60' - 2.875
1/8 - [email protected] MPH

the next stage will be to get new motor mounts and inserts along with suspension upgrade and new exhuast (i have holes in my current one:()...

Thats what, a 18 second 1/4 mile?
i'm not to sure...but i wasn't expecting anything good...all motor mounts are tore up, and everything is stock and original with ~137,000 miles on it...i couldn't get a good launch to save my life (hence the shitty 60' times)...i just wanted a base line of what this car did as is when i picked it up...from here will come new mounts, suspension, exhuast, and what not this year...i'll propably wait until next year for new suspension though...

Holes in your exhaust could mess up the flow and lower your hp. Keep us updated though.
maybe, but i'm not to concerned...i'm getting a new exhuast this year along with new mounts and inserts for them...that will be my first step in modifications for this car...fix with upgraded parts what already broken first ;)

you'll have to excuse the n00b question but does ROI mean?

and yes i'[ll get to see what each mod increases, and with that said i'll be doinga product review over each item I add to the car...

[email protected] MPH... I've seen worse. Is it an auto or stick? Yeah your 60's are garbage... no offense. They should at least be down around 2.5-2.6.
Practice, practice, practice... Good luck in the future.

i'm driving a manual...and yea, i agree totally the 60' times are indeed garbage, but like i said i coud not get a good start to save my life, more or less i was unabe to drop it from more than 2500 RPM at the light...so more or less the next thing before i go back is to fix the wheel hoping issues, and then see what i can get...
