be happy w/your time w/that motor b/c thats pretty good! if you want faster, start savin for a new motor, or go cheap way and piece by piece, like a adjustable cam gear, si intake manifold swap, si tranny swap, but that will just up your rice quotient up a lot and your time wont go down much more. My advice depending on how deep your pockets are drop a d16z6 sohc vtec in w/an si tranny or b16 or any other motor besides the dx b/c dx's just suck, no way around it. or shoot some juice in it if youre really craving that instant gratification.

would people lay off apc already? I mean sure, their shit is not of the highest quality, but do you suggest someone who makes better stuff that is as readily available? Something you could try to improve your 1/4 mile times is put your stocks on the front because less torque is required to turn a smaller rim and the bigger profile helps with launch. But like zcmadman said, you shouldnt be bitching at all 16.7 is pretty good. I suggest the motor swap is the way to go if you really want to go faster.

no name sway bars and stuff are usually pretty good or w/some riggin can be great, but i quit saying junk bout rice stuff b/c people who love rice love their rice and it was their money they already spent, but just dont buy any more and dont like put SUPER STREET or APC on your front window and ill still talk to you, but when i see rangers and crap w/ SUPER STREET or APC on their fonr window then that just makes me laugh and then feel bad for the chap that wasted their time and money on it. if apc offered me a sponsorship for my car id turn it down b/c they dont got anything i want
