    Thanks for taking the time guys.

    I drive & modify a couple old audis... Pre much of today's technology including EFI (unitil I put it on, anyway) There is a civic around town, dick kid, daddybought him his car, (already with FI) who's been spouting off about low 12 second 1/4 times with his car.

    ...Im asking you guys whether you think its a realistic time or not. I have no doubt he's repeating what's been told to him. What I do know:

    B16
    T3/T04 Hybrid
    FMIC, Internals strong enough to run 21 psi

    Are these figures enough to run a claimed low 12 second with street tires? I figure a burn through the first two gears, a quick post- 60 foot time, and probably mid thirteens... but Im asking, cause I dont know. What do you guys think?

    Depends what car its in. In a CRX or ED Hatch, thats def a 12 sec car if he can drive and his engine doesn't suck.

    There's a ton of variables that could affect his 1/4 mile time... but as far as if it's possible, considering the vague description that you have, yes. Definitely possible.

    Do you really have the 2.2 RS2 motor?

    Can I have it, along with the standalone?

    Lol

    My EG hatch was defenitly a mid 13 on 10#'s with a 60/48.

    It's very possible that an b16-T SI could run 12's, with slicks.
