Default Is a 14-15 Sec. N/A PT Cruiser Possible

I was just wondering if this is possible because I have a rich friend who is buying a used Stock Nissan 350z with about 100,000 miles on it. So I figure it will run somwhere around that time. And I would just love to go out to the drag strip with him and atleast keep up with him. You guys tell me.

I haven't seen anyone do better than upper 16's. Of course you put a bunch of money into it.........

15.2 with the sluggish auto trans is easy. Nothing more than free flow air filter, exhaust, and 115hp of nitrous.
I made nearly 100 1/4 mile runs in IHRA classes. It's very consistant.

I've not seen anyone put my setup on a 5-speed, but that should be 14.9 or better.

Yup! Dream on.......
(2006 Touring NA, standard, with AirRaid intake, best ever 28+ myself)
The Cruiser isn't made for gas mileage! Just saw a article in the paper this morning about Chrysler paying the government around $30 Mil in fines because they didn't meet fuel mileage requirements! Duh!

I have a 2001 5 speed and I was only able to pull off a 17 (spun the tires through first and second) but the BMW I was racing didn't win by much, so I was happy... that was when my car was STOCK though... now... hehe

Yeah, I'd like to know, too, because I don't see any power mods in your list that would give any noticeable hp improvement.
