realistic expectations?

Ive been scouring forums and threads looking @ the numbers gtos put down.. granted i only have ps lt's, catless mids, k&n intake, monstr lvl 3 clutch, and an msw-p shifter along with a mild tune, i know i shouldnt expect something phenomenal. but crap. I came from having a turbo cobalt that could run l 13s with ease on street tires and it only put down a measely 240 whp on a dyno that my goat made 303 on.

Is it reasonable to expect around a 12.9 or 13.0 in this car? my cobalt weighed 3650 with me in it and the gto weighed 3800 last i went to the track...(with everything in it)

considering the cobalt had 63 less whp than the goat on the same dyno and it ran 13s easily... why shouldnt the goat be able to run low 13s or even a high 12??

What kind of dyno was it? Is it a 2004 GTO?

I would think with a 2.0x 60ft you'll be in the 12s no problem (with good shifting). The launch will be key.

I feel your pain. My Saturn is quicker than my Gto also. How does your Balt weigh so much compared to your Gto? The Balt and Ion are supposedly 100 pounds apart and mine weighs 3100. Stereo stuff?

<-- Guess which ones quicker?.....Nope! Not even close.

the balt had a custom turbo setup. the mani and the downpipe were very strong and heavy.. and the intercooler was fairly large along with alot of piping.... im a basketball player as well so my 220 lbs doesnt really help..

2.2 isn't getting an LS2 in the 12s.

303rwhp with your mods is a VERY low number on any dyno.
You should be around 350-375rwhp.
I have ps headers, X-pipe, no cats, AEM intake, large glasspacks
and mild tune and have 369/370 on a dynojet.
