mid 14s isnt out of the question...

i ran low 15s with a stock tune and completely stock car.

since then ive done:
cold air
exhaust
high flow cat
tune
all 3 motor mounts

gimme a few passes i think ill break 14s easy. by the end of the day 14.6-7 is doable.


and pumpkin im thinking about it for a DD
