    Hi guys,

    ok this is my problem: I have a 1994 EG6 sir2 with a b16a. Mods: CAI
    The first time we (me and my buddy) went to the dragstrip with the car it put down the best ET of 16.02, the second time (one month later) we went it put down 16.20 best ET. A mechanic said to us it is supposed to go in high -to mid- 15, and told us that the clutch was the problem. Recently we replaced the wornout clutch/pressure plate with an exedy stage one. Everything looked to be ok while running on the streets, spinning it tires in 1st and second gear like easily. But when we went to the strip last saturday its best ET was 16.60. we were running street tires at 20psi and launching between 5000-6000. Some fellow racers said it the timing but before removing the distributor we marked it, to put it back precisly where it used to be. Our Vtec worked fine!

    WHAT COULD BE OUR PROBLEM, PLEASE HELP!!

    air temp and track temp have a lot to do with ETs. If the tires arent sticky enough or the air is too hot your ETs are going be lower. Probably nothing to do with the clutch, its probably just slower shifts, bad launches or air temp. My ETs in the winter drop drastically....but so does everyone elses.
