I power shifted but im still not understanding my times compared to yours...My mods are

K&n filter, taylor wires, STS, massive dogbone, SVT header, cat and flex no wrapped yet, EGR delete but not all lines are capped off to the DPFE sensor, full 2.5" exhaust all the way back, 65mm TB and toms tune on both 87 and 93 octane I didnt notice any difference...I actually trapped 1.5 mph higher on the 87 lol wtf....

my times were....

60ft 2.56
330ft 7.013
1/8 10.72
MPH 67.17
1000ft 13.90
1/4 16.61
MPH 83.03

I shifted at 6k every run with my shifting into 4th at the end of the track.

Our over all 1/4 times are the same with you having 1mph more but look at our 1/8....please someone explain that to me

ya thats why im pissed lol... houston altitude is around 50ft above sea level. Im not sure what exactly could possibly be holding my car back besides the SVT cat, header not being wrapped and this engine code P2195 which is 02 sensor is stuck in lean mode....

The 02 sensor is probably your culprit. I know for a fact if I had those mods it would be very fast. well, not very fast. my first race was up against a 9.77 second bike. lol what intake do you have, stock zetec with k&n filter? or the whole setup.

^^underoath rev that bad boy out. Rev limiter is 6700 rpm, I've netted 88mph due to taken it all the way up to it or near it. You lose time on the 3-4th shift, no matter how fast you shift when your foots on the clutch your not accelerating anymore. And besides this the only way I can run the times I run, I've had lots of runs to get it down.


We so have to go race each other.

YOU sir, need an intake. at this point I can't believe you havent already tossed out the old junk and either installed the svt intake or a big aem Cold Air Intake. It makes a world of difference, and your not reaching your full potential of your other mods.

I just changed my trans fluid and put in Amsoil full synthetic ATF; it was easy to do and runs beautifully. There is a writeup for that! Wrapping the header takes some time, you don't need some brand new in box DEI Titanium Header Wrap, do you? I have 2x50' I am looking to sell, its nothing but the best.

Do you run to 6700 every shift? I see many dyno sheets that say power apex's at 5 and drops after that. wouldn't one want to keep it closer to that?
