Fixxer,

I was @ atco on Friday night and so you run your car. It is like a dark gray color ,right? I even saw you run that 17 something. I think running a 16.5 was a nice job!
I want to run my car but I'm do scared to break something. Maybe I'll run when I get a new CAT in the next few weeks.
I just wanted to give you props for the nice run.
Later

p.s. You looked very young when I saw you cruz by the stands. Did you just get you license?

had it 3wks and your already drag'n...not good....cool out and dont go back til you have 3-5k on it. allow all the stuff to break in (especially clutch, but engine as well).

Looks real good man! You 5 speeds have all the luck; I had to have a k&n drop in and ported stock TB, and gutted hatch to run 10.6 in the 1/8th! Yep, automatic.

Some get down to 16.3's stock. That's not bad though. It means I got like .5-.7 seconds out of an intake exhaust and pulley. The old zetec didn't respond all that poorly to mods i guess.

my best time was a 16.78 and i have a cone air filter clamped onto the maf. so congrats to you, i must suck at driving. i had the spare tire in and 1/4 of 87octane and it was very hot outside. i didnt push my car to the start either.

I ran a high 16.3 with just a k&n drop in.
