Default 1996 SE 1/4mile time

Hey guys ran my car with the new g-tech pro best time was a 15.8 at 85.6mph.
I thought that this was impressive for a stock bonneville. Just thought id let you guys know.

really... There is one thing i have in my car not sure if it makes that much of a difference but its that tornado thing. Friend had it in his truck and sold his truck he just gave it to me. I got the car last teusday i put it in on the wednesday. So didnt have much time to play around with the car to see if it made a difference

Get rid of the tornado, its only hurting you. Our cars require laminar air flow not turblent like what the tornado will do. Try doing a search for tornado and see what pops up. I'm serious that thing is only hurting you.

Yup, out with the tornado and in with the cold air intake. You'll notice a vast difference and possibly .1 -.2 shaved from the 1/4. Plus it'* sound fool as cuck.

yeah those things can really hurt your car, buddy of mine had one on a 1999 bonneville and it started acting funny until finally he removed it.

While on the subject of tornado'* and such.

I was just on car domain and this one kid with a bonne said that he removed the screen in the TB. The one (probably only one) where the air intake hose (pipe) comes in. Anyone here done that?

Keep in mind I am kinda nub when it comes to cars
