What's it take to get these cars to trap 100mph in the 1/4 - 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)

Cheers,
It also costs $4k+ and you'll need supporting mods such as a $2k+ tranny to go along with it. I also don't know about the 115mph traps with an SSEi, but it might be the case, never seen one on a Bonnie. (I don't think there are any)

Somebody has to be the first

Well, money IS definately an issue, so no turbo for Joe, lol. I figure I'll just stick to the basic mods for now (that is when money even allows that!). Thanks for all the great info on this subject guys, keep it comin'!

Joe.

I wouldn't say just a high flow cat is going to get you .3 tenths and 3mph.....that'* like 30HP I went [email protected] with a PCM, 3.4, FWI.......I would say if I got rockers and PEM'* I'd be close to trapping 100mph.

While I agree with you that a high flow cat won't do nearly that, I was surprised to see a 2 tenth & 1mph gain in the 1/4 by removing the cat in both my Lumina and my dads '90 Turbo GP. A 3.4 pulley and intake should put the car in the 14.6 range to begin with. High flow cat might give it a 1 tenth gain but not much more than that. The SSEi in my sig ran the times in my sig with 2 people in the car, a shitty launch, and the mods in my sig minus the rockers, DHP, and no cat. Feels like a very low 14 second car to me.

Look my sig.

Those time were mine, except for 13.8- 13.9


I got from 14.9 to 14.6 with my high flow cat and gained 2mph.
..may be it was clogged

The first run i made with the high flow cat was 14.8 (the car was hot)
i let her cool down for 1 hour, and then i did [email protected] mph

one week later, after letting the car cool down again, i got my PB of [email protected] mph

So it wasnt a coincidence. I just need my PCM now
