alright so here is the story im kinda new to this forum so most of you dont know much about me.
eversince i got my 3 (nov.17th 2007) i've been taking it to the track to see how i stood on the numbers.
my best run with couple of mods (intake, epoxygel motormount, twm ss, ngk iridium) i ran 15.7 (see slips below). well last night i went back to the track to see if after the trz motor mount, intake mani, headers and tune i was doing better or not. well i sucked lol i was so dissapointed but i have heard header and mani kill torque but give u top end.. which really blows.. here are the slips take a look at them and give me ur thoughts!
thanks!

Damn, the bimmer had a reaction time of .002 seconds!? Sounds like he got really lucky with a preemptive clutch drop.

I wouldn't recommend getting stock 16" wheels, they're super narrow. Get 16x8 FD wheels or something.

ur launch are not good. it shows in ur 60.
i got 15.3 with just an intake and engine mount insert... i could have got in the 15.2 if the temp wasnt so hot and humid.
but i kept runing 15.3 everytime. i ran 15.78 stock, so i know this car, your car can get much better, you should even be close to the 14...

reaction time has nothing to do with ur ET, you can stay there for an hour and still run 10sec.

the key is, pre-loading, and power shifting
