well i went to the track tonight. Just got home. Without ANY preparation at all my car ran a 15.94 @88.7mph

I had 18" konig tantrum rims (heavy and slow down off the line)

Spare still in the car and full interior, no ice on intake manifold

Generic CAI (loss of low end power)

exhaust w/ custom piping and random tech cat (loss of low end power)

headers (thumbs up)

denso plugs (thumbs up)

check engine light is on cause of random tech cat (don't know if that effects anything)

so all around i was pretty satisfied w/ my time. I guess it's not great but i think it's mostly the rims and exhaust hurting me

my 1/8 mile was 10.357
my 60' time was 2.44

I was reading this month's Car and Driver and you're faster than a JRSC Focus!(16.6).:D Even with 18s!

BTW what year is you're Accord, and what do think about the headers? Are they worth it?

A JRSC Focus runs a 16.6 in the 1/8? are you sure that isnt the 1/4? Thats still slow for a blown car. :confused:

it's a 2000 and headers are a good mod. I would say they are worth it depending on your plans for the car and the price you can get them for. I got them USED for $600. Otherwise i wouldn't have gotten them. Because without plans for a unichip and/or forced induction, they will only take you so far as you can see with my car. 15.9 with full custom piping $150, high flow random tech cat $250, $550 axle-back exhaust from HKS, and $1200 comptech headers isn't to impressive, but it could be impressive with either unichip or ctsc.
