ok, theres some controversy on my clubs forum about drag racing, so heres the basics

03 sunfire L61 ecotec vs 01 cavalier 2200 4spd auto

heres the current mods to each

03 sunfire:
-Short Shifter
-Short ram intake(getting soon)
-Fart can(lolz)

01 cavalier:
-short ram intake
-B&M shift plus
-header
-hiflow cat
-full 2.25" exhaust


now, when we go to the track this year, im taking my subs out, pass. side seat, rear seat, and running 15" tires on steelies

Is this a question that really needs to be asked? The ECOTEC would take the old LN2 in a heartbeat, regardless of mods.

The LN2 with the 3T40/4T40 is the slowest combination you could have in a J.

if you know how to drive your car and dont miss a shift, then you would win

I'd like to see a LN2 beat a eco. Even with a bad launch I think the eco would win. Some of the LN2's I have been in are so slow. They are definately at least a second slower than the eco. But you never know, I've seen weird things happen at the track Time will tell.

Have people make up odds based on what they're thinking and take bets. Or at the very least make some bets. You'll beat him like he's not even racing.

That 2200 is looking at a 17 on a good day with those mods, a fully loaded auto eco could run 16 flat with a good driver. with a base model 5spd people have seen 15.7 stock ecos.

they are both slow , Id beat both of them lol, all eriousnes aside the ECO SHOULD win, but depends on the driver

With those mods your car SHOULD run a low 15.

I don't think anyone has run a low 15 in an All-Motor LN2 in the history of this website, let alone an auto one.

well i know my car is the faster, and im 99% likely to beat him, hopfully i have my exhaust done by the time May comes around, that should help my times, plan on doing tranny mounts too if my financial situation alows

why speculate, just go street race in rush hour traffic, in a school zone, with two funeral parlors near by and be done with it.
