This wednesday I'll be taking my car to the strip to get a few runs in while it's still stock. I'm HOPING to break 16 seconds, but I probably won't. I'll be there with a couple friends... one has a '00 Jetta that's pretty heavily modified and runs mid-14's. The other is a '98 Prelude that's stock and runs high 15's. There may be videos...there may be pictures...there may be nothing but a follow-up post; I can't promise anything.

If anybody would like to donate a supercharger or turbo there WILL be pictures and videos

If you get every shift right and perfect you will get a 15.7 like i did. And thats what the car is supose to do. I took it to a local 1/8th mile track and i ran a 10.084 so i think now i might be able to run a lil better in the 1/4 due to some other stuff done to my car. But you should do fine.

You did not have your car going 130 or 135.....the speeedometer is mighty unstable at those speeds, the computer stops your car from going faster...it is not a point of it working or not...

Same here. 127. That's all there is without reflashing the ECM.

Be careful at Sac Raceway. They matched me against a red line a M3 a Sti heavily modified (533hp dyno sheet to prove it) and a 12psi turbo 01 prelude. It wasn't pretty and if you get a good reaction time you should be able to hit mid 15's if you hesitate it will be more like low 16's. It's a nice track but the the compition is brutal. I'm going in the next few weeks so maybe I'll see you there.
