Never ran my car before, or even ran on a legal drag strip before.. but.. I took her out tonight.. and ran her like the dickens.

Keep in mind, she hasn't been dyno tuned for a year.. pushing 17" rims 25lbs per rim..

R/T 1.060 (my best was .862)
60' 2.530
330' 7.084
1/8 10.746
MPH 66.18
1000 13.9
1/4 16.577
MPH 84.40

I have:

AEM CAI
Topspeed 4-2-1 Header
Apex'i N1 full catback
Apex'i V-AFC
ACT Street Clutch w/ Extreme Pressure
Skunk2 Cam Gears
Skunk2 Cam Shafts
B&M Short Shifter

I think if I get her tuned right.. and put on some stock Si rims 15" at 18 lbs per rim.. I'll be hittin 15's.. then in about a month 1/2 i'll be doing the b20/vtec.. hopefully i can pop it into the 14's or maybe high 13's..

EDIT: BTW my CAI cone filter is like black with dirt and grime.. I think I need a new one bcuz it gets soooooo dirty when it rains etc..

What ya'll think? I know I need to work on my R/T bcuz I'm jumping when it turns green when I should jump on the last yellow.. and I need to walk the clutch isn't of just dumping it straight out..

If you want my honest opinion...That is a horrible time. You need practice on your launches, try to atleast get 2.3's. Also i don't see you u could have intake, headers, vafc, cams, cam gears, and clutch, and still be at a about the same time as a stock si or even slower.

In case you didn't know, r/t has nothing to do with your overall 1/4 time. your time start once you break the beams. what u really need to work on is your 60-ft time. What rmp were u lauchin at when u ran?

If you can work on your 60' you can lick up alot of time. For inslance if you hook nad get a 2.0 60' then it should be about a second off your time.

Yeah man my slowmo accord runs a 16.9 mayb it could be your cams need to be tuned. How much gas did you ahve in the tank sometimes that could make a diff. But hey at least you have a potential fast car uinlike me:( Id love to have an si but being in college im stuck with what I have. about rts you could sit at the tree for like 30 secs and the clock wont start moving until you get off the line.

um he doesnt have cams, according to what he posted, and what is there to tune on stock si cams? Im not even sure if the launch is what is killing him b/c i had a 2.4 60' and i ran a 15.6 with just an intake. i think its the rims that are killing your times, get some 15's for track use.

nothing is killing your time, except for yourself. I see people break 15's in a stock Si. With those mods you have, you shold be running low 15's. You just need to practice.

your wheels are whats mainly killing you...the SI don't have enough toque to really get your car moving with them 17s.

your times will go down A LOT if you get your 60 foot down. Here is what i do when i launch. Rev up to whatever RPM (4k for me at the track) and let the clutch HALFWAY out. You'll want to let it out to the point right before it actually starts to engage, that way you'll only have to move it out a tiny bit to get it to engage. That way you don't have to dump the clutch, you just have to make small adjustments. Your trap speed is also pretty low for a SI...do you have a lot of extra weight like stereo or something in your car? My 00 civic EX got a 10.7 at around 61 mph with just i/h/e and when i put on my 55 shot i went to a 71.8. And when i put on my turbo at 5.5 psi i went up to 73.9 mph. If you can pull around a 2.2 you should be able to break at least a mid 15.

Only thing heavy is my rims.. those bia's are huge.. I'm gonna try and run on some smaller, more lightweight rims.. and yea.. I don't think I should just drop the clutch.. I think I'm gonna try to feather it next time..

I actually raced my car for the first time today.. totally stock, at a shitty wet track (it was raining slightly).. full tank of gas and spare tire and jack in the trunk..
i ran 15.500 as a best.. my launches sucked and my 60 ft times were 2.5-2.6
i have a 96 gs-r..
practice your launches and make sure you dont shift while still burning...ive had a standard car for 1 month and a half, and i never practiced my launches until yesterday and ran 15.5 today
