Additional parts, modifications, upgrades & information:
(0-60, weight, upgrades parts, etc...)
Best times with auto shift, manual shifting results in much slower times. Altered intake helped to stabilize 1/4 times. Heated steering wheel is nice. Stock brakes are the best I've ever had on a car. Car ran a best of 14.67 with original 2.81 rear. Current combined mpg is 19. Added smaller front wheels and went from 14.36 to 14.19. Time displayed is from a losing effort. Dialed a 14.23.
