sweet 1/4 mile time for a 2.0l duratec

ok guys las night i was at the track,my first run was a 16.2@86 mph,next run was a 16.09@86.9 mph,third run i thought i would smoke the tires a bit and launch around 4000 rpm instead of my usual 2500 rpm,well it did the trick pulled out a 15.79 at 87.35 mph,best time yet,first run i beat a 97 accord,second run i blew away a crx by a second and a half,and his entire interior was missing lol!!!,third run i lost to a buick regal supercharged,like i didnt see that coming! it was all good i still pulled out my best time yet.not too bad for a 2.0 L duratec with a mbrp exhaust and short ram intake?

i will keep ya posted on updated times
oh and i found the car works best shifting at 6000 rpm,and going through the traps in 4th gear not third.
