View Full Version : 5th Gen auto want 15's

05-02-2007, 11:45 PM
I have no prior experience at the drag strip. I see stock 5th gens 5spd's doing around 16.5 stock. Was wondering what it would take to get my car below 16's. I have a short ram, new NGK iridium sparks, and took spare tire outta the trunk/and using lighter rims. What else would I need done to get below 16's? I can strip and I have about a grand to spend. And what's a guess my 1/4 time would be as of right now being auto with little to no major mods done? :hehe:

You're going to need some serious power mods with that auto tranny in there I'd think.

Spray will be the easiest and cheapest way. 50shot wet should do it.

You get a 3sgte or BEAMS :) :)

But nah, the easiest and cheapest way would be spray like ciento said. You would have to turbo or REALLY build up your 5SFE engine.

IMO if you dont have a built 3sgte..You prolly shouldt drag race..Its fun but i ran high 15's and pretty much got laughed off the track.Auto-xing your celi is the best in fun and is not a nessecity to have a ton of hp to do it.
