on engine performance and aerodynamics, however this site has the NHRA calculations.

Great run!

You lose 3% HP for every 1000 feet od elevation.
