i think you can get into the 14s with a cam, headers, chip, plugs.
The problem is it hasn't been done yet so there is not going to be proof till someone does it.

So that guy did all the "marginal-if no gain mods" he could think of and got a 13.6 1/4? That seems optimistic.

You just took the lightest year and model and made it slower:

From your own signature. PLUGS AND WIRES DO NOT ADD PEFORMANCE. Get over that.

You are right that a stock GTP runs 15'*, in fact, with a decent driver and good conditions its not uncommon to get 14.5'* out of stock GTP'*, however that is with the supercharged engine and a much lighter car than yours. It makes WAY more torque than your car (really about 80-100ft.lbs, as opposed to the 55ft.lbs. GM claims it is) and ~40 more hp, and it has a very flat power curve. So, if you lighten your car up so it weighs the same or less than a GTP, and add 40+hp and 80+ft.lbs to it, then hell yeah it will run 14'*, however I'd like to see you add that kinda power without some sort of forced induction or lots of money. It can be done, but you'll be spending a lot. There is a guy with a '02 GT in the Michigan GP club that has stock heads, cam, and exhaust manifolds. Yes he has just about everything else under the sun done to his car, but he runs 14.7'* in that. It can be done, but you'll be spending a LOT and you'll have to drop all that aftermarket stereo and wheels that you have as well.

I'll just assume you meant GT.

Ahh...you caught us. We are all blowing smoke up your tail pipe. If you use special iridium plugs that you can only buy from the Ukraine you can run 14'* easy.

Seriously, don't come here and tell us we don't know what we are talking about. A lot of people have worked hard to try and make their cars faster. They have been here a long time and have seen most everything tried. If you ask a question and get an answer you can pretty much bet the farm that what they are saying is true. You have a few options to get faster.

1) Car or Motor Swap
2) Cam, headers, converter
3) Turbo
4) Nitrous

To my knowledge none of these have been done on a 95.
