does anyone have timeslips? it seems the sevilles are doing high 14's/low 15's. i took my deville dts to the track and could only get a 15.5@91. are sevilles faster than devilles? has anyone taken their deville to the track? it felt like my car was bogging more than usual before 50mph.

i also tried pulling the airfilter and there was no change so it looks like i'll be keeping the stock one

I think the seville has lower gearing then the deville. I'm not positive on how much lower though.

The Seville is a bit lighter, no?

Regarding weight:


Apples to Apples:

01 DTS 4047lb 01 STS 4027


vs. 1996 STS 3869lbs. interestingly enough, the pre 98 Sevilles weigh less...

38? Somehow that seems low, considering my 97 is 48 thou..maybe i just got a fat one? (oh, runs 14.7 with mufflers)

They have the same gearing. The only gearing diff is between 300hp and 275hp versions.

Here's my timeslip for the Aurora. It's "T66":

My ETC weighs in at around 3815 + about 60 for the subs & floor jack. Ran a 16.4@87.5 with a density altitude over 7000 feet so corrected to sea level it would be about a 14.77@96.23.
