How would my car do in a 1/4 mile

How would my car do in a 1/4 mile
I was just wondering what times my car would run in a 1/4 mile

1998 Jeep Cherokee Sport (2 Door)
Automatic Transmission
K&N FIPK Cold Air Intake
Magnaflow Highflow Cat
Fixed Yoke Output with CV drive shift
Flowmaster Super 40s Muffler
But then i also have 33" tires and a 6" lift (which may slow me down)

If anyone has any idea what my car might do in a 1/4 mile let me know...

Also im not really sure what a fixed yoke output with CV drive shift is and what it does so if anyone knows that also let me know...


Thanks

With those tires and lift.......17s if you are lucky and at a great track.

Stock tires and suspension, with those mods I say high 15s to low 16s.

I'm willing to bet those engine upgrades will barely -- if at all -- offset the performance loss from those tires/ lift.

Why would you track time a lifted Jeep in the first place? That's like asking "how would my lowered Honda Civic do at Moab?"

my 96 with the typical go-mods with 2" lift and 29" wheels did 15.2 secs.

I would put yours at 16-17 seconds.

Why would you resurrect a thread from 5 years ago?

Also... because it's fun. I'll race a minivan if the opportunity presents itself.

I couldn't even imagine speed-testing my Wrangler because of the lag. Don't know if it's just me but the Jeep is asking questions before it goes. I could put the pedal to the floor at a complete stop and it takes about 2 seconds before I get any real acceleration. Is that just me?

Damn straight. I used to race my old '91 Chevy Lumina on test and tune nights for fun often, and I raced my mom's Chrysler Town and Country one night (17.7 with a really crappy launch).
