    Ya with a few bolt on's that can be easily done. 12's can be easy with the right bolt on's.

    would i be better off manual shifting or just letting the tranny shift itself...i was inconsistent with my times but i was manual shifting the auto...i think with what i got i should be faster than 13.8

    Usually your faster just by letting it shift itself. Plus more consistant. Might give it a try next time. Also you need to consider the Air/Elevation. Your car might run faster according to the air density.
