I ran my tibby yeserday and used my g-tech performance meter to get an idea of what it runs. I ran it three time's and got a 13.8,13.6 and 14.0. and that seems kinda low. My mods are weapon-r intake(no comments please),4-2-1 header from shark racing, ported and polished head and intake,1.8l elantra intake cam, zex nitrous kit set at 55 hp, bigger injectors, paxton fuel pump,full 2 1/4" exhaust (no cats)and bosch platinum +4 plugs. With these mods do you think a 13 second 1/4 mile is possible or is this meter a piece of crap?<img src=icon_smile_question.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_question.gif border=0 align=middle>

Go to a weigh station and weigh you car.
Then enter that number in as the weight, and then give us the results. I'm guessing the weight you enter is off.

I'd guess it's very possible.

On those runs were you spraying?

If you were spraying 55 shot, then those are possible.

Without Nitrous, no way in hell.

I agree with KayJai, the weight you entered was too low.

keep in mind you have to add your weight, plus the weight of any passengers, car audio equipment, and aftermarket wheels to the cars weight of about 2600.

As KayJai said, best way to get accurate numbers is to get your car to a scale...with you in it, then use that figure...

You should be running mid to low 14's, but not high 13's with that setup.

I weigh my car in at the following:

2586lbs --> car weight
200lbs. --> me
100lbs. --> Stereo
12lbs. ---> Wheel weight over stock

So we have 2898lbs.

Try that number.

I still think that the car could break a high 13.

I was looking into that g-tech pro performance monitor, and on their site it is listed for rear wheel cars only. so it will inaccurately read for our fwd, it is how the sesnor inside are used, and the algorythmn that it uses to calculate is all made for rwd, thats why mostly mustangs use them, and hondahs ricers use them.

2586lbs --> car weight
200lbs. --> me
100lbs. --> Stereo
12lbs. ---> Wheel weight over stock x 4 for 4 wheels.

So we have 2<b>934</b>lbs.

Or is each tire/wheel combo only 4 lbs heavier?

No, I meant each wheel is 3 pounds heavier, for a total of 12 lbs. So my original total is correct.
