Pick up 2003 Auto on Sat, going to track on Sun, what times?

Ok, picking up a 2003 V6 Auto on Saturday morning, going to install a CAI and NX kit.

Also going to run M/T slicks off my old car and copper plugs 2 steps colder, no other mods.

What do you think it will do on Sunday at the races? Will it hit a 13 or will I get towed home?

Playing that by ear, going to ease up to 100 and then decide if I am going higher.

I wouldn't advise you to go over 100. You said it's a 2003, is it brand new car? (as in.. is the engine run in already, or not). If it has less than 3,000 miles on the ODO I would't say racing it at all would be a good idea.

A for times..... I think it's safe to say you'll hit mid/high 13s

Its not brand new so engine is broken in. I have a dual stage system so just going to try different combo's in each nozzle till I come up with the best times.

I would doubt 13's. I would guess 14.9 with a 75shot or so..

I'll do better than that I will post the video.

Could have a GT but can't race Sport Compact with it and thats the series I am into.

Two years ago I bought a Maxima to race and everyone said "oh you can't do over a 75 or 100 shot, you can't do this you can't do that, you are stupid if you try this etc. The fastest nitrous Maxima at that time was just over 14 seconds.

Guess what, this year I ran a 12.1 at 110 with a 1.7 60' and got a 6 page spread in the Oct issue of Modified Mag. That was with a 150 shot and the engine is still purring. I ran a 12.4 with a 100 shot and a 13.1 with a 35 shot. Guys on Maxima.org are still running over 14's with a 75 shot and still wondering why. I don't do magic but I do try all sorts of homegrown suspension engine and trans mods unti I find the best combo.

This was on a $4k car with less than $2k of mods.

So, guess what, I listen but I still do and try the things I think will make it faster, quicker and try and do it without blowing it up.

100 shot on a 99+ that is otherwise stock will run an easy high 13 on slicks.

14.9 is what I ran with a stock 97 and a 75 shot

no way... there is a possibility of low 14's still, but near stock several people have broken into the 14's. and yes i can back that statement with evidence.

you'll be at ~13.5-13.7 IMO.

don't cut 60's less than 1.8 unless you want to break the rear end!

Good luck mi amigo.

Ok I didn't get the video my photographer didn't come on sunday but I do have timeslips.

Here is what it did:

N/A with the intake and slicks 16.7 @ 83 mph
35 shot of NX 15.196 no MPH the speed wasn't working in the left lane
100 shot of NX 13.9 @ 95 MPH

They wouldn't let me run in sport compact either it was Test & Tune, they changed the rules and the max displacement is 3.7 Litres now.

Lousy 60' times the best I could manage was a 2.2. All in all the tractions sucks as does the performance.

I would not recommend anyone buy this car. It handles like a tank, has mucho engine noise and performs like a slug.

It is a nice looking car but that said the rest is downhill. It is way too heavy for its size and has no room.

I am going back to my Maxima. At least it runs low 12's and does a 1.7 60'.

Um...you do realize that this is a site for v6 stangs right. That probably means that the majority of people here have v6 stangs therefore we already have this car. Also, you are expecting a non-broken in car to run fast times with just slicks and power juice. Before you start dissing on the v6 stang you should realize what you are expecting a stock car to do. I'm sure you did more than put your maxima on the bottle to run low 12's so give the stang the same chance. :no:

Its well broken in I wouldn't spray on a new engine. Just don't think it has the potential to do what I want without spending a whole whack of money. That plus the fact that its only saving redemption in my opinion is that it looks nice. Handling, quality, noise etc is just not up the standard I am used to with an import.

try lowering springs and did you have the stock gears and open differential?

whoops i meant maxima boards. and another thought. you cant just add nos and expect to lose 3 seconds off your et. this isnt fast and furious. you might get a 13.5 sec 1/4 if you hade 4.1 gears, trac-loc, intake, cams, ported heads, ported upper and lowers and nitrous, and good suspension to clear up that 60ft time. it seems you have lots of money, so go do all that and come back and then youll see how fast these 6'ers can be.

oh and btw that sucks that they changed it to 3.7 thats like teasing you .1 liters away from owning imports the real way... on the track.

Why do you call BS on the 13.9? Too fast?

a stock v6 with just nos is bs. period. they guy is just making this **** up to stir up crap. i think that cause he said he went to the track and was gonna get pictures but his "photographer" didnt show. wtf does this guy call someone to take pictures? usually a freind with a camera would suffice. a 13 v6 stang is a pretty big milestone even with nos, and some of the guys around here have fully ported intakes and such and cant run that, and this guys boasting a 14sec run with just nos? it doesnt sound right. maybe if i get this stang im looking at ( This car right here) ill get a nos kit and see if the 13.9 is true. hey gsr what do you think about a turbo lsvtec? my freind is gonna keep his integra now and has lsvtec heads on the way and he saw a turbo kit for them. how well do you think itll hold up? i told him just to go all motor but he wants the vtec and turbo. i think itll make too much wear on the engine. pm me on your input bro.

Hey Jeff, do you have a auto? Also, what mods did you have when you ran the 15.9?

2.2 60 ft on a 13.9 @ 95 mph.... dont add up its bs.
you have to cut a 2.0 60 ft for a 13.9. you cant get back that much on a 100 shot and stock gear.
i run a 373 gear and my 60 ft is a 2.09 13.79 @ 100.59 mph using a ATI Pro Charger on a 2001 3.8 Mustang Automatic. Thats on street tires not even slicks. his nos bottle has a leak!
