Thanks guys,

I am going to be getting with Rhino hopefully within the next week or two and we will see where the tuning is at. I knew I needed drag radials...those are also in the works right now

Just a quick update...

I set up an appointment for the 17th to have Rhino tune my car. Definitely looking forward to getting everything set right.

My experience is somewhat the same I think

In February of this year I went while the DA was 559 and ran a 12.426 @ 114.33 with cam, ported heads, ported intake, ported TB, 1 3/4 headers, and stock coverter.

I went back in June with a DA of 2699 with everything listed above except with 1 7/8 headers and circle d 3200 stall and ran 12.618 @ 111.18

It sucked. I have lighter wheels and drag radials on the way but still don't expect extraordinary results right now.

Fall will be here before you know it.

Same and different I would say. Rohdeo's MPH seems low to me, and he's an M6 guy. So I don't know if he tried different shift points making sure he maxed out his combo. Conventional wisdom is to shift at or slightly after peak HP. IMO it's easy to experiment, since the driver decides when to shift. Sometimes low MPH is simply from shifting at too low an RPM.

For an A6 L99 guy, it can be the same problem but it takes more work to fix. I think Jeff's MPH for his combo is super low, though if he spun like a madman that will affect the MPH. I think the MPH can then end up being low, my theory is that is that when I spin a lot my car shifts 1-2 and 2-3 real fast and I end up spending time in higher less torque'y gears (that's my theory). But I don't have heads and cam and even when I would spin I ran the same MPH as yours. So I wonder if your shift points also need work. I'm finding that getting shift points right after a converter might take one or two tries.

When I made my last two runs (the two time slips above) I actually bounced off the rev limiter just a tad before shifting into 4th on the 12.628 run. On the other run (12.595 and the video above) I actually shifted a little earlier to get into 4th to see what it would do and if it would give me a little better time as opposed to shifting literally right before the end.

I felt like I was shifting pretty high to 2nd and 3rd, but I really didn't pay too much attention to the RPM's. To be honest, I think another part of my time issue is that the limiter wasn't adjusted at all when the cam was installed but without seeing a dyno slip it's hard to say where the power curve stops at or where I'm making my power.

Jeff, drag radials should help, I am working right now on a deal for some 18" z06 replica wheels and some nt05r's...hopefully I'll be hooking up much better soon.

I went a different direction on wheels. The replicas are around 24 lbs the wheels I found are a little lighter. I did however decide to go with Nitto NT-05R drag radials. Good luck at the track.

Rohdeo, look at Bad70Supreme, he's got a cam kinda like that and he's gone 12.3@115 or 116 MPH.

Well guys, I just got back home from driving out to have Rhino tune my car.

All I can say is that if you need a tuner he's the man to go to. It was about 150 miles out there and then another 150 back but it was worth every bit of it.

He talked to me through the whole process, told me what was going on while he was tuning and came out with some great results.

He took my car that was supposed to have been tuned from 443 hp and 412 tq and raised those numbers to 464 hp and 435 tq. That's a 21 hp and 23 tq increase... I'm definitely glad I had him look at it.

Anyway I'm ready for another trip to the strip to see what she can do but I do plan on waiting till a cooler day. Hopefully I see some more improvements in my times!

Try staging shallower and leaving on the last yellow or just as it turns off. gives you a better 60 and more top end. At least thats what I do...

Well, went back out to the track again and it went really well! I was very pleased with how my car did!

My best time of the night was a 12.217 @ 115.71 with a 1.938 60' and my first sub 8 second 1/8th mile at 7.971.

Very very happy with my tune from Rhino! I know there is more in it because I am getting the hang of launches which helps a ton.

The one issue I run into is topping out 3rd... I still top out right at the 1/4 now. Sometimes just a tad before. If I can bring down my 60' i should end up going faster at the end, so is there anything I can do other than getting gears that would remedy this?
