streetfocus Maybe it really doesn't add that much. I was thinking for about half the price of a turbo I could reliably hit 14s, but maybe the turbo is worth the extra cost....

streetfocus Really? I did 16.0 with just a couple of bolt-ons. I was thinking I could drop 1 second off by adding cams, head, header and lighter wheels. Add an LSD to the mix and still no? Anybody have all the bolt ons and run a D20?

14.7's are possible with bolt ons, tune, stripped, and a 75 shot... seen that done. but busting high/mid 15's maybe with just bolt ons.

Ooh, sneaky edit.
I assumed when he mentioned 14's he had a 2.3 and I was like, yeah I think that's doable considering the extra whp, then I re-read the thread and say 2.0L and said hell no.

Those bolt-on mods will net you less than 30whp for a grand total just shy of 150whp.

Weight reduction would be the biggest factor but I still don't see it happening. Low 15's maybe, if you slam the gears hard enough, or maybe skip breakfast that day.

Oh, it is also worth noting that since you have a 2008, your car will be inherently slower than 2009 and newer models due to a different final drive gear.

Wow, yeah Motortrend says 2,588lbs for the base model Coupe S. I stand corrected. That's still heavier than my car with me in it and a full tank of gas. lol
