I have intake, exhaust, and a tune. I believe matt has all those plus a race header. The svt just isn't geared for a drag strip.

Yeah SD_Focus was right I have intake, exhaust, header, and tune... remember there was no such thing as traction for the ST... Near bald tires just don't cut it at a track that isn't ideal trust me!!!

don' feel bad my chamber is off on my left side so only half the tires grips. you stupid 2.3 l's do so much better with mods than the svt but that is ok. no hating i have gone f/i and not many cars on the forum can smoke me any more, don't get me wrong their are some but not as many as their were.

The vids are working fine for me... I dunno if it was just putfile for a while or if you have to have something installed on your computer to work it.

Well, my best 1/8th on my "old" engine was 10.40 (CAI, Catback only).

That's a diff of .33 seconds.

Figure another .2 or .3 sec. reduction for the 1/4 (and noting that my car was running 16.1 1/4's) ...

And that means you're turning 15.5/15.6 1/4's.

I thought you said that Motor Trend got a 15.7 1/4 out of a totally STOCK ST?

he he ...
ha ha ...
ho ho ...

Well you probably should be remember traction in 1st gear is was non-exsistant... SD_Focus ran a 9.9 with intake, exhaust, and tune and was spinning also... I know the car is capable of turning 14.7-14.8 quarter mile times if the tires weren't bald and there was a decent track around

Firefighters have a saying: "Show me!"

When you get some new rubber, take a 2 hr. drive to a 1/4 mile track and let us know what you run.

Otherwise (on that same token) I could state that because it was hot out when I made my runs ...

That my car is actually a mid 13 sec. scorcher!

LOL

Get motortrend to bring that bone stock ST to this track and see what they run. Several items need to be looked at here. First and foremost, I'm a crappy driver. Secondly, this was the first time driving this car. Lastly, traction on this track sucks balls anyway, is actually slightly uphill, and this was a learning experience, on pretty wore down tires. You're comparing a guy (me) who has drag raced maybe 6 nights in his life in a car he's never sat in to the pros that work for Motortrend. Good job I guess. Motortrend also claims to have gotten a 3.9 second 0-60 in an Evo XIII, but I suppose that's the norm for an Evo as well, right. Show me.
