I think its going to come down to traction more than power. i go from 50-135 in about 8 seconds. spinning off the hit and a slipping blower belt losing 2-3psi. i figure a if i can 60 better than 1.6 should at least go 10.10s

What have you done as far as weight reduction?

Never-mind my post, I just read on the "carbon fiber hood" thread .

Did you have to change rotors, calipers, or caliper brackets to fit the 15" wheels or did they just bolt right on?

had to change rotors, caliper brackets, lower control arms, and torque arms. also had to cut quarter panel liners, cut the bleed screw off the calipers, and bend over brake hose bracket and relocate hose. and grind the knuckle under the control arm mount. It was a pain.
