Talking Piedmont: SVT vs THE IMPORTS

Took my SVTf down to Piedmont dragway today to see what i could do.... At first I was a bit skeptical about putting her on the 1/8th mile track when everyone down there were built up street/strip muscle cars, and a well built supermassive turbo mustang 5.0 that was callin out guys on bikes, but then a gang of about 8 or 9 hondas pulled in and got in line to race so i had to pull up.

First Run.... SVTf w/ AEM CAI and BORLA CatBack vs B16 civic eg hatch with intake & full exhust ( AKA strate pipe to a fart can) Me: 10.378 @ 69.76mph Honda: 10.728 @ 68.05mph

Second Pass.... Me vs Del Sol with a B18 swap (intake & exhaust on it) Me: 10.447 @ 69.62mph DelSol: 10.737 @ 66.14mph

There was a bunch of others too runnin with slower times than me, includin a newer civic SI and a VW Golf R32 that i was out runnin....and they had some funny guy that was an announcer sayin that none of them imports could run a lil focus ...SVT was shuttin them down...lol

Quick question though.... are these good time for a pretty much stock SVTf on the 1/8th mile

Good job man, but are you sure that the vw was an R32? Those guy tend to run in the 9's here in stock form. I would have to say though, I drove my friends and it's not that easy to launch ,until you get use to it.

there not???? ohh, well i guess it was an actual kit for it with a fairly good sized turbo, but the front mount actually looked like the stock FMIC from an EVO, maybe it was just a pieced together home grown frankenturbo car that was untuned and not very well engineered.... who cares he was still slower that me!!!!
