this is what i did, i smashed the brake and held it, smashed the the gas, let go of the brake, 0-60 7.4 seconds, started the clock as soon as i started to let off the brake, stoped the clock approx 62mph, :/
i also have a full exhaust system, <evo exhaust>, CAI w/ k&n air filter, 9mm wires, bosh 4+ plugs, Air chip, strut bar, breather, and running on cheap fuel 87 octane < should be running 91>

7.4 is faster than the manual tranny (accordin to the specs on 2gnt page), how is that?
I have CAI and gst cat back, + a liter of LUCAS becouse the car makes some smoke, but I'm doing 10.5 I will make a complete tune up and test again, what do you recomend?

the stock eclipse with a manual trany does 0 - 60 in 9 seconds according to the specs. And the manual trany eclipse is faster than the a/t, and the turbo one whit manual does 6.8 seconds, how can a almost stock automatic non turbo eclipse do 0 - 60 in 7.4 seconds?

1) Torque-brake launching makes no improvement in your launch. I have proven this on the track, with slips. Torque braking DOES ruin your transmission by overheating it eventually. Only attempt it if you have an upgraded high-stall torque convertor!

2) 7.4 seconds is obviously a timing error. Either your speedo is way out of calibration, or your stopwatch finger is off by about a full second. Most ATX's have an 8-9 sec 0-60 imo.

mine was about 10.5 to 11 as well, there is no low end power in these cars

Is it possible that Rough is running on undersized tires and so the speedometer is reading faster than reality?

Yeah, 10 to 11 seconds 0-60 is what I get. Zero mods=zero speed!
Use G-tech or something similar, don't waste your time with stop watches.

well heres a vid of me doing a perfect launch on the auto getting up to 75 - 80. so it really depends on ur state of tune and weight.

7 years later, I still stand by my 7.4 0-60. I did find out the later that the car was tuned and had forged internals, and a non factory cam. Guess PO was going to turbo it.

I have a second dsm now 98 GS, and it takes around 9 seconds for 0-60 so I can see why so many doubts.
