You could expect a run of just over 15 seconds, I imagine.

it would be most likely in the high 13's or low 14's

a Honda Civic SiR does it in just over 15's, I don't think the 540 is that slow

I pulled a 14.1@101.2mph with alot of wheel spin in 2nd. The track was very dirty. If you can master the launch and pull a 1.8-1.9 60ft time you should be good for around 13.7-13.8. I know I can break the 14 second barrier just didn't have enough time and a clean track to do it with.

those are some nice runs Greco, I checked out www.540is.com I was surprised to see that his car with almost 500rwhp ran high 12's, but he had 19" rims & street tires on
