Scott'* 2000 SSEi runs 11 sec 1/4 miles.

That car must weigh nothing to get times like that with only 214tq

I guess that'* wheel hp and tq. Not bad. What would be the hp and tq at the crank?

Those are good times. Stock SC Bonnes run the 1/4 in mid 16'* to 15'*, depending on the year.

10k and still not met, ehhh its getting kind of high. He is trying to get money back from his mods. Remember buy the car, not his stuff he put on because that does not sell the car, there is no option in KBB for subs or quarter mile times

Guys, I seriously doubt if he was wondering whether or not to buy the car. Just wanted to know if this was good for a car this modded out. I say it'* rather impressive for a 2.5L V6, even turbo'd.

pay half as much for an ek hatch and it could potentially be faster than a trbd contour

the hell? So little hp yet so good 1/4 mile time? What are stocker numbers for a Contour SVT? Seems fishy. Such a small difference between 5 and 8psi?

Remember that'* wheel hp and tq. I don't know what the percentage of tq/hp loss is on those cars, but the crank hp and tq could be close to 300, or more.
