Default Is this worth a 14.1?

Stock '97GT vert 5-speed ran a best of 14.89ET

It now has MAC CAI, MAC subframes, Mac Pro-Chamber, Flowmaster exhaust and 3.73's.

Is a 14.1 possible with these mods?

I dont know, improving 8 tenths is a tough thing to do. The CAI, prochamber, and flows gave you maybe 15hp. There's about a tenth and a half right there. Now you're at a 14.75 or so. The 3.73's will give you 2-3 tenths, we'll say 3, so now you could pull a 14.45. I'm not one to be pessimisstic, but I'd say there's no way you could run a 14.1 as the car sits right now. Maybe if you throw some slicks on it, you might be able to get close to the 14.1. But, anything can happen at the track. I expected a 13.9, and got a crappy 14.5, so who knows. Good luck, let us know how you do.

Sorry Try Me,
You probably won't hit 14.1 with the list of mods listed above.

Add a small shot of nitrous oxide, then you'll be in the 13's...
