Ecu+pulleys= 0-60?

HI, i am pretty sure i will be putting in the aa pulleys and ecu together. i know they offer gains in both hp and tq, but wondering if there is any noticebale gain in terms of times?
has anybody tried there's out.
assuming that a 6mt e92 stock runs 0-60 in a conservative 4.6 secs, would one with just ecu and pulleys be any quicker, how much?
i drove with m3 montreal, and he was noticeable quicker from a rolling start, but he has more work done.
thanks again
not looking to drag the car, more curiosity.
also how does the powerchip compare to the aa chip///

That's a good question. I wonder how much of a difference it would make

exactly what i was wondering, i know it definitely feels faster, but how does that translate into tangible performance...anyone with this work can you chime in.
i assume a good airfilter would be a logical add-on at this time.

Agreed, you will most likely see bigger gains in the 0-60 area if you simply use a fatter tire like a 285 or bigger.

As a rough rule, 10hp would equate to about 0.1 sec in the 1/4 mile, so I would guess around 2-3 tenths with those mods.

This is why I started my 1/4 mile time thread. That's the difference I'm interested in seeing, not dyno numbers.

1 tenth is about 1/2 car length.
