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.
SVT has shit gearing for an all motor car, great gearing for a turbo car especially 1-2. Now that I re-read the thread I realize you have a 2.0L, I have to agree I don't think 14's are possible unless you strip the car and even then.
