If your MPH improved, it probably wasn't the motor mount so much as the air.
My time slip is only a couple pages back. It was 16.5 @88mph. Our stock mounts are garbage and you can really tell the difference in the shifts.

Where do you go to race? Speedworld or Firebird?

I preferred speedworld due to how many runs you could get in, but now I have no choice other than firebird. Speedworld just got closed down.

No kidding! It takes forever to run at Firebird. Last time I went out I got 2 runs in in 3 hours. Yeah, that bad.

Hey Travis, I noticed that I had a better 60 ft and 1/8th than you, but you still beat me in the 1/4 mile. I guess I need to figure out a way to get more top end without sacrificing my low end. Hmmm.

Do you have a plug in tune or dyno tune? Stick it on a dyno and see whats going on.

Tom's tune(remote or plug in). I would like to get a real dyno tune after my next mod or 2.

90 MPH trap?? Nice!
Only a MM and a drop-in? What kind of gas... 91+ Oct? I'm assuming you had a fair amount of wheel spin... 90 mph trap speed indicates that the car should be capable of mid to low 15's IIRC (It's been awhile since I've drag raced so I may be off... correct me if I'm wrong)

15.8 is what MotorTrend squeezed out of a '12 SE with the 5 speed but a little more grip and a few more tenths could be shaved off.
