Not at all, ive got plenty of videos of a turbo fox i built where it went 9.40 at 143 then a 9.30 at 146, then a 9.20 at 152 only thing changed was tire pressure so it would hook better, all done at 14psi on pump gas, 5speed car

I have never ever seen that to be the case. I have seen several cars do like 12.0 then 11.8 then 11.5 and run the same mph and in some cases loose mph as they loose ET. If you are picking up mph then the car is making more power. maybe it was heat soaked before and it cooled down longer, or he had to wait less in the staging lanes or the air was changing.

NOPE none of the above, waited 45 minutes each run and was in the staging lanes the same amount of time as they let him bi run everytime, it was all off of wastegate spring so there was no fluctuation in boost

Also got it all on video so there no BS

Correct me if I am wrong, but I think it is a GT3082?

What tires where you running on? Can you post the timeslip?
