What are some N/A 1/4 times and trap speeds? - Page 2 - GM Forum - Buick, Cadillac, Chev, Olds, GMC & Pontiac chat


Performance, Brainstorming & Tuning Talk about modifications, or anything else associated with performance enhancements. Have a new idea for performance/reliability? Post it here. No idea is stupid! (please use Detailing and Appearance for cosmetic ideas)

Currently we are both at 181K on the odometer. Now with the mods He has a little jump, but within about 150 feet I start pulling on him and by the time we get about 1/8 mile I have him by a couple car lengths (2-3) and by the time I hit 1/4 mile he has really fallen way back (about 6-8 car lengths).
With the better airflow in my car I have Alot more power in the high rpms. I finally got my cousin to race me in his 1996 Buick Riviera with the 240hp Series I SC'ed 3800 with only the K&N drop-in I gave him.
He really whooped me on the jump with his traction control on, but once I hit about 30 mph he stops pulling on me and I do actually start catching up to him. From 60-80 I actually inch ahead of him, but very slowly -that'* why I say "inching ahead".
Wow, the Series 2 engine has more torque and HP... wonder why you bet him so bad, especially if he has mods too.

Back when my dad had the 1993 N/A Bonneville, I got a best of 16.281 at 82.11 mph all stock. Cool air, sea level.

If you get the reaction I got then you'll see this a lot . When you eat a few cars up then the reaction is much more like this . It is so much fun.
