Not really. It might put you in the mid 15 second range, but rockers only do so much, and the rims and such. What you need is Ported and Polished heads for more airflow because its N/A, it has to work for the airflow and the easier it is to draw it in the more you can get. I am probably going to go for the Thrasher P&P Heads and Comp Cam w/ hardended pushrods. Should give about 300 hp at crank with those.

Yes there is a supercharger kit for the GPGT that we can fit on our cars most likely but will require some modifying. If you look at the shaft for the CSC it uses the Engine Bracing in the front of the engine compartment, you would have to recreate those or something similar to hold up the shaft between the CSC and the accessories. And plus our oil pan is cast aluminum rather than the GP'* stamped steel, easier to drill through for the oil return line from the CSC. But having a very effcient N/A is better to get first then adding forecd induction so you get maximum benefits from it.

Well I hang with a Intake/Exhaust/Chip VR6 Jetta on the FWY and they are supposed to be about 15.5 stock. I have the mods listed below so who knows. I agree with boseman350, its about real races, not funky numbers from the manufactures.

Well once I used racing fuel and did a 9 sec 1/4 and then the aliens took me away I will never drink that racing fuel again. LOL

Anyone ever find out all the different weights for different years. I think the 1995 stats are BULL. I have one and if I push this tranny past granny it will blow. I know my front quarter panels are plastic but I think all Bonnies have that. So anyone know the weights corresponding to each year?

To figure out the weight of you car just look on the driver side door. You will see a total weight I think its GVWR. Take that and subtract that by how much the tires max load is, something like 1000 lbs. And that is the weight of your car stock.

I don't know...I have an idea that the person who owned the car before me might have chipped it, because it dosn't shut off when it'* supposed to (the speed limiter)
So that'* why you need high octance fuel! Because of the aftermarket chip. Makes sense now. A NA Bonneville cuts off around 108mph BTW, if yours doesn't than it'* definitely not stock..

i'm shooting for 450hp.............. AT THE WHEELS.

It should actually be pretty easy. Its going to cost around $5000 in engine mods, but hey, its worth it.

The only way you will get 450 hp to the wheels is with a built forged engine, blown and with great tuning so it doesnt blow up. And the odds of you finding a great tuner for our cars is nil since noone does these cars in person.
