are you sure about that time?Teknokid said: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 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.stealth_b13 said:

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

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:Teknokid said: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.
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.Teknokid said: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 dont know how accurate the info on msn.com autos is cause if you look at the compression ratio that they have it is 10.6PatScottAKA99XE said: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
