    Well your starting point is somewhere in the mid 15's :-[ :-[ with the mods you have your probally about 25-30rwhp over stock so that puts you somewhere around 200rwhp or so :dunno: the gears will cut a few tenths off your quarter. What you NEED is a tq converter that would free up almost half a second :boink: :boink:. With what you have you could get high 14's I would think, but I dont really see you in the mid 14's without a few more mods. The converter would do wonders.

    That 13.7 included what mods cuz I know that was not stock, thats a killer time for a manual trans car much less an auto. And your right the only way to know is to get it to a track and get a time, I use to have the orginal G TECH meter about 7 years ago it was fun to play with and was very close to track times. I used it once in my 95 GT and there was only .9 between the track clock and the TECH clock.

    i say at best you will see high 14s....the thing that is killing you is the auto tranny, you should loook into a tuner like an Xcal2 as your next mod so you can change the shift points. And i would have went with 4:10s in an auto.

    He has afew mods...4.10s auto tranny, intake plenum, cold air, larger throttle body, superchips tuner...and full bassani exhaust.. I though manual tranny 99-04s could get into the 13s stock?..Its hard to tell..but I definately think my car is faster than high 14s

    I was lookin into that as m next mod xcal2 and a dynotune..but um where do you think the best shift points are..my shifts are too slow..compared to my brothers chipped auto its a big differance....my car seems to peak at about 5000 rpms..doesnt seem to pull over 5k..so would my best shift points be like 5200? 5500?

    with your mods, i dont suggest wasting your money on a dynotune...When i get my nitrous and PI swap im geting my Xcal2 from www.VMPtuning.com, i know a lot of people that he has done tunes for and he is local, and my friend told me he has a package deal of $500 for an Xcal2 and Dynotune...

    yea with a good driver and a 5 speed you can get high 13's out of a PI GT car, the autos are around mid 14's stock.
