that's the time on slippery street tires. too much power for them. but add slicks and skinnies to the rear, there's no doubt this car can't get low 12's high 11's. remember there are some sr20de's with fmax turbo kits running 12's Right Jay! and this is a sr20ve with a kit .this guy must be loaded. wish I had the money for an M5 400 hp.
I was wondering what ever happened to Bubba Zinetti's project SR20VE. gotta love the drive! truly awesome.

This car is an Automatic SR20VE w/ FMAX kit , right? It has a Level 10 tranny in it. You would be surprised on how much power you will lose in an automatic. This car was in San Diego while my car was there back in Nov/Dec 1999. This car was shipped from the East Coast to Mike Smith where he built the bottom end and installed the turbo kit. Very nice looking setup, especially in person.
I met Carl Monopoli in July of '99 at Englishtown, pretty soon after he dropped the new V engine in his NX. He was running mid to high 15's that day or something and I remember asking him why his car was only as quick as mine (I had a '91 SE-R w/ just a couple bolt-ons at the time) and I flipped when I saw it was an automatic! That car hauls A$$

Yep that is carl and he did not even tell any of us up here in the NE that he was going to be in the rag. I dont know him personaly but some of my friend are pretty good friend with him. I was not even introduced at SF and stil have never met him. I live 45 min. from his house too.
That was what I was thinking. But remember 3 month lead time on the mag so that was probaly taken like in november. But yea he has a GTi-R scoop on the front of the hood now to cool the turbo. Check his page.
Just a comment: I like the fact that it LOOKS STOCK. No fancy (read: ugly) bodywork - no wings, no gaping "Shogun-syle-mouths" up front. Even the rims are not a stretch from factory Nissans. Yep, no need to cover up the "egg". We're NX owners...be proud!
