So my car is sopost to be about 7-8 second 0-60. Ever since i bought it from the previous owner, its done about 10-14 seconds 0-60. Just got the transmission rebuilt entirely and now its weaker than ever doing about 20-30 seconds 0-60. Can anyone tell me why and what can i do to get running better?

No clue, have you talked to the shop that rebuilt the trans?

Take it back to the tranny shop, that sounds like the clutches are slipping way too much you will burn the fluid really fast. I would also recommend that is your running it like that you should put on a tranny cooler and bypass the one in the radiator.
