tracks change all the time, sensor get dust and dirt on and in them if a track doesnt maintain this, it will lead to faulty times

Thanks everyone.
I do agree I need more seat time.
I left off racing an '03 Mach 1 with ET Streets, so this torquey FWD with street tires is killing me.
That first gear is by far the hardest part.

I also forgot to mention my car has a trailer hitch on it that adds a few pounds, and not in a good place.

After analyzing my data logs I determined I need a significant upgrade to my intake cooling.
At about 10psi on the street I see up to 28 #/min of air at 6K RPM at 80* F intake temps.
Same psi at the track I would only see 26.5 #/min of air at 6K RPM, but at a whopping 125* F by the end of the 1/4.
Clearly I have some terrible heat soak going on, and the car is losing around 15-20hp due to that heat.

My air filter is under the hood, behind the passenger headlight, sharing air space with the engine.
Typical driving it doesn't seem to matter, but wow at the strip it makes a huge difference.
Once I get the air temps down where they should be 13's should come easy.

There are 2 things I'm doing for certain and some others I'm considering to help.
First I've already cut my bumper cover to get more air to the intercooler.
Second I'm going to route some ducting to the filter.
I'm also going to look into wrapping some piping, and also replacing the passenger headlight with a custom horn to route air straight to the filter (track only).
Lastly, if all that doesn't do the trick there's always meth injection.

another thing you could do would be to move the air inlet to below the fog light area, lower and more air flow goes through there giving you better feed of fresh air. you can also remove the fog light down there aswell as will act as a ram air for it. this is what i have done with my FSwerks kit is just removed fog light to expose filter. has worked very well for me so far.
