    VE Calais V 6 litre
    :)

    Not that I am any drags expert, but I ran my VE Calais-V to a 12.789 sec 400 metres @ 182.60 Kph running in 20" wheels and street tyres on 25th April 2008.

    For mine the best result with the A6 was just leave it in drive and surprisingly "ESP on". If you do leave esp on, don't crank the stall revs over 1,000 (or esp will kill the engine timing and power). Mine has the rev limiter set at 7,200 and shifts in auto at between 6,800 and 7,000 depending on the gear its in at the time.

    I agree with what someone said earlier, the weight is the real killer with these cars... I just can't get anywhere near a respectable 60 foot time no matter what I do, hence the car has to make up for lost time by pulling reasonably good mid to ET speed. Its best ET speed to date was 114mph, but this wasn't my best overall time.

    ozi, At least tune and exhaust to make that time in a VE, possibly tune ONLY but most likely not

    Ve ss 1/4 mile

    I HAVE RUN A 13.34 et at 108mph over the quarter in Sydney with exhaust and CAI, NO Tune.
    I hope to run a 12 sec time in Willowbank next chance I get, with decent traction off the line I believe its quite possible especially at 108 + mph which the car has already shown that it can do.........

    2006 VE SSV A6
    Mounted a camera in my 2006 VE SSV A6 stock standard (dyno 207.5rwkw) and best, yet consistent, 0-100kph was 5.7s. Other times were...

    0-120kph 7.5s
    0-140kph 9.4s
    0-160kph 11.6s
    0-170kph 13.0s

    Then I got OTR Air Intake and performance tune resulting in 243.6rwkw and even with an extra 40kg of petrol compared to stock test above the times changed to...

    0-100kph 4.9s (best but average over 10+ runs is now 5.2s)
    0-120kph 7.0s
    0-140kph 8.9s
    0-160kph 10.9s
    0-180kph 14.0s
    0-200kph 17.6s
    0-230kph 23.0s

    Conditions didn't allow me to test it any faster but it was still accelerating quite well for the relatively low 243.6rwkw in a heavy car.

    Next week it is getting 1 3/4 Difillipo headers, full 2.5" difillipo exhaust, 233/238 0.612/0.604 113LSA cam, valve springs, 25% UD Pulley and professional port and polish of the heads. The shop doing the work give prety conservative rwkw figures but still expect 330+rwkw from this work. Pretty excited to test performance once completed!

    All testing done in private, controlled environment.

    sporty custom, no it's not fast but it's good to share what mods we've done and what results are... picking up the extra performance compared to stock is a good result.

    ssv, here's a vid of 5.2s to 100, I've tried a lot of launch options and best is really just to stab it from idle (about halfway for the first 1/3 of a second to reduce wheelspin then squeeze it to the floor) with ESP on. You get a little bit of wheel spin but it's better than the other 3 options; launching at 1,800rpm with and without ESP and stabbing it from stop without ESP. All 3 of these less effective options get too much wheelspin,

    I am running 245/35/20s with near new tread too. These will obviously be fairly useless once the next round of mods are complete!
