Thats a bit dissapointing. What would a decent turbo bring you down to?

what are you expecting..... its a 7 or so second car stock. the fastest ive recorded is 6.4 and it took lots of little adjustments with my suspension and tires to get that time. I think that is a pretty respectable time. remember there is soooo much more to a car than its 0-60 time. its completely irrelevant. a more important measure is how it picks up from like 40 to 90. a 0-60 time on a turbo car will have allot to do with traction and turbo lag. I dont know an actual time, but my guess is in the neighborhood of mid 3's to mid 5's depending on power, traction, driver skill, and transmission. Also depends if you are on the street or are setup for a drag strip.

Yeah its not even that big of a deal to me i think what i said sounded a bit different than i wanted it to. What I was trying to saw was that, if that was the case, there isnt much difference in 0-60 time between each of the setups, 1 2 and 3. Which, as you said, isnt everything.

Thanks TS for writing this all up it'll help me out a lot in the coming months.

It depends on NJ emissions testing. The headers will remove catalytic converters so if they do a sniffer test on the exhaust you will very likely fail. Here in WA, they just plug in and check the OBDII readout, no sniffer, assuming you had an o2 sim properly installed, you would pass this test.

Have a question? Try the my.is FAQ or, if you can't find an answer there, search before posting your question (hopefully in the correct forum).
