Well, my best 1/8th on my "old" engine was 10.40 (CAI, Catback only).

That's a diff of .33 seconds.

Figure another .2 or .3 sec. reduction for the 1/4 (and noting that my car was running 16.1 1/4's) ...

And that means you're turning 15.5/15.6 1/4's.

I thought you said that Motor Trend got a 15.7 1/4 out of a totally STOCK ST?

he he ...
ha ha ...
ho ho ...
Get motortrend to bring that bone stock ST to this track and see what they run. Several items need to be looked at here. First and foremost, I'm a crappy driver. Secondly, this was the first time driving this car. Lastly, traction on this track sucks balls anyway, is actually slightly uphill, and this was a learning experience, on pretty wore down tires. You're comparing a guy (me) who has drag raced maybe 6 nights in his life in a car he's never sat in to the pros that work for Motortrend. Good job I guess. Motortrend also claims to have gotten a 3.9 second 0-60 in an Evo XIII, but I suppose that's the norm for an Evo as well, right. Show me.
