14.991 @ 94.07 mph

So now I can finally say that my SVT is a 14 second car, if just barely.



Mods are as follows,

AEM CAI
CFM 65mm TB
Taylor Wires
One step colder plugs
RT Hi-Flo cat
Eibach Sportline springs and Pro-Dampers

Tires were General Exclaim UHPs @ 30 psi. ( I was really surprised at how well they did.)

55 degrees Fahrenheit and 41% humidity.

great time, i think you could of done better but you had a terrible R/T, you could of ran a low 14 with a decent r/t. but good times anyways, practice on that and you'll have better times

Wasn't trying to get a good RT. RT has nothing to do with the 1/4 mile time anyway. The clock doesn't start til your tires move.

No tune either. I have Tom's tune but it's not installed. I'm faster without it. Only helps me with drivability and feul economy. Straight line i'm way faster without it.

Beats me. But i know when my car is running good and when it isnt. I had that problem since the first time i loaded it. I even wrote Tom and he sent me a more aggresive tune. It was better but the stock ecu still learns the mods better.

That is a good time, it seems the car responded well to the cooler temps. I live in Norman and wanted to run my car also but with the financial crisis I have been a bit straped for cash. Maybe next time.

The conditions were perfect. Have you run your car before? The JRSC is supposed to put you around mid 14s right?
