For what its worth. Via an in car GPS based tracking application.

I was able to pull a 0-60mph in 6.0sec flat ( with moderate wheel spin in 1st ) and a 1/4 mile in 15.0sec @ 91mph .. ( forgot to take traction control off, can probably pull off 14.8sec on a good launch )

Both runs were done with 1/4 tank of gas 89 octane. Its also pretty chilly here. 45*F at the time of testing.

The traction control killed me. Soon as 1st grabbed and the tires started to spin a bit, it killed my power :| I'm thinking, a clean launch and having traction control off, the car should pull high 14's all day.

Every 100 lb. off the car is a tenth off the time. With the setup you have you should be already in the 14's. What's your MPH and 60 foot time??

I'm using an Android application ( speed view )

It triangulates your location via gps satellites and so far seems pretty accurate, I usually have it finding and locking on up to 7 at any given time. As soon as it detects the car isn't moving. It allows you to click ( record 1/4 mile time ) than as soon as it detects any movement (literally down to a cm) it starts to record up to 1320ft. Gives your time/speed.

My run last night, with 3/4 tank of gas an my finance' in the car. I pulled 15.0 sec @ 92mph. ( no crazy clutch drop, because these stock all season give out WAY too easy. I did maybe a 2k clutch slip ) Im sure if I had better tires, and no one else in the car, I could shave it down a few more tenths of a second.

My app is free and doesn't require the purchase of a bluetooth OBDII dongle. So if someone is just looking for 60mph times and 1/4 mile times. The freebee SpeedView app should work just fine.

Not saying your application wont work, but importmonkey did inquire with what application I was using. ;)

I wonder just how accurate these things are. And for those of you that pulled a 15 1/4 mile are you manual or auto? Same for the 0-60.

Just ordered an Injen SRI, hopefully that will nudge me down into the 14's with a proper launch :) although I might be limited to these cruddy tires.. we'll see.

When you do get the intake please do this on the drag track. It whole different experience and plus safer too.
