13.3 seems like pretty much stock. My car went 12.6 with intake, headers, tune. Adding DR's it went 12.5. Some bolt on cars have gone 12.1 so 13's isnt even close to being odd.

Its not bad, throw some headers on it and get a tune and it will wake it up a lot!

13.3 seems alittle fast for stock. All the ones I seen and my own went 13.7-13.9 stock.

Just depends on the driver and the track, I see guys pull 1.9 stock and some guys 2.3, has a big impact on what he car runs. I did say about stock, I see more 13.4-13.6 so 13.3 with a couple mods would be about normal.

Fair enough. The best my car would do was a 2.1 stock then with CAI and tune it went 1.9.

Times seem fairly normal to me. I went 12.8 @110 with the same mods you have plus Kooks midlength headers and tune and that was on heavy *** chrome wheels.

Mine could only go 13.7 at 102.5 with rotofab and magnaflow cat back with drag radials. Probably would have been quicker on street tires. 60ft sucked. 2.10

Mine is all stock, ran today. The DA was 2641 80 degrees. best was a 13.81 at 100, that was after i iced the intake, it ran 14.oo off the road. raced a new camaro it ran a 14.04. auto . so i guess mine runs decent.

Last week I went 13.41@104 with a 2.079 60' with a just a CAI, 2.5" x-pipe and Magnaflow mufflers.

Found that with out a tune the torque management system will kill your 60' if you try and powerbrake it. Best I could get was a 2.11 like that. So i just went off idle to full throttle.

Hoping a tune will put me around a 13.1-13.2
