0-60?

Didnt know if this was the right place or not but.
What do you all think my 0-60 is i have a ghetto
intake and udp. My car is a MTX and i am a good
driver. I have tried to time my self but it is very
hard to get a good time. The last time i did it
i got a 8.48sec. Is that close to what it should be?

sounds about right, but you can never know for sure, gtech would give you a close estimate.

It *supposedly* measures hp, 0-60, 1/8 mi, 1/4 mi, and various other things. I'm rather skeptical of it though. Don't know where to get one. Use google.

Its a device that you put in your car. It tells you your 0-60, 1/8th and 1/4 mile times. Its about the size of a radar detector.
