i know, but itll be fun to try.
it's do-able. zorst, CAI, tune and some diff gears+LSD should get you there. i managed it on the above on the crapiest 14" stock wheels and rubber around. and maybe put it on a diet ;)

i'd have another run now that i have good rubber but i'm nursing a gearbox bearing at the mo. it should be good for mid 6's now me thinks and sub 15sec 1/4mile pass

4.388secs. 0-60mph. But I'll be buggered if I didnt delete the wrong run on the G-tec so no photo. Until I can repeat it my previous 4.454sec with photo still stands. DOH!
Considering some more power upgrades in January so it will be interesting how this will effect the time on street tyres as struggling to get the power down now in first gear.

0-60mph time is now down to 4.179secs. A set of ET streets and the new Torque power dual plane hi rise manifold the latest changes. This was with a 2.05sec 60foot time so there is still room for improvement on that. I've lost 25rwhp off the peak power from what I had on the COME manifold but picked up extra lower end torque/power with the dual plane. If I kept the COME manifold I believe the time would have been simillar thou.

I recon you've made the right choice with the manifolds. Going from a COME manifold to a single plane, we picked up .3 a second down the drags (10.6 instead of a 10.9, 355 with solid cam). All of this was virtually made up in the first 60'.

You know the original definition of a supercar is a car that can go 0-60 in under 4 seconds, not far off a superwagon :D
