I ran a 14.99 in my 2013 vt m/t with just an aem cai and tork pipe.
With a 2.32 60 ft on stock trash kuhmos. Could have def ran a 14.7 with a couple more passes

I just don't get why 13.8 1/4 mile and a 5.2 0-60 seems so unachievable in a VT, after all we are only talking about MILLISECONDS of a difference here. Some of you are a bigger buzz kill than Buzz Killington.

It's not that it's unachievable, it's just that several people have gone down a similar path and were unable to hit those numbers. We'd like to keep expectations realistic or else we'll be going down the path of the unicorn 3rd gear kills we had in the past.

And while the difference seems miniscule, people spend thousands just to shave those milliseconds.

But definitely eager to see slips with those #s.

I wasn't trying to have a pissing contest or prove anything, I was just sharing what I thought to be my current best times and I would like to see what everyone else's current best times were too. Particularly I would like to hear about modded 15s and to see if the best times were any better than previous years.
Anybody with modded 15s going to share??

Actually the new gti's are quicker! But like mentioned above, nothing is more accurate than some track slips! Those cell phone apps are not accurate. Tho the G-tech pro is pretty dam close.

I think that the issue here is that those numbers sound way too good to be true. Heck who knows, maybe you have a factory monster. But the fact that you are using a method other than actual time slips or a dyno sheet will discredit it somewhat. I don't doubt that you are indeed getting those numbers, however I wouldn't rely on them too much. You don't want to get all excited, head to the track only to be let down. LOL

Mid 13s tuned with good sticky tires is definitely doable. All that is required is a good driver. There are a bunch of people who claim it isnt possible and to those people I say prove it. Post YOUR time slips fully bolted and tuned so we can analyze your slips and see how it isnt possible. Otherwise at 2800 pounds and 250-260whp that is perfectly normal.

You should know that a negative cannot be proved with positive results. Only by doing so will the claim

be refuted.

Going down a 3% grade and only showing the speedo is the oldest trick in the book. I think we've all tried that one! Based on my SFR tune Id say these times probably arent too far off. The trap speed just seems quite high and 0-100 in 10s...thats pretty damn fast lol

I say you go full bolt on, get a tune, get dyno'd, take your car to the track and show us that mid 13 time slip.

IDC what people think the car is capable of or what the car should run in theory. People want physical evidence. Let's see those time slips. I know there are plenty of people making 270whp. Post them up and put the guessing game to rest.

I think what you meant to say was proven. Furthermore your comments make absolutely no sense. There are tons of people who make these absurd claims about people being fully modded and tuned and running mid 14s. To those people I say prove it, post your time slip so we can see your 60ft numbers and your trap speeds so we can then determine if the car is incapable or simply the driver. For the most part the people on this forum putting up big numbers don't seem to be drag racers. Also tork himself mentioned that his 13 second pass was a 1 time thing and he never ran it again, insisting that he could have ran a better time.

Followed by others with tune and bolt ons with same 60 and similar quarter miles. I'm saying some are claiming these amazing numbers while others rage quit after clocking lower than expected times.

He also had that giant ass intercooler which prob killed his boost. That thing looked amazing but was total overkill.
Yea that thing was beastly lol... But I'd rather be conservative and be pleasantly surprised than to overestimate and be dissapointed and fall flat on my face.

At those trap speeds of 94 mph 14.6 is right on the money @97mph more like 14.2 but he is the only one, did anybody know his mods aside from the homemade ic! I ran 14.99 on 93shell fresh penzoil ultra, 1422 ngks,aem cai, tork pipe, with the stock trash kuhmos that were fairly used and had i cut a 2.2 i would have put down a 14.6 as well oh i also had a 1/2 tank of gas. I want people with fully bolted tuned cars to post their slips. But anyhow I will be ordering the NST pulley tomorrow and installing my new wheels and tires next month and i will hit the track again see what i come up with.
