so are you granny shifting then? letting completely off the gass between shifts and totally putting your foot to the floor on the clutch pedal?

The "average" SVT puts down around 140-150whp, there are SVT's that put down less.

The compression ratio on our motors varies between 10.2 and 10.6 Ford decided to call it 10.25 ( as a "safe" number) Thats why some engines are stronger than others.

There are so many other factors in why he ran so slow, he could have the RLAx tune instead of the newer ones, he could have the malfunctioning DSI... where the O rings become dislodged and partially block the injectors, he could have had bad gas, alot of clutch slippage or even tire spin... slow reaction time, granny shift, not running it all the way out before shifting, slow shifting.... the reasons are numerous.
