Thumbs up Your best 0-60 and 0-100 times

Hey guys,
I thought it would be interesting to know the Best 0-60 and 0-100 times clocked by you guys. Cars, bikes, stock, modded... anything. I'm starting with mine.

0-60: 4.7 sec

0-100: 9.2 sec

In my Opel Corsa 1.4 with some serious mods under the hood.


(Mods, if you think this belongs in some other section, please move it)

Speedometer is not the correct way.
Many times when speedo shows hundred the exact speed is around 92-95kmph.

For what its worth i would strongly suggest that when you post in this thread you mention the method you used to measure the speed and time taken.

Its understood that these readings will be fairly inaccurate if the tools are a stopwatch and speedometer, but im sure we could still get within +/- 1 sec.

Well, used a nike lap timer (my wife clocked it sitting next to me). I know speedo is always a little above actual speed but somewhere I had heard that with oversized tyres, the speedo will actually show a lesser speed than actual (correct me if I'm wrong). My tyres are 195/50/15 as opposed to 175/65/13 stock.

That means your current tyres will show 3.2% lesser speed.
That will offset some of the speedo error.
With a lap meter and speedometer its always better to take 3 readings and then average the,.

I'd like to know what serious mods you have under the hood to make a 1.4 Corsa hit the tonne in 9.2 seconds.

Could you tell the gear shifts at what RPM and speed?

Hi Viper, I've already posted this before, but for your convenience, I'm posting it again.

Under the hood: K&N cold air intake kit, 4x2x1 custom free flow exhaust with a Magnaflow mid pipe and race spec end can, FSE fuel pressure regulator with pressure boost valve, Iridium plugs and 2mm throttle body expansion, head porting and polish with mildly shaved pistons.
(Getting a high lift cam and standalone ECM by July end, will keep you updated)

Approximations.

1st: 6500@55kmph

2nd: 6800@90kmph

Third pulls up till 145, didn't cut off but ran out of road.

What is a shaved piston? Does it mean you take material off the piston? That would drop compression? Or to create a dome to bump compression?

Sorry, typo there. That should be in the bracket. Planning to do, or should I?

FSE fuel pressure regulator with pressure boost valve - Makes a difference

Iridium plugs - 0 bhp?

and 2mm throttle body expansion - Higher air flow.

head porting and polish - 5bhp?

with mildly shaved pistons - How does it help?

(Getting a high lift cam and standalone ECM by July end, will keep you updated) - Now that is some serious mod.

So what's the stock timing of a corsa 1.4?

even after mods u are unable to pull 100. Dude i can do that in stock and have done many times. I think your speedo has major error showing lower speeds.

Maclaren its around 13.5 - 13.8 secs 0 -100 of stock..
