Just ran the 08 Coupe

Ran her at El Paso Motorplex. Being 4700 ft above sea level it ran REALLY SLOW. My best time out of 5 runs was 17.408 at 80.12 mph. Corrected using known factors to sea level the numbers are 16.356 at 85 mph.

BTW I officially hate the elevation here.

16.3 @ 85 is about right on to what i averaged stock in my 07 you will be surprised at what a simple intake and exhaust will do for your car, im right about 10 - 15 feet above sea level aswell lol, a cold air and header, rear seat delete, im now running on average 15.2 - 15.3 @ 90 if your interested in getting those times down a little

yeah I have to say I really like my elevation also. My 15.7 as never sounded so sweet before lol. But after the correction it sounds like your right where you should be. Also the normal mods will help greatly with your times. Good luck

Yea, it felt fine at the track. Never made any wierd sounds except for once. But hey im beating the crap out of it so what can I expect.

But yes, once I do the normal mods I expect quite a big change. From what I have read a header, cat back, cai, and a tune should get me close to low 15's at sea level.

There are no mods done to the car except the lunchbox. Ran a 16.69 at 80 ish mph. My fastest ever. The track is on El Paso and is 5187 ft above sea level. That time corrects to 15.5 in the quarter. For a BONE stock car. Granted I lauched at 7K and powershifted 2 and speed shifted 3rd.. I didnt think it would run that fast.
