Here's someone running a stock '08 SE (heavier) Sedan (heavier) 5spd ..

0-60 in 8.1, 1/4 in 16.5.

There are plenty of slower cars out there, and who knows, that driver might just suck.

CAI + ECU Tune + Exhaust = probably a pretty decent cheap fun car. I'll let you know whenever someone gets the '08 stuff out, but I imagine it'll be just like the 2.0 Duratec tuning for previous models (ie; small but real gains, 10hp here, 5hp there)
