Not sure but I think something is wrong, I'm not an SVT owner but I do drag race every weekend. I also am running mid 14's with a stock 2.0 on a 50 shot of nitrous and drag radials?!? You should be faster than me I think by like a half second to full second.

Are you getting a lot of tire spin of the line. These cars are tricky off the line. Not enough gas you bog to much gas then the tires spin. You might want to practice some more. I've never raced my SVT. So I can't say I'm an expert on the matter. Just my 2 cents. Good luck!

Try working on your launch David, your 60 ft times need improvement. What tires and psi are you running? Maybe get a set of drag tires or lower the pressure a bit in the tires you have now.

Another thing your 330ft times are too slow. I'm getting a 6.4 on a non FI motor. Read the SIG for power.
