Post Whats my approx. 1/4 time?

Hey guys, i have a 2000 ZX3 with an automatic(DONT bash the automatic). I am going to take my car up to the 1/4 strip starting this May, so I am wondering what my approximate 1/4 times will be with the following mods I have now:
Full length race header; Magnaflow exhaust, and a short ram intake.

I also have a 65mm throttle body, I doubt performance wise it makes any difference. (i just like the throttle response)

I am also going to race 2 of my friends cars at the strip:
2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder (1/4 is 15.6 stock) he only has a short ram intake
1998 Escort ZX2 (1/4 is 15.7 stock) no mods, just some "high performance decals"

Will I be able to take these guys??? They want to race me this summer...

no you will lose to all of them you will run somewhere between 16.3 and 16.7 if your lucky might be higher because of the autotragic

lol autotragic... he was making fun of the automatic transmission...

chad, dont be disappointed if you happen to run a 17somthin in the 1/4. but maybe with a good response time yu can aim for high 16s!

those times really suck, are you sure i wont even get 16 flat???....the only thing I plan on adding soon is a modified valve body for my transaxle, but I dont think it will have much of an impact in the 1/4th(its to prep my atx for future mods)

You won't even be close to 16 flat...

With what I've done I'd shit my pants if I hit 15.5...

Do some suspension work and go autocrossing, it's more fun than driving straight anyway.

well autocrossing is nice but I like drag racing better, I also like the challenge of making a 4 cylinder go fast...
