Even with an automatic, you ought to be running mid 17's...I got 17.556 with my 99 2.0L, bone stock, and I would say that at the time, I didn't really know what I was doing. My suggestion is, work on your shifting to improve your times.
modify the driver before the car.
you do have mods..so power isn't the problem. you should be able to break out of the 18's. what 60 foot you running? 330 foot? 1/8th mile? 1/4 mile? what's your MPH at the end of the 1/4? give us more information and maybe you can use that to *your* advantage.
