I got my 2001 RS at a 14.1 at e-town. I'm happy. No turbo. Need new clutch bad. Next time I will be in the 13s. By then I will have the clutch and u-pully and the shock rims on.

14.1 NA is pretty damn respectable, you should be happy with that time. Cant wait to see a 13 sec pass.

Merc,

Send me that time! That's awesome N/A. Please don't say you ran a 14.1 in the 1/8th since we are assuming you did it int he 1/4 mile.

I think this is the fastest N/A time yet. We NEED to know how you achieved such an accomplishment.

Its the "secrets you cant tell" that we are all interested in. 14.1 on an NA is movin, your secrets need to be exposed for the benifit of all.

Did you add vtec.... um I mean AVCS? Or just some wild ass cams?

Not to insult you, but was this full interior... or stripped?

A friend of mine got his '96 200SX SE-R to run 14.8 @ 93mph... N/A, but with everything but the front dash and seats pulled out... he weighed in at a stark naked 2200lbs!!! Talk about a car that cornered on rails!!

Ok... so out with it Merc, whats the secret?

Propane injection?

Running 4 miles below sea level (j/k again....)?

Twin motors?

Twin electric turbos?

New EJ30 engine swap?...hmm...
that would be nifty...and would still be N/A too.....

hmmmm.....

Gran Turismo time? (yeah, I know... no NA Imprezas in the game...just asking)

Compression increase?

Stroked Motor?

Very well match normal NA mods?

Any combo from above?

Running on nitro?

Alcohol?

Got caught in a 8 second 1/4 mile draft?

30 mph tail wind?

I running out of stuff here... someone help me out!

Very very light (lots of carbon fiber?) and perhaps four seperate throttle bodies and tuned intake tubes? Please don't keep us guessing forever.

Lightbulb I know what it is

He's using the E-RAM. I knew it!

It's been 3 days now and no news. Maybe he's bluffing.
