Does 17.0 1/4 mile sound right. More inside.

For a 2000 323i auto?

Thanks for the info.

I went to the track last night and got 14.235 @ 97.345 mph in the 1/4 with my supercharged 00' 323Ia.

A stock 99 323 went 17.0 @ 89 and change, this sound right are these cars that weak stock?

Could be - someone posted the other day that they were at the strip and someone with a 5-speed 323 with a 3.46 diff, intake, software, exhaust, and pullies ran a 15.0 1/4 mile. And the auto 323's are much slower than the stick cars.

17 seems a bit slow but not to far off for an auto, they Sap the hell out of the 2.5l engines.

17??

I would think 16.5 for a stock auto, maybe...but 17?

Your 14.2, on the other hand, is a nice time. On average, that's faster than both a stick 330 and an E36 M3.

I've seen an S2000 run a 16 . It depends on the driver..... at least in that case it did.

ESS
http://www.enhancedstreetperformance.com/

ESS did a great job, they know what they are doing. The Customer service is awesome. They are located in Sterling MA and are worth the drive.

The kit was $5299. The 3 gauges were $150.00

The total install for everything was $900 (SC kit and 3 gauges)

No, Autotap is just a scan tool. The computer is updated by AA tuning, you pay for it as part of the kit.

I just raced at the track, took down 1 stock mustang and a bunch of hondas and 1 pontiac GTP
