13.7 when it was dead stock... Mine is the SRT-4 ACR and weighs a couple hundred pounds lighter than stock... but yes after the Stage 1PCM, Hardpipes, CAI, AGP WGA, Turbo XS BOV, DasMopar Map Clamp, MBC, AGP Downpipe and Mopar exhaust with slicks it's in the 12's depending on weather and trackand that is on pump gas and not touching the block... all stock I say. :shock:

seems we got an electronic tweaker in the audience...awesome, because that's the easiest way I've found to get horses out of cars like that, and even my Burb once I get the DFI set up on it :)

Actually, the beemer is a car. I rode the new K1200R & S bikes from BMW and they were nice but I like my FZ1 better.

325Ci...it looks pretty sweet. Black, sport package with clear indicators etc. I haven't made any mods. It's really not a fast car (my GTI is quicker). Next year it's an M3 although the M6 is an ass kickin' machine (500+ HP I believe) but who has $90k laying around?.

The fastest vehicle I ever had was my '88 Taurus. It was rare to find one in that year model with a 3.8L V-6, much less with high-performance aluminum heads, lol. It climbed up to 130 pretty quickly, but it was red-lining at around 6000, so I had to back off, as those aluminum heads were stock, and I went above 6000 RPM one time and blew the head gaskets. Not bad for around 150-160 HP I think.

My grandma had a 93 Taurus SHO(Super High Output) with a 6-speed standard. The speedometer went up to 240 and my grandma got more than 8 tickets in the years she had it lol

Is that in KPH, lol? The SHO is a bad-ass lil Ford, and I don't even like Fords all that much. I found a '97 I wanted one time, only had 80000 miles on it, nothing wrong with it, and the guy (a dealer no less) wanted only 7800 for it. But, when I went to check on the insurance for it, considering I had a speeding ticket and an at-fault accident on my record, they wanted 1800 every six months, so I was like "sh1t, can't have anything". Oh well.....

Here's a little something I put together years ago while I was living in Europe. I's not much, but it got me from point "A" to point "B" ok.
