ha, that reminds me of when i had my first mod, the injen short ram intake, and i ran a 17.2....BOO...but anyways good job man, nice numbers compared to my intake at first. but anyways, get headers and downpipe like i did, i tell ya freeing up your exhaust system to let it breath better will improve your numbers, it sure feels like it did for me... im guessing 15.5 with all the crap i got on mine now

you could also probably take the system out when you run it and cut a couple .10's off making it high 15's low 16's

you also just need to get the shifting down...but that will only come with more runs and knowing what you did when you go the lower time...and just repeat what you did with the best results...good luck man

i had a 16.2 with homemade intake, udp, 65mm tb, n shortshifter..get those things and you should be good for now, and the engine sounds real stout cuz you got lots of air goin in and get a hum from the pullies.(better than the loud azz exhaust i have now)

That's also the best I managed to do last summer with my Volant intake. Talk about disappointment!
I try 7 or 8 runs. With more practice, I hope to do better.

What is the best RPM to shift at? I've heard 5000, 5500 and now 6000 from him. Which is it because if you short shift or over rev it's gonna hurt your time.
