I'm pretty much stock, and there's a kid at school that has one with an exhaust and is getting a CAI. He's apparently racing a lot of people and winning. Keep in mind the cars he beat were automatic transmission, he took a V6 camaro, and a stealth, not sure what trim for the stealth, but it had 183000 miles on it. I've got 173000 miles on my 6, but it was well taken care of before I got it, and still runs great.

According to ModernRacer.com it's 0-60 in EIGHT SECONDS!
Oh snap! Thats almost as fast as the MX6.

Anyone know what a stock 02 Toyota Echo runs in the quarter, and 0-60? My mom used to have one, but just traded it in for a Volvo S70 (a major upgrade in luxury and speed) and Im wondering what they run just for laughs?

Nah...cant be that fast. Seriously, my moms was very slow. I was thinking more like 18s or high 17s at the fastest.

It was very sad. My 6 would leave it in about half a second, like something fierce. So if its mid 16s then my car has to be a mid 14 second car.

8 seconds to 60 and a 16.2 1/4 mile on the cavi, the ecotec's arent bad for what they are.

you would destroy the cavalier. As long as you don't spin like crazy out of the hole and lose traction too badly, the cavalier should be eating your exhaust about three or four car lenghts behind. Trust me don't rev it to high off the line. I lost to a volvo wagon like that. I spun through 1st, 2nd, and the beginning of 3rd. But it was a turbo wagon man those things are fast.:cry:

My LX destroys new cavs...just the other night some guy tried to show off his cav to his girls and ended up getting wasted by my 6...unless you drive a horse and buggy cavs are nothing. Well, even with the horse and buggy it might be a good race...

Guy showed up at the last autox i went to with a z24 cavi. Whoa. What a pig. Understeer was the name of the game. That and killing cones. Personally, I don't care what kind of car you have, if it don't steer, get out of my way.

I have never raced a cavy but my friend with a 95 mustang gt did, he won by 5 carlengths. I have raced the mustang and ate it alive (8+carlengths) so you will def. rape the cavy. Well as long as you dont mess up.

yeah if it is the 2.2 ecotec cavy it is pretty quick i can understand how he can beat all those other cars like a v6 camaro or a stealth, and might be a close one with your 6, but just race him and find out
