People talk smack about them, but anyone with some basic mods will be running it in the high 13's. Add a head/cam kit and you're in the mid-12's (assuming you're hooking/severity of your cam...ect). Then add anything else and you're looking even better.

But yeah, the video is absolutely an older V8. But that doesn't take away too much because it's fun to beat a car with at least 3 more liters of engine. Haha!
-2000 ZX3- All stock except for the exterior tweaks. Forgive my lack of focus knowledge. Former Z28 owner. If i helped you or you're bored, you can +rep me if you want.
