Get my ED to 100km/h in under 7 seconds!

I have finally got some specific goals in mind for my car :) To get the 0-100km/h figure in under 7 seconds - aiming for mid 6s! I also want it to pass the 1/4 mile in 14.5 or lower.

Now I have no idea how silly or stretched my aims are, but I want to get some opinions anyway. What sort of KW/Nm figures should be good for my aims?

Firstly, if my sources are correct the EBII & ED XR6 hit 100km/h in 7.5 seconds. True? I don't have 1/4 mile figures, but if someone could dig them up, I'd really appreciate it. Now I realise the diff is shorter (3.45) and they have a different cam, but what else is there (besides suspension etc)?

My first ideas are: most obviously a full exhaust system, followed by 3.7/3.9 (pref. 3.7s) diff gears and a new cam. What else would come next?

I suppose if this doesn't do the job, I'll either save for a supercharger (I'd prefer this route as opposed to turbo charging, why I don't know!) or end up buying another car.

I'd love to have a sleeper cracking into 13s, but isn't that the minimum for all of our dreams?

By the way, currently the car is stock and using the good ol' four-speed slush box.

Long live my dreams!

Cheers.

XRated - how driveable etc do you want the car, 4.11's will limit you to 80k's or you will be doing way to many revs down the freeway.

Re: Get my ED to 100km/h in under 7 seconds!

Hey Jason, you're right. I should mention that I want the car to be a comfortable daily-driver at this stage. I want it to be capable of 120km/h without too much strain on the engine etc. That is why I would prefer to go 3.7s.

EDFPV-6, that's my aim: to comfortably take out R33 GTS-Ts

I've considered the Mock kits, but I am a little bit sceptical, although the Autospeed review was very positive. I'm not too sure whether I should source parts myself or get a kit...

Re: Get my ED to 100km/h in under 7 seconds!

Isnt there an EA on this site that has run mid 14s with very little work?

I think all you'll need is a 5speed, exhaust, extractors, cold air and a cam of some sort.
I think a too short of a diff in a manual wont actual give you quicker 1/4 mile times as you'll need to make an extra gear change into 4th. 3.23 or 3.45 would be as high as id go.
