Not really, no. A tune will drop a couple tenths total. The weight is according to how much you take out. 100 lbs=1/10th. So with a tune, and minus 300 lbs you can drop a half of a second. That would put you at the number (close to) you want, only problem is where you gonna pull out 300 lbs?

i can drop a good hundred or so pounds...

that also doesnt make up for crappy tires which spun like no other...replaced with g-force sports

exhaust leaks fixed...massive power drain, replaced with 2.5 instead of 2.2 inch exhaust

stock cat replaced...with high flow cat

i think everything ive done since then added up...i could take a half second off.

unfortunately i dont get a LOT of time at a track. so my driving isnt perfect. but i should be able to do it.

With my SVT on stock new continentals, CAI, UDPs, mbrp exhaust and short shifter, I ran 9.6s and launched at about 1700 with little tire spin. Anything about 2000 or higher and it wheel hopped like you wouldn't believe.

I can't imagine dumping the clutch at 5300
