If your pcm is stock I would not keep it idling because the pcm will pull timing above a certain temp, and when I was stock pcm I saw some pretty high temps.

Sounds good! I have a JRE tune so I'm not sure what he did as far as pulling timing above a certain temp.

You could ask him. My tune is set up so my fans come on sooner, so I never even get close to the max temps I saw stock.

With my tune, I will see my temps cycle from say 201 back down to 194 as I am driving back down the return road and picking up my time slip. So I tend to run 2 back to back passes if there is no line.

Besides the ECTas related to the fans, the AITs are greatly affected if you are going to keep the car running. Ted most likely did not make any changes to timing AIT.
Power is reduced startings at 84+F.
So shut it down?

Sounds good. Thanks for the info.

This thread is very informative!

I've never done a strip run, and would like to -didn't know the basic rules.

Hey Guy's, any advice for ideal take off with stock pirelli's with my setup, run out of money so tryin stocks before drag radials go on, it's my first time this weekend with this car at brand new track in my area which will have track bite on it. My tune will bang each gear as hits redline but obviously I will have serious traction issues. What PSI is ideal for the pirellis & how long should I take to roll throttle on for some sort of traction off the line or can I just let it spin till it hooks next gear & (prob 3rd) gains traction?

Kiwi if you are on stock tires you'll probably have to ease it off the line so as not to spin for a couple car lengths.

Well just done first drag meet in this car, you weren't joking bout those street tires, couldn't get it to hook up till mid of third gear, had Pzero's down to 15PSI, but some heat in them actually worked a bit, 0-60ft terrible 2.1-2.2 sec, got it down still to a 12.3 sec @120mph, so hopefully with drag radials should see a good mid 11 hopefully next time.

I think that's pretty good for stock tires.

Drag radials will make racing more enjoyable. Rather than you holding back on getting into the throttle you should be able to get into it pretty quick though I doubt you will hook just stomping on the gas. You have a converter too? You must be making 550-600rwhp?

This is my D/D so stock converter here, staying that way as gas is really expensive here, haven't had car dynoed yet but tuner says should be good for 600rwhp with my combo, only suspension mod is cradle bushing inserts which seem to do a good job, haven't experienced wheel hop yet & I think I should disconnect aftermarket sway in front next time too. I will be sticking with 20" so will be a restriction there as well, hoping to get Nitto's 275/40R20 NT555R's next.
