Hey everybody I just joined up on here and I have 2008 Civic Si coupe that I do plan on going to the dragstrip, 1/4mile btw. I have a K&N short ram on it now, but in a week I will be ordering Strup race header, skunk2 70mm exhaust, throttle body spacer, and a ACT Streetlight flywheel, oh and the Ingalls "Stiffy" engine torque damper for 60ft. times. It will still have the stock shitty tires on, yeah I know thats a big downfall cause they sucked ass when the car was even stock. What do you guys think it could run in the 1/4 after these mods? I've had a lot of practice at launching, still hate the delays in between shifts freakin Drive-by-wire sucks. If anybody has any advice about the setup I would appreciate it.

1/4 mile times on paper, ftl.

just wait until a few runs and you will get a good idea of how much of an improved time you made over stock; of course, this also depends on climate, drivers skill, etc.

Yeah, I was just curious what you guys think it could run with say a descent launch, and hitting every gear dead on without falling below 6k. Im pretty damn sure I could get mid to low 14's with the mods and high 13's maybe if I could get a set of drag radials. My main goal right now is just to break into the 13's. I definantly know what you guys mean about driver skill a buddy of mine had a bone stock 1998 Type-R and waxed a late 90's model Vette in the quarter, guess Vette driver couldn't drive for race for shit. Thanks for the input fellas.

you're looking mid 14's with the mods if you're lucky...13's with drag radials...keep dreaming.

drive it? Don't ask us for 1/4 times, figure them out the fun way

Bench racing is the most pointless shit ever
