I was a little slow on the startup. I was going to stop at 60 but I said to hell with it and kept going.

Ahh ok... It seemed to be a hair over 8.5 seconds.

Should be similar to mine (stock with CAI and cat)

Although I think I could've done better. Maybe I'll address it at the meet...

Yeah I just noticed your mileage. There can be alot of variables that reduce performance.

TONS of things can be. EVERYTHING At that mileage and to the best of my knowledge, you haven't done a full tune up yet, thats expected.

You need to check off the following:

Plugs
Wires
Cat Condition/Exhaust Backpressure
PCV
Fuel Filter
Air Filter
Oil

Those are your basics that will make or break a car. None of them really cost that much money, the cat being the most expensive, then Wires, then from there, its all cheap.

Check Plugs, Air Filter, and oil.

PCV is the valve thingy right? I can't find the damn thing! easy to see on my old buick regal though

I'll go kick the cat later today.

I'll get a how to on the Fuel filter and the plug wires at the meet.

Although the o2 sensor could be up to no good. bosch. *shivers*
