Default S-Series 1/4 Mile Times.

Since this question has been asked numerous times, and I know when I first got into Saturns it was one of the questions I had in mind...

Here is what mainly stock Saturns run in the quarter-mile.

Well folks, here we go...

At the bare minimum, tell us what sort of car you've got, what type of transmission, what mods were done, and what your best quarter-mile time was. If you've only got an eighth-mile time, go ahead and inform us of that. If you'd like to post up the whole time slip, you're more than welcome to. The more information available, the better.

Here's my entry...

1997 SC2, five-speed (MP3). At Firebird Int'l Raceway (Phoenix).
-2.5" crush-bent/2.25" mandrel-bent cat-back exhaust to two fart-can mufflers.
-Removed intake resonator, stock airbox and filter.
-Twistec style motor mounts, stock TAM.
-All runs were made with full interior, spare tire, and stuff in the backseat (extra oil/coolant, small toolkit, etc...), just as I'd be in everyday driving conditions. With around 1/4 tank of gas too...

R/T: .698
60': 2.425
330: 6.850

Unknown DOHC, manual (MP3?).

-58mm TB.

I'm getting the DOHC manual information from the following:
OBX only makes a header for the DOHC Saturn 1.9L.
The manual transmission from the following:
The AEM CAI's won't fit on an automatic.
Whether he's got an MP2 or MP3, I'm unsure.
