Your 93 SE 5spd should be in the mid 16's if I'm not mistaken. You just have to learn how to launch and what not.

you'll run 16.7 if you can drive it well..if not 16.9...but if you dont just shoot yourself..by all means you should..gut the car to make sure..but you should be at 16.9 no problem

weight saving and high octane fuel along with a good launch would put you under 17, hope he didnt say anything about taking major weight out of your car

Under 17 should be easy. My auto with pulley, short ram intake, GReddy (was installed the day before so ECU was not adjusted) ran 17.2

If you're still not sure, get black SWA pulley, they're not noticible at all, no one will ever knew you had one..

Taking out weight is a free way to faster.

A full tank of gas is about 100 lbs.
The spare tire is about 25 lbs.
Running on half a tank and taking out the spare saves you about 75 lbs. Floor mats is another 15 lbs. So now you just removed 90 lbs. Do you have tools in your trunk? Are you running a sub? Removing those items can save another 25+ lbs.

15lbs! i don't know man... sounds like too much weight for just floormats... well, unless you have steal/aluminum floor mats.

Your friend is either incredibly dumb or just has too much money. Usually people bet a car can't run decent times.......A 17 second car doesn't belong at the track. But take his money.

You're supposed to drain the melted snow out BEFORE you weigh them.... :D
