Default '01 SC1 Performance

Hey guys, I recently purchased a '01 SC1 with 69K.

It was female 1 owner owned.

She put on a CAI, some type of Hi-Po Muffler (that sounds pretty sweet), and then some visuals such as white face guages, and some hot chrome windshield wipers.

I don't know much about these cars, other than they are pretty peppy for a 1.9L I4.

What kind of numbers/times do these cars produce stock, and what kind of increased do you think I have over stock with my mods?

(one last thing,, what are some cars I can take out if i were to ever feel the urge to line up with something?)

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Wrench Re: '01 SC1 Performance

a stock 2001 SC1 makes 100 hp. with a AEM cold air intake and Thermal RD cat-back exhaust you may have an added 10-12 hp. S3 (Speed Style Sound) magazine tested a 2001 SC1 before and after those mods and that's approximately the increase in power they got.

That much? Everyone on here says you're lucky to get that much out of those mods on a DOHC.

Here is a link to a thread with lots of other helpful links. There's a lot of info on here for newbies, and some cool sites. One site has a quarter mile calculator. You plug in your estimated hp, and vehicle weight, and it gives you an estimated quarter mile time. Plug in the info for other cars, and you can get an idea what you can beat and what you can't. There are differences between transmissions, and driving skill, so it's not 100%, but it will give you an idea.

Yea, I know the cars are'nt meant to be fast.

My friends got a '99 Mustang GT with some mods,, I know he'll molest me unmercilessly, so i've decided not to even bother, but i was just interested in some HP numbers...

thanks,

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

The hp to weight ratio with our cars is better than a lot of other cars, so even if it's just 10hp increase, it makes a lot more difference than 10hp in a Mustang.

actualy if u do some suspension mods (all u would need is the rear sway bar from a dohc really) u would be able to be really close to him on the auto cross track.

i have the dohc (but handling matters more than power) and at my very first auto-x i got 2nd by 0.108 to a 06 mustang gt driven by a pro stock-car driver. 3rd place, who i beet by 0.8 was a 500hp 300zx. only mods i had at the time was a sri and front and rear strutbars (on struts and springs with 175k on them lol)

Yeah, with a SOHC be happy with what you got. The DOHC starts off much better (124hp) and has more room for improvment. I've got an '02 SC1, and all I did was a K&N drop-in, because I always do, and a Dynomax muffler for deeper sound. The rest of my mods were for looks mostly, althugh with the wheels/tires, and Eibach springs, handling was improved too.

If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find him, maybe you can hire Uzzy.
