    umm, estimating times is lame, but if u drive like me and live on the west coast, with that setup u should run 14.2-13.9 maybe a lower. but get cams and cam gears too:OO

    Everyone I've talked to said to expect low 14 - high 13 times. Problem is, I ran at the track tonight and the best managed was a 15.7 I had 2 other people who are good drivers give a try and they got similar times. Something is fucked up in my engine, now I have to find the problem

    sounds like a mad timing issue...

    what ecu are you using? was the ignition light set properly?

    i would guess you could get 14.5 with that setup..

    What do you mean by ignition light?

    I believe the ecu is stock gsr, I will take it out and check

    I did compression test, got 226-225-225-224 psi

    Guess I'll check the timing next

    Try some slicks, some mickey thompsons on a lightweight 15 inch wheel should take 1/3rd of a second, maybe more with the right clutch and launch technique. When you stage pull up the parking brake with your thumb on the button, lift the clutch pedal enough so it engages and all your gears mesh, i rev to about 8000 (where my shift light comes on) then when the green goes dump the clutch and the brake at the same time and you should run a 13 second pass. works everytime for me.

    What was your 60ft times??? and List every mod and weight of your ride??

    You should be able to hit 13's for sure with a good amount of practice.

    sorry, misread the topic, I didn't mean you canadian GSR, but what did you end up running with that low 60ft time though?

    I read two topics at once and split my answer, opps.... :blink: :huh:
