i had a street race a few days ago against a honda del sol. put it this way
on my third gear he was a hole car behind and we raced 5 lights only i cant even amagine a 1/2 a mile race
1200 bucks should NOT have been put into an SL1. The money should have been put into a SOHC to DOHC swap first and then add ons from there. You can put quite alot of money into an SOHC yet its still just about matching a stock DOHC. Id look into an engine swap in the future

Back when I used to take mine to the dragstrip. My car was all stock and I ran a 17 second flat 1/4 mile.

I still got it, but I have a family now and stuff. So I dont do anything anymore.

went to Atco Raceway tonight here in NJ

Mods in sig. only thing removed was spare tire and jack, since i had 1/2 to 3/4 tank of gas at the time. got 4 passes in, and it really surprised the heck out of me. i was figuring 16.2-16.5 @ 84-86mph

1st pass, hot off the street, and no idea on how i should launch it

60' 2.639
330' 7.002
1/8 10.56 @ 69.26 mph
1000' 13.616
1/4 16.211 @ 87.23 mph

run 2 1.5 hrs to cool down. removed my filter and hooked my ram air hose up to the intake pipe

60' 2.448
330' 6.725
1/8 10.229 @ 70.24 mph
1000' 13.244
1/4 15.816 @ 87.97 mph

run 3 had about an hour or more cooldown time
got some wheelhop

60' 2.518
330' 6.747
1/8 10.245 @ 70.36 mph
1000' 13.254
1/4 15.818 @ 88.25mph my best mph

run 4 a lil bit of wheel hop but not as bad as run 3

60' 2.468
330' 6.732
1/8 10.235 @ 70.31 mph
1000' 13.245
1/4 15.808 @ 88.18 my best ET

i think its safe to say it does 15.8s pretty consistently lol. im gonna buy a header with a high flow cat and ill see if it helps at all. i snapped my downpipe on the way home. so obnoxiously loud lol

The header and cutout made a hugeeee difference. gained alot more time than i though i would. the poly inserts for the torque strut mounts also helped alot! barely any wheelhop.

went to atco on 8-19-10

60' 2.480
330' 6.543
1/8 9.919 @ 72.82 mph
1000' 12.843
1/4 15.345 @ 90.54 mph new best ET and mph across the board

on a slightly slower (spinning) 60' i still managed to pick up 4.5 tenths and 2.5 mph!

I just bought accel coils and msd wires (hopefully theyre in this week) and Im 3M window welding the new motor mount and it might be ready by this upcoming thursday, 8-26-10

in good air, i think it could see a 15.0 or maybe a high 14

Last night i went to atco raceway

only changes since last trip was a new oem motor mount that i 3m window welded and new accel coils

new bests!

60' 2.358
330' 6.381
1/8 9.741@ 73.18mph
1000' 12.652
1/4 15.138 @ 90.90mph

after that pass, i made 2 passes where i cut a 2.28 60' but i missed 3rd gear and went 15.44 at 89.56mph :/ tried shifting too fast for my own good lol. without a doubt, that wouldve been a 14.9 or 15.0
