Default First 0-60 Vid

I hope I'm not wasting your time with this but I got bored and decided to shoot a little 0-60 run tonight. Somewhere around 8 as far as I can tell. Only "prep" is about 1/4 tank of gas. Sorry if the quality sort of sucks.

30-60 pull is pretty good, but the SII is lathargic 0-30

Nice Vid!

Dill, your car pulls pretty good, but I have to say after seeing Don'* 95 with a stock PCM, you got some catchup to do. Your car pulls good for what it is, but your vid clearly shows the unrestricted 95 PCM has some major bawls.

Let'* do some porting on your LIM and TB this winter.

stock 95. Before his high-flow cat and ported TB.

Not to take away from you. That'* damn good for a 97, but comparing to a 95 with the 'less constrained PCM", we can see the difference.

Notice the sig. My PCM isn't exactly stock But a good P&P would do nicely on the TB and LIM. I "recently" replaced my UIM with a sleeved unit and LIM gaskets (not Al at the time :( ) back in March with Bill Buttermore so there'* no huge rush to get back down in there. We ended up installing Bill'* smaller stovepipe and prototype sleeved UIM which previously belonged to 57ChevyThunder I believe.
I'm also graduating college in December and this is my only car and I have no garage, yet. The plan is to get a 00+ SSEi and hopefully keep this one. At that point I'd tackle a top end rebuild and new Dorman upper to go with (the UIM on there has a very slight warp at the TB connection). I feel like I have the confidence to get down to the LIM again on my own after seeing the job done, but I'd want another car (and a garage ) as a backup so I wouldn't have to rush anything. I'm still sort of new to the car game, but I'm learning quickly.

Edit - I JUST realized I never turned off my traction control Would that make a difference at all? I still got a little wheelspin as you can tell, but would having the TC on hold any power back?

Curious question....

I was bored and I was comparing vids, I noticed cody'* Bonne was very slightly quicker than yours and cody has a stock PCM and a full tank while you have a quarter tank and a INTENSE PCM. Is cody'* bonne a possible factory freak?

I'm really trying to avoid any bias, but when I used this stopwatch ( http://www.arantius.com/tools/stopwatch ) I was at least 1/2 second faster than any of his vids? I tried to give it an honest effort. I would think 1/2 second is somewhat significant since it'* a relatively short timeframe.

Am I using the wrong video? This is titled "better 0-60"
