I cant't powershift @ 7100 RPM in my zx3 or my zx5 Sorry could'nt resist. On the streets my lanches & shift points are different than my SVT. I have surprised a few v8s with my zx's.

14.7? What mods? Thier is no way a STOCK SVTF is running 14.7s Are you sure they corrected the times correctly? Also, jfyi, corrected times are a educated guess at what you would run under realtive temps and humidity at sea leval. What were your uncorrected times and evavation, temps and things?
