Mods on cat were Cossi Cold Air, Flex back exhaust, B\S and KW2 tires.

On a 2.0L yeah you will have to do alittle more to the car to get to the 14s but a fullt built N/A will do LOW 14s high 13s easy.

But with your set up that time seems good and more launching practice will get you down a couple of tenths
Wow, thats pretty impressive, my best time in my 2.3Duratec was a 15.9, with Cossy Intake, Draxas header, exhaust, but i was running on my heavy 17 inch wheels and i have an auto, but a full second better than me with out a header is impressive.

Definitely impressive. What track? I'm assuming in MD?
MIR is supposed to be fantastic, and sea level!
Mason Dixon is my second "home" track, but I haven't raced there since I owned my 03 Mach 1.

Sea level and good air will do wonders for a car! I took my Thunderbird to the Oregon coast loaded with a bunch of camping gear. I weighed it at 4250 lbs and it felt as fast or faster at sea level than It ever did with a race weight of 3700 at my track. With a better 60 ft time you will be looking at a mid to low 14 second car and that's pretty good for a FWD street car.
