Running 10.330 in the 8th

Is running 10.330 good for my car i the 8th mile? Its a 05 ZX3. Mods are F2 header, exhaust, stealth intake, and the ECU has been palyed with, Ford racing 1.5 lowering springs. I have some 205/50/15 Neo Gen tires. i have tried launching at diff. RPMS. I have also tried riding the clutch, and just sliding my foot off the clutch. The car runs mid 10's most of the time. I have adjusted the psi in the tires from 40psi down to 30psi. Not sure what else to try...More mods. to the car is not an option at teh moment. Thanks for the advcie....

That sound a little off cause my 03 with Flexback,CAI,Dogbone and strutbar ran a 10.68 in the best run with those mods, and to be honest it was 95 out street tires 40psi and the tires spun barked and hoped half way through 2nd gear. So i would say if your 60' was any better then mine i should be blowing my 8th out the water no problem. What was the 60'?

2.3 is the 60 foot.....I wouldnt say it if it wasnt true and i didnt have the proof....If I post a time or speed i will have the slip to show...I have run that same time twice with my car. That was before the header and exhaust. Now with the header and exhaust the best i can get is a 10.4s I do understand you questioning it. I have looked at other times on here with close to the same mods as me and it seems i run a little faster than most. I thinking its where the tracks at maybe?

"ecu has been played with" how so? 205/50/15 is like a 23inch tall tire id try slipping the clutch from about 4000ish rpm to work on getting that 60' down, seat time is the most important thing to make your car faster.

Little bit off topic but with a stock zetec and a good driver wahat kind of 60' should you be pulling? My best was 2.49 but it was the first fime ever at the track and I never made it back with out any mods.
