Jeez Bob... that thing looks really strong. I don't feel like mine could ever get up to speed that fast on an Intense PCM and stock tranny.

I know, i watched that a few times and it made me wonder. That things seems to get up to 60 pretty decent. I wish there wasnt any snow, i would like to do a 0-60 of mine.

I'm curious to see what a 0-60 would be like while powerbraking and better pavement. I honestly feel it'd be under 8.

I dunno, i know mine is very strong 0-60 but i dont think you would be too far behind. I hate when it is cold out like this, i can not get any traction under 40. Even with my new goodyear ultra grips, they spin at anything WOT in first lol. You ever been to the track?

Cold = happy engine, sad tires. I've never been to the track. I'm waiting to get an SSEi before I do that, but I'd definitely be curious to see what it'd run. I'd be VERY happy if it broke into the 15'*.

I dont see why it wouldnt be 15'*. It looks pretty strong. LOL about the ssei comment, bring on a stock ssei, my little L36 wants them to try it . I know my next time at the track i am going 14.7-14.9. Then a few more mods and i am ready for a 3.4" ssei.

Going back to that first pic then....do you guys think that looks normal? I'm just surprised that a plug that still looks to be OK and has only a slightly larger gap can have that big of an impact.

Here is an interesting link.

Your plugs look really good seems odd that new plugs made a huge difference. Do you use a dielectric grease on both ends of the plug wires to ensue good connectivity?
