Hi all,

I thought it would be interesting to have a thread where people can post their performance times and mods. Might help newbies like me to get a feel for which mods are effective and which are not.

I suggest we use a format similar to the following. Please be realistic with your times, eg not downhill in the middle of winter with air temps of 4 degrees and no rear seat :)

The focus here is obviously the inline 6, but if V8 owners want to post then that's fine. Just make sure you note that it's a V8!

CAR:
1996 EL Fairmont Ghia, Series 1
255,000 kms (no rebuild)
4.0 I6, Auto

PERFORMANCE:
8.5 secs 0-100 km/h (one person, half tank of fuel, standard unleaded)
Unknown 1/4 mile

PERFORMANCE MODS:
2.5" mandrel bent exhaust, cat-back, two mufflers, rear resonator
Electronic shift kit

Please disable signatures as well so we can fit more results to a page ... easier to browse through them this way.

Let us know what you've got!
Cheers, Tim
