Default How do I get a 7 sec 0-60?

I've been sorta thinking about doing some simple modifications, but nothing that'* gonna be a huge risk or potentially cost money down the road (in repairs).

That said, what'* the simplest way to get the car to drop about 1/2 second to a solid 7.0, 7.1, 7.2 sec. 0-60? I'd like to have a solid number to throw around, mainly for peace of mind. I don't forsee any racing or tracks in the future, just normal driving.

Probably intake, exhaust and new PCM, im geussing that would almost drop you down 1/2 a second.

A pulley will help you get there quicker.

Have a look in tech info for first mods, the pulley and intake are cheap and heaps of power.

Take it with a grain of salt, but my best Gtech 0-60 was 6.6 seconds. I'd have to check my more recent runs to see what it is now after my calibrations.

.....going to check.....

Yeah I'd be really curious to see your results...how accurate is the g-tec on the 0-60? Is there a given window of error?
