I'm not too sure what kinda power is needed to run x.xx in the 1/4 but i figure anywhere in that range should make the car a little more fun so that was my shotgun guestimate for where i wanted to be

I have Cranes #224-0010,Fwerk's header,BSD,UDP's,steeda's sri,Denso's iriduim plugs & a Fwerk's tune & I can get over 35mpg blowing down the freeway. I do like the 0012's but this is my DD & I've had more than my share of cammed up cars. They're awesome over 45-5000rpm, but not really DD style. The crane cams really make a difference.
