But I tell you when I floor it now it picks up real quick. I'm pretty sure I can get 8 to 9 secounds now.

New motor mounts make the car feel different, not faster. Its placebo......

I guess your right. This is was my first main car I ever drove. Used it for the dmv test. So yeah after using it all this time and then getting the motor mounts.. It felt like a new car! I never got to drive the car when it was new. I remember the day I went with my dad to the dealer to buy it though. It was one of those "lost liter" special cars (10k brand new). This car was light-years ahead of the little 95 ford escort we had, the only thing advanced on that car was the automated seat belt contraption.

That's pretty true in the 1/4 mile, but speeds are usually closer to 100 mph for your average semi-performance car.

So I would say 6/10 of a car length in a 0-60 test.

I see a good tune really helps 2nd gear. And I would almost bet money that with a tune you barely touch a 16.5 to the OP.

Hm... I dont know actually.

I took your tuned sedan vs my stock (stealth intake mod is all) and got these results.

20-60 for you = 5.74
20-60 for me = 7.45

Now these times are not perfect, just a representation. Things not considered in this study are: Air temp, level of ground, air density, weight, wheels tires, ect. PEOPLE USE THIS SIMPLY AND ONLY FOR ENTERTAINMENT PURPOSES.
