ET's for a stock 3.1 Z26

A member here back in 2001 ran about 16.0 at 86 bone stock with like 50k on the clock.

We also had a base 3100 run a 15.8 with a 3k new engine.

But for the most part 16.3-5 at 84-85mph is the norm.

Question About Beretta Potential

A well driven 3.1 5spd can hit 15.8-15.9.  I saw a couple of stock 3.1's with 130k+ run 15.9's.  

A 3400 5spd with headers, intake, full 2.5" exhaust and UDP and chip should hover around 14.0.  If you add an LSD and drag radials high 13's.

more power, but secret

You can also use a 3.4 stroker kit which will physically look like a 3.1.  Then with a cam and chip that should give you a substantial gain in power over stock, like 30-40hp.  Add a ported and polished top end with upgraded springs and retainers and you are at 50+hp.

more power, but secret

I ran a custom chip for a couple of years.  I doubt they would have any way of knowing.  It should be worth 5-8whp and a higher redline and require a better grade of fuel.  Stay away from Jet or hypertech, they wont do anything.  Get a chip from Ben on 60degreeV6, he knows how to...

Beretta Turbo Updates

2.4x  60ft shows there is a lot of room for improvement.  2.1-2.2 60 fts on some air downed stickier tires should net you a 15.0-15.2.

Is anyone still here?

Still here.  Beretta-less for a year as I built up my Viggen.  Then decided instead of putting it through winters on snow tires why not just get a Beretta for winter instead and to keep the miles down.

Wound up with a 3.1 5spd 89 GT with digi cluster, Z seats and Indy wheels.
