My time

I ran a 15.8 at 85 before I installed the JWT cams and the ported cylinder head. I need to get an alignment and take it back to the track.
You do run the 1/8th whenever you run the 1/4 ;)

Anyway my 1/8th mile time ont he 15.8 run was 10.060 at 67.92

Judging by those times, doesn't it bother you that you ran 0-60 in around 9 seconds still after all the work you've put into it?
UMMMM, no. Those were numbers before the cams and head work. 15.8 is a very respectable time for a GA16 car. It is even quicker than that now.

As for me, there are much better things in a car than 0-60. Linear powerband that is usable when road racing and autocrossing. That is my goal, not sub 5 second 0-60 times.

I always have the S2000 for that.
Yes it is part of that. I guess the point I'm trying to make is I started with a car that wasn't fast to begin with. For as slow as it is from the factory, id' say I/WE have made some decent gains.

Yeah no doubt, sorry it sounded like I was saying your work wasn't worth it. I'd never say that. Your car is great, especially considering my car is like half of yours... I was just pointing out something that's all.

No offense taken and thanks for the kind words.
