I leave the light at 4000rpm, and shift at 6000rpm the rest of the track. I run 30 pounds in the front tires.

60ft was 2.25, the 1/8 was 9.85 @ 71.53, and the 1/4 at 15.30 @ 89.79 mph

I leave at 1500 rpm that boost comes up spins 1st, 2nd , and 1st part of 3rd. With 9 psi on 17 falken drag radials(junk) and still pull out 13.4 @ 111 mph. Factory I could lauch at about 3200 with 28psi in tires and spin lowerer half of first but It would still pull good while spinning and I would get a 15.4 @ 90 mph.

i ran my automatic eco on 7psi the other night this is what i ran

r/t .7131
60ft 2.1489
330' 5.9167
1/8 9.0480
1/8mph 76.77
1000' 11.7578
1/4 14.0800
1/4mph 101.09

this was on a full tank of gas, wheelspin through all of first and part of second, a @!#$ty track and launching at around 2300rpm and 90 degree weather. i could easily be 13.7 or 13.8 on a cold night with less than a 1/4 tank of gas. the tire pressure was also normal street use, didnt bother letting out any pressure

How you ask..................because it's bench racing, BS or 6ull@!#$. I have yet to see a stock 2.2 ecotec anything with any trans run a 16 flat. Hell I've yet to see one run 16.7 at FIREBIRD and I keep an eye on them because I've run my 20.L, 2.2L, and 2.4L. I mean I've only been to the track SIX times this year and at least 15 times a year for the last 7 years. I guess all those runs are made when I'm not at the track.

thats weird cuz i've done 15.7 stock ecotec. i have an exhaust and intake(on stock box) now and i couldn't tell you how much quicker it is but i can feel it (alot) i've had ppl drive my car that had 4cy engines and say that it shouldnt have that much power while stock.

15.7 don't remember speed

I ran my 2002 cavalier z24 with the 2.2 L ecotec, with aftermarket muffler and k&n air filter at toronto motorsports park and ran a 16.7 1/4 mile time, with a 4 speed automatic transmision. I didnt think this was a bad time considering the car is almost stock.
