How can you have temps in the mid 70's while I'm only 5 hours away and getting 30's?

Most NA AT's are running about the same times you are. I only know of one TT AT that runs very quickly.

this was two months ago sorry ha forgot to mention that..... so what you are saying is that with a auto 14.0 1/4 mile time is average?

Yes, that's about right for the AT Z's.

MT's are just a little faster depending on the driver. I think the more people practice with the MT, the better times they get.

Of course, your times could improve if you gave the Z a diet and got better tires to run at the dragway.

This is true which is why i am going to do wheels and tires in the spring... due to needing new tires anyway. Also some boltons and 75 shot to top it off. Im thinking i may get very low 13 or even high 12 with that. We shall see ha!

I got 14.2 @ 98 mph in my '06 touring 5AT. That was with a crappy launch with way too much wheel spin. My 60 foot was snail slow at a 2.2sec

I was totally stock except for a 5/16 spacer and a K&N drop in then. Now I have the UpRev Osirus tune so it should be a bit quicker. My nismo exhaust and test pipes go on as soon as I get time to do it. I'll post some updated times when the pipes are on.

Nice. I ran a 14.3, 14.2, then a 14.09. So i am very happy with the results seeing how its an auto. I am wanting to improve on my times next spring. I plan on adding Borla headers and Borla TD Exhaust, also plenum spacer by PURE and then a NX 75 shot so i am thinking i will be in the 12.9-13.3 range

Yep, with all that stuff and the squeeze on it, you should easily get low to mid 13's. The headers and exhaust should get you 13.7's or 8's. The 75 shot is probably good for about half a second.

You may want to consider the UpRev tune after you get the exhaust done.

Wow that looks like it has some fairly good gains after a few mild boltons. That might be the iceing on the cake when all said and done ha. How was it loading it up yourself?? Did you run into any problems? Also i wonder if it would work with a 75 shot hmmmm.
