Also pretty fast for anything with the 1.6 turbo engine. I think 14.8 is the fastest stock time from kia/hyundia
That 14.3 is with oem downpipe, intercooler, and tune. With economy 185/65r15 so still plenty on the table

Eh, this is my daily that I've put over 8,000 miles on since about August. Pretty sure I could hit [email protected]+ without a tune, with just tires. It gets 36+ mpg. If I wanted a ls I would just buy a $15,000 Corvette. The tires, gas, insurance cost just isn't worth it to me.

It's funny, because I've had a lot of vintage muscle cars, and present day performance vehicles.

13.9 sec used to be considered fast for a street car. And, a 3,600 pound, manual transmission, big block one at that.

It's still pretty good for a fwd car that's mostly stock, can get an inspection sticker, and pass emissions. A true daily on all season tires.

Mine too. But I did have an LS up until about a year ago. I owned a 2005 GTO for about 11 years and sold it in January 2020.
