I just ran mine today, and the best was a 15.42 @ 88.79. That is completely stock minus air filter. 94 SSEI fully loaded. Three other runs were:
15.74 @ 87.97 (Also minus air filter)
15.84 @ 86.68 with air filter
16.03 @ 86.53 with air filter

Hopes this helps!

What were the other conditions? Temperature, what fuel was used (92 I guess or more?), anything else is handy as well. And it'* typically better to average your times than use the best.

A better idea like if you have this option add approx this weight. Also ideas to drop weight in your Bonneville for better gas mileage and more performance.
Hmmmmm....we could probably pull this off. Maybe accurate to +/- half second or so. Shouldn't be too hard. The problem here is everyone is either slightly to heavily modded, and most have high miles. That all has to be figured in, too, but we could come up with something close.

I agree with tthe averaging thing. Actually the worst time is probably more representative of a "street" time. Pulled straight in and ran it off the street. The two fastest times included pulling the air filter and allowing time for the engine to cool off, and not running it in the staging lanes. No other prep though. However I think it should have gone faster, since on the worst run in never got over 5 pounds of boost, even at higher rpm. I think I got a bad tank of gas, since it was detonating like mad, even after adding octane booster.

The temp was about 70 degrees, with a 5-10 mph tail wind. Fuel was 91 octane i guess, and the tires are nothing to write home about

if you wanna knock a few 1/10 * off your time , try putting a bag of ice on the supercharger before you run, i have seen this take a 2000 grand am 3.4 from 16.1 down to a 15.7 and then backed it up with a 15.74.
god knows the power of ICE

But you can't put a bag of ice on your car on the street. You are cheating yourself by doing that.

I am unsure nowadays. Problem is that the closest track LACR (Los Angeles Country Raceway) is 2700ft elevation but the conditions are typically horrible. Good traction but there is always a head wind of 10mph, heat, and more. And a N/A engine really gets killed there unless you spin past 7k-9k range where you still get the */C effect like imports get. Also I switch stuff on my car for R&D so often I really can't tell. Last time I was there I ran a 16.5-16.6 at the 2700ft elevation with my intake and exhaust. That'* it. Corrected its around 1 second off, so 15.5 or so. But I have alot more modifications so who knows.
