    Default track times just dont seem right

    I took my 2001atx zx2 to the track a while ago when i just had the k&n intake, knocker mod, and 3a racing muffler and my car ran consistantly high 17s...does that sound right?

    2001 ATX ZX2 - knocker mod, 3A Racing Muffler, K&N Typhoon CAI, Superchip (RIP)
    2000 Red ZX2 S/R No mods yet

    I think sacrificing the cat is what got it to loosen finally.

    Brake torquing it off the line? That K&N intake is probably not helping either.

    I think I was like mid 17's with Ebay intake, kami header and full exhaust when I was ATX. Also had like 150lbs of bass in the trunk which made my car rock back and forth during shifts and stock suspension.

    ~98 ATX
    Last Year:
    70ish Degree Weather, Low humidity, Full Interior, Street Radials@23psi, H/E/UDP/Bad Tune = 16.8@80MPH, 2.5X 60ft's 6.5K Shift Points, 2200RPM Brake Stall
    This Year:
    80ish Degree Weather, 70-80% Humidity, Full Interior, Street Radials@26psi, I/UDP/H/E/TUNE = 16.7@84.5MPH 2.6X 60ft's 6.5K Shift Points, Intake Cam Gear +4, 2200rpm Brake Stall

    In Decent Weather without my VCT Tune the car ran a 10.4@74MPH in the 1/8th. 2.5X 60ft's

    Car should run 16 flat to low 16's in favorable weather with just basic bolt-ons even with horrible 60ft times.

    Get SCT & A Tune from Vit you will knock 1 second off your 1/4 mile times.

    Next thing for me is surprisingly not any power adders but working on the driveterrain.

    I bought 13x8 Bogart Wheels to have some M&H 22.7X8R13 Street/Strip Bias Ply Tires wrapped on them, and I'm heading to Edge Converters to have a 3500-4000Rpm stall made for the car.

    No reason a basic bolt on Automatic can't run low 15's with a correct set-up.

    I do have an iceman, just not installed, but is there a way to fit the iceman on using the k&n filter and without the stock housing

    What's wrong with the stock housing?

    If you got a reducer coupling from the MAF to Iceman and then a MAF adapter for a filter, you could run it that way.
