I ran a 9.2 second 1/8 mile at my local track. All i have is a POP charger, 17 wheels. Do you think I can run faster times if I put stock 14's?? what about 13's??
are you sure about that time?

it seems too fast for just a por charger since i have seen SR20DET powered cars running 9.5

are you sure your not thinking 1/4 mile instead of 1/8 mile. just wondering. i think the stock ga runs like 19sec 1/4 mile. so 1/8 mile times should be about half that. but, i could be wrong.

No, 9.2 in the 1/8 mile is really fast for a GA16. I doubt that's correct. More likely 11.2 with those mods.

oh well guess i was wrong. i have very little experiance with actual track racing (all mines on the street) so ive never seen the times for my own car. thanks for setting me strait

Actually I ran a 9.4 1/8 mile. I ran a 17 second 1/4 mile. I was racing against a 94 Ford Escort. his engine was weaker than mine. Apparently they only have 88 hp stock. He had a cold air intake, muffler, pacesetter headers and nology wires. If you dont believe me, go to the Irwindale Speedway on thursday nights down here in southern cali. Its $10 to get in, and another $10 to race all night.

Well, 9.4 still sounds unrealistic unless you slowed down quite a bit for the second half. I'm certainly not calling you a liar, but I do question those numbers. I just did some searching using Google.com and found the following formula:

1/4 mile ET = 1/8 mile ET * 1.5832

Based on that, 9.4 for a 1/8 mile ET works out to be 14.9 for 1/4 mile ET. There's no way a near stock GA16DE with heavy wheels is that fast. For some more numbers (which I can't vouch for, but have no reason to dispute) take a look at sentra.net. Wes has the quickest GA16DE car in the timeslip registry with a 15.8 ET for the 1/4. His 1/8 ET is just under 10.1.

Perhaps Irwindale Speedway made a mistake? Your 1/8 and 1/4 ET numbers simply don't add up.

You cant soley base it on a mathematical equation. You cant really say all cars are the same. Say a Honda Civic, Nissan Sentra, Toyota Corolla, and Dodge Neon all ran a 10 sec 1/8 mile. Can you honestly say they would all run the same 1/4 mile?? I dont think so, there is more to it than that.

I'm not claiming I'm correct, but it takes a whole lot more horsepower than your car is making to run a 9.4 in the 1/8 mile. I'm basing my argument on the mathematics in my previous message and what others have run with the same car. For an example of what it takes to run mid 9s in the 1/8 mile with a B14, take a look at this message. Your car would probably be running in the 14s (1/4 mile) with that kind of 1/8 mile ET, unless you threw out an anchor halfway down the track to wind up with a 17 1/4 mile ET. And yes, that does apply to a Corolla or Neon as well. The numbers will be slightly different, but not by 2+ seconds. Physics remains the same regardless of vehicle brand.

Ok, now that the mistake has been cleared up, here is an interesting tidbit of info. This info was generated with Virtual Engine Calculator V 2.2. It is really pretty accurate.
For 1996 GXE to hit 9.4 in the 1/8, based on a stock weight of 2460lbs(msn.com autos) it would need 179hp. I think, thats about 140whp. Just food for thought :)

I dont know how accurate the info on msn.com autos is cause if you look at the compression ratio that they have it is 10.6
If i am not mistaken, it is 9.5 Now is that weight for an automatic or a manual.

I know there can be "glitches" with that info, but its pretty close. Close enough for the purpose of my post. I thought it would shed a little light on that misunderstanding, thats all.I found it interesting to know though.

Man, im a stock SE- right now... well, i got my headers, exaust, and intake on the way.. ON thE WAY!... and then i gotta get it put on.. considering i dont have a pipe bending machene, a torque wrench, Or welding machene, i have to let mineke do my exaust,.. But, besides the point,

I eat corollas for lunch.. i dunno abuot new ones, i rarely see racer's driving them..

I've ate many a civic's in my time.. mostly DX's.. maybe like 3 EX's.. but it wasnt from start.. it was from like 20 mPH or so.. and we hit it.. loooooove nissans Long running high RPMS... let me comment on that statement, My car can go from 5000 - 6800 rpms.. and it seems like i can stay in that range for like 4 seconds, and i just gain infainte speed/power, i feel like a damn 9.0 L!hahaha

I've ate 4 accords to date.. and believe it or not.. i swear, i beat a MR2 Turbo (according to him)... well, his badge MUST mean he has turbo right?!?!.. and it was yellow. so.. we all know Yellow + badges = Fast Turbo...

i ahnialted eclipses.. although a few were beeners.. (mini tires), and the rest were all like Bryans car (FATF) just headers, and CAI, and "elleged T-04 turbo!" ahha.. yea.. right.. T-0(FAKE).. let them believe what they will eh? haha

I am a 200SX GTR.. no one can touch me.. cause my badge says i have a skyline engine.. maybe thats why i win all these races.. and loose alot too though.. :(
