Default Low 14'*

Is it possible to reach low 14'*, with only a camshaft upgrade and new rockers? On a N/A engine..?

I think HIGH 14'* is more like it.

Considering that stock time. Shaving more than a second off your ET takes a bit more work than that.

you should be able to get REALLLLLLYYYYY close with cam and rockers .. but without suspension and the PCM mods to back up the new cam and rockers I doubt you'll break into 14'* ...

You'll probably need a very aggressive cam and a lot of tuning to get that low.

Look on CGP to see what some of the GT guys have done.

i would say make everything more free flowing, plus the cam and headers. Rockers would be redundant with a cam wouldnt they?

One need'* to get 1.6:1 ratio adjustable rockers with a cam (generally speaking).
