Ride: Ford FPV FG F6 310

Power: 149 rwkw

Location: Brisbane
QLD, Australia

mods - extractors and a holey 2.5in exhaust (at the time i tested it), cold air intake, mandrel bent pipe and k&n flat panel filter.
my best time was a 15.529 @ 145.66km/h
i had s**t tyres that day, and had more than 1/2 tank of juice, and it was just unleaded.
since then i have got a new 2.5in exhaust, and a hi-flow cat, so should go quicker, just had no time to run it.
by the way it's a 6cyl 5spd manual.
