      Told you at the meet, this is never ever going to happen with the LLO hahah. If you want 13's N/A sell the car now, because you'll always be mid to low 15's.

      Also, those wheels from Joe really look nice on there. I didn't know you were picking them up so quick hahah.

            14's are very possible, and have been done before. Hell if I wasn't on huge tall and heavy tires the other Friday, mine would have been in the 14's fairly easy.

              You can add some nitrous (best bang for the buck) for pretty cheap considering and reach 13's on a stock engine w/bolt ons. Gotta say I liked the car color before but I always liked that dark green metallic, looked like the paint was in damn good shape too.

                          I broke a valve cover bolt in the head yesterday pretty bad so I took it to R and S struass to have them remove it tap and re-thread the hole. They did it did fine except they snapped my cold air intake off then when I said something to the manager before anyone could go anywhere the mechanic runs onto the sales floor yelling at me bout "how he works on tunerkids cars and they always claim he broke or did something wrong" On the floor after an hour and 1/2 I gave up on them fixing it. My lawyer even got on the phone and explained to them I will file a claim and they still didn't do anything. I luckily took pictures this morning for the site of what I messed up and happen to get the cai in the pictures they claim I broke it between here and there a whole 2 block literally "my engine most have twisted and done it." Pictures posted tomorrow hopefully.

                              those wheels def look good on there. The stock paint on there looked ok, i think i woulda left it, but it's your car. Looks like stuff is coming along quite well for ya.

                              I think with a stong build +N20 13's can be reached no problem. A custom intake mani with direct port would be a big help though.
