Obviously the tune, tb, header, etc... are going to drop your time, but I agree with everyone else that practice is the most important thing.

I can feel the tune made a huge difference but doubt a 15.9 of a difference.

we'll just have to wait and see. at least your tune helps you out lol, mine gave me more power but the wheelspin is ridiculous, i run about the same times. the....... things we can't talk about races is where it makes a difference.
