I've always thought high 15'*, maybe mid 15'*.

I ran a 15.5 with a 2.4 60' in a $600 stock '92 SSEi. I did have some weight reductions and good track prep tho. If I could of gotten a better 60', I would of hit low 15'* - factory freek maybe? But I'd say unless you can get a really good 60' your going to be high 15'*.

there are more advancements in the 94 engine, but without weight reductions and a track prep. the 94 should be faster in STOCK form

Your 1992 SSEi has 205 HP and 260 lb ft of torque stock (which I'm sure you knew) and the 1994/1995 SSEi was upped to 225 hp and 275 lb ft due to a different TB and teflon coated M62 rotors, and a couple other small updates (and downgrades like a .35" larger SC pulley).

Yeah, I'd say that a 1994 SSEi in stock form (the same form that was used when the magazine'* tested them new) would probably be around 15.6-15.75, maybe even as low as 15.5 with a good solid 2.2 60', and temps around 70*F. Mph should be 87-89 mph.

There are absolutely no differences between the 93 and the 94/95 SSEi Engines or Transmissions. Only the TB and different (more efficient) blower revision, that requires fewer rpm'* to develop the same boost level....hence the larger pulley.

I never said or meant to implied that a stock '92-'93 is going to be faster then a '94-'95. The only reason that I ran the time I did was because of weight reductions and great track prep. The engine was stock but in no way am I trying to say that the car was in stock (showroom) form.

Where was I off in saying what I did:

It sounds like we are saying the same thing?! A 15.6-15.75 is on the verge of being a high 15 and with a good 60' (2.2), mid 15'* are possible. .1 in your 60' is going to relate to .2 in th 1/4 mile. So lets say you ran a 15.8 with a 2.4 60'. If you got that down to a 2.2' (-.2 in the 60') that would of been .4 in the 1/4 mile. (15.8 - .4 = 15.4) - it is quite possible to run a mid 15. (If I did my math correctly )
