Show up with the gas needle on E or close to it (1/4 tank) take out spare tire... I think its like for every 100 pounds you lose like 1/8 of a second off your track time.

exhaust and vafc2 controller should give you another 10hp.

also, you shifting at the right rpm's? ive heard of stock 03 ex 6spd that'll run 14.7ish-- shouldnt be over 15

this is crazyness... you should stay N/A thou... and well i dunno much about this stuff but eh, wtheck... i second the exhaust and VAFC2, and may i add a drop... i read up somewhere about it helping so that the weight doesnt shift to your rear tires and u get more traction and power to the floor... or just throw about every mod for a 7th gen and wah lah

edit: what about light-light wheels? i think theres an endless amount of things u could do, just gotta find the ones w/ benefits... good luck

Nitrogen in the tires, ya that's why I posted here, to read dumb arss replys like nitrogen in the tires, did i post in the comedy forum or a performance forum? any way, car and driver hit 14.5 @ 98 stock if i hit 100.0000000000001 I'm done and happy! like i said I want to keep regular interior, no nos and keep it N/A. I have the aem v2, toyo t1r's EMPTY I mean EMPTY tank of exxon 93, took out spare and jack, (and stuff in glove box & arm rest) my 60' times really need to improve i know this much! what is the VAFC/2 & cost and who has experience with it, and what other stuff. thanks to the guys w/ good suggestions, and to the comedians, trade the honda in on a geo metro and join their forums i'm sure you'll get more laughs in their forums.

^^thats no joke...you can have your tires filled with N2, which is much better than air.

DOH!!..

open mouth insert foot.

if you do get the vafc your going to need to tune it.

getting lightweight tires/rims will help... losing weight definately. best way to increase trap speed. umm no clue...im lost here.

dude wasn't trying to be funny... it really sheds weight...it's way better than air.....every single NASCAR vehicle is filled with nitrogen....i mean, you're not lose a significant amount of time, but any weight reduction will help

Geez- all of you guys are crazy. With just your V2 and stickier tires you should be able to hit pretty close to 100mph.

But what you need to work on the most is THE DRIVER! Your fastest stock time is 15.0 with a 2.4 60 foot in a 6 speed?!?!? That's terrible! The fastest stock time I've heard of is 14.2 and I believe that was at 99mph. Good/average stock times have been around 14.4-14.5 at 97-98 mph. Get to that point first and then worry about doing more mods.

I haven't been down to the track yet this year but I'm hoping with my V2 and my stickier tires that I'm able to hit close to 14 flat- which I don't think is unreasonable given decent conditions- that should put me around 100mph. The most important part is the launch- search on this forum for advice.

lightweight wider rims with a bigger footprint on the tires like 225 or 235. and a better 60 ft a best of 2.409 can be improved i usually get 2.320 and the best was 2.273

Man you definitely need to work on your driving technique. 14.7 is a bad time for a stock 6 speed, let alone a modded one.

Of course that is depending on elevation- is your track at a high elevation?

Besides the mods you've done and suggested (VAFC)
Lighten up your car!
CF hood + CF trunk + CF roof
12lb 16" or 17" rims with sticky 225 or 235 tires.
Take out your side curtain air bags, side airbags and front airbag systems.
Take out your entire AC system (you live in the NE rite?)
While you're at it, drain your wiper fluid too.
Go on a diet and lose 20lbs.

Guaranteed, when properly driven, you'd get a 14 sec flat or better.

The purpose of pumping N2 in tires is to stabilize pressure changes due to temperature. At the volumes we're talking about, the mass difference is negligible (btw, air consist mostly of N2).

It might not be a bad idea to take a look at your gearing for the 6-speed. If I remember correctly the 6-speeds need a very quick shift to 4th gear before crossing the 1/4 mile finish line.

Rev-limit in 3rd just won't get you to that 100mph mark. Then again the shift to 4th takes up time and some speed. You might need more than you think to crack that magical 100mph mark. Nitrous might be the cheapest and quickest way.

Best,

have you thought about removing your body kit and spoiler? I think those are relatively easy to take off/put on, and have to weigh a pretty good bit.
