New to **********

Hello everyone, my name is Jon. Im new to the Turbo Buick scene. Ive owned 3 GN's, 1 Turbo T and 1 Turbo TA. I currently own a 87 GN (stock), 87 WE4 T (modified) and a 89 Turbo Trans Am (stock). I am currently selling the 87 GN but looking to have some fun with the Turbo T. I bought the T-Type off ebay and Im reasonable happy with it. Its not perfect by any means but its a fun driver. Original paint is showing its age but o well. (Supposedly the motor was rebuilt, stock 109 block with forged pistons, stud girdle, ported iron heads, port matched intake, Kenne Bell plenum, 70mm throttle body, Hooker Headers, TE-60 Turbo, MSD 50 LB injectors, billet adjustable fuel regulator with fluid filled gauge. Walbro 340 pump. Tony DeQuick stock location intercooler, Terry Houston Downpipe with cockpit controlled delta gate, LS1 MAF sensor with translator. Pit Bull manderal bent exhaust with pit bull mufflers. $3,600 rebuild on indestructible BRF coded 200R4, trans go shift kit, Kevlar bands, blue clutches, aluminum deep trans pan. 3300 stall 9" convertor. driveshaft loop. GM 3.42 posi rear end, QA1 shocks, tubular lower control arms, fully adjustable billet upper control arms). The car seems to run strong but I havent had it to the track yet. The previous owner said it ran 11.50's at 121 on drag radials. The turbo says Garrett A/R .60 M24, what is that?
Does this sound like a reasonable set up? Is this a 11.50 potential combo? Im clueless to the Turbo Buick Scene any help would be greatly appreciated.

Sounds like a fast set up to me if you can launch it hard and get it to hook. I'm running a TE-44 with methanol injection and was having a 2-3 shift flare having to back off the throttle to get it to shift into 3rd and was pulling 12.12 with a soft launch (2.0 second 60ft time) at 23lbs boost... I'm assuming you have a street and race chip?

11.50 is very doable with that combo. 121mph is an 11.0 with a good 60'
