Quarter mile times?



  • Hi,

    Been searching for some times and can only really find one thread. Reason I was looking was to get an idea of how these cars react to different engine swaps.

    Unfortunately due to not knowing what spec people have when they posted the times I can only gather this info :

    1.6 Auto . . . . . . . 20.014
    1.6 Manual . . . . . .??
    1.8 Manual K8 . . . ??
    2.5 Manual KLDE . ??
    2.5 Manual KLZE . 14.39

    Does anyone have any times they wish to share?



  • There was a good list on mx-3.com
    http://www.mx-3.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=22&t=63684&hilit=quarter+mile&start=195

    Not really completely comparable but gives you an idea at least!



  • Ah Cheers for that :)

    Yes its quite difficult to compare, no idea what the supporting mods are etc but can get a general idea :)

    So a very rough idea, using a few averages etc. Filling in what I didnt have before, I get this :

    1.6 Auto . . . . . . . 20.014
    1.6 Manual . . . . . .16.700
    1.8 Manual K8 . . . 15.835
    2.5 Manual KLDE . 14.957
    2.5 Manual KLZE . 14.39

    Was having a think how effective the engine swaps are. I have a K8 and was wondering why the compression ratio was only 9.0:1 being N/A as that would be perfect for a bit of FI.

    I wonder why Mazda didnt go for a higher compression as surely it would have yielded more power and mpg overall?
