I'm finally back from Texas. After 7 months of Tech School from for the Air Force, I can finally drive my 87 GT again!!!
2 questions.

1) What are some good street/strip tires? I had bfgoodrich comp t/a's which gave me an awesome 1.774 60ft times in a 13.35 sec car. but they wear out quick if you drive them everyday.

2) I hate that awful whining noise from the power steering pump, and know that it drops my 1/4 mile time by 4 tenths if i use a shortie belt. What has anybody done/heard about converting to a manual rack? (i.e. Flaming River, TRW, etc...) I've heard pros and cons.

Thanks
