Sooo I went to the strip the other day....



Some how i'm very dissaponted. I have a 02 auto spi and the best time i could get was 18.02 and thats wit racing fuel, magnaflow exhaust, no filter. Even tho i got owned like 6 times I still had tons of fun. That pic was my last race and basically i got the best time. lol I think it's time for an upgrade in cars.

Jon can race you now and you'd still win

But seriously, race fuel isn't going to do anything without tunning. Just because you have it, your computer isn't tuned for it, so you just basically wasted it. Second you have a stock Auto. You aren't going to do much with that either. You'd need a tune and some more modifcations to see a consistant better times.

So you ran the car with no air filter? That's a smidge bit dangerous and virutally serves no gains. You'd need an aftermarket intake and you'd see better gains than just without the air filter.

That's pretty good for an Auto SPI. I've seen Auto Zetecs run about the same time. So that ain't too shabby, but with more mods you'd do a hell of a lot better.

Yeah it would've been so much better wit a tune but even tho i wasnt running a tune it still felt a lil bit more responsive but not too much. I ran wit my k&n the first couple of times and I ran 18.34 and 18.25 and then i took out the filter and haha i got 18.02. It also got colder at the end so that might've done something towards my lower time
