Just want to get a feel for how much power some mods will bring out in my E30. If you've ran your car at the drag strip, what was your time and what mods do you have done?

E30's are traction limited. If you upgrade power you'll need to get some good wide rubber.

My M20B27 (325e) with a Mark D chip, bald tires showing chords and engine that was probably down on power after 370k ripped off a 16.6.

I ran 15.6 few weeks ago. It was my only proper run but i'm sure it can do better.
