Only 13.3, but I did get some information. My timing advance was never above 15 degrees so all power I had was gone. My IAT's were almost 100 degrees on a 50 degree night. I'll post some more information later.

Here are the timeslips. First 3 runs I was in the left lane against a 392 Hemi Challenger twice, and a truck the last time. Last 2 runs are against my Wife and her Mustang. The last run my tires were spinning and my wife actually got sideways in her Mustang from no traction.

I took my Subwoofer box out trying to lighten my car but I may need it to launch, seems like my car launches harder on public roads with it in.

Going to leave the current tunes in there till I run again. The first run after loading the C7 tune my AFR spiked to 14:1 during WOT. By the time I was going home it was at 12:1, so the computer learned.

Of course today when I datalog my Timing is 19 degrees. I relocated the IAT sensor after the intercooler behind the passenger fog light. Before it was just before the throttle body behind the radiator, the sensor may have been heatsoaked from the hot air being blown on it by the fans.

I'm also getting a burst knock right when I hit peak torque. I remember Ted from Jannety racing saying that the highest cylinder pressure will be at peak torque, so I have no clue how to really fix that. I don't know if its from detonation or some noise.

I may or may not go to the track this Friday, but I will be going on the 18th since my parents want to watch me and my wife race again.

In the mean time, here is a picture a friend took while I was leaving the line.

Can't, I'm a government contractor and I had to use all my vacation during the shutdown. I won't have vacation time till July. Wish I could, things didn't work out this year.

Think he was new, he stalled the car the second run. By the end of the night he broke something, had to get pushed off the track.

They kept putting me in the left lane. The minute I take the camera off they get me in the right lane.

Would have been boring videos anyways, I finished first all 5 times.

Car is running strong still, going to keep trying to get into the 12's. Best thing is 5 months and 0 stalls.

Interesting morning, started the car and had a message saying the engine was overheated. Oil temp said 210, coolant said nothing. Shut the car down and verified the fluid levels and connections. I disconnected the battery and reconnected after 10 minutes and the coolant temp was reading fine again.

Computers suck.

Do you have any of the spacers on?...Just put mine on the dyno and wonder if adding those would help without causing issues.

I have both spacers on. I don't think it makes a difference in boost, just from 1000 to 3500 RPM's.

Car is still running good, going to the track Friday. Right now I'm running V60C1C10 ECU with Trifecta TCU tunes. Getting parts for a Methanol kit right now, I'm going to put the IAT before the TB and the Meth Nozzle right after the intercooler. The colder the air the more timing the ECU adds, and the Methanol should allow me to run more timing without knock retard going on.

Time to get rid of this knock and see what she can really do. I'm going to guess 5.3 @ 250 MPH.

I'm pretty sure once you hit 88 MPH your going to end up back in 1956.

Got the meth kit installed, never doing it again, what a PITA. Made runs with 375 ml/min, saw my IAT in the 30 degree range in boost, was able to run some decent timing. Thought that maybe it wasn't being atomized enough so I went down to 175 ml/min and my IAT wasn't as low and I lost a degree of timing. Going to try 650 ml/min now in a while. The computer wants to do 21 degrees of timing but detonation is preventing it, might not have enough Methanol in the mix. May have to do an upgrade to dual nozzle, one after the intercooler to mix everything, 1 before the IAT to lower the temps.

Was spraying too much Meth at the track and had misfires. Also got a CEL from IAT low voltage because the Meth was running down the sensor probe wires into the connector. I switched back to the 375 ml/min nozzle and right now, ZERO Knock Retard. Engine is running 20 degrees of timing at full boost. Going to try to go back to the track Friday night, see how it will do.

I'll be here, I'm trying to get more practice in since that is killing me right now. Wouldn't rush it though, family is a lot more important.

I also did a datalog today and saw that my RPM in 1st gear registered 7,234 RPM's, so the rev limiter is working correctly. 1st gear was clear of knock retard but I had a slight one at the very end of 2nd gear, so I increased the meth injection just a hair. The gas station that normally sales 10% ethanol looks like they went 100% gas, the sticker isn't there anymore. I'm stuck with 100% gas now so I got the meth kit in time.

Meth kit was worth the cost now. I can tell I'm running 100% gas now because my LTFT's went from positive 6% to negative 10%. Usually my timing is at 10 degrees with over 8 degrees of knock retard, now it is 20, 19, 18 (lowers as the IAT's increase) with 1.5 degrees of knock retard. I'm hesitant to swap nozzles until I run the car at the track, I want to get a read on it. I'm going to do a dual nozzle upgrade though, set one nozzle right after the intercooler to cool the air as much as possible, then the nozzle where it is now for detonation control.

Going to post pictures tonight of the kit. I went with the stage 2 one, wish I got stage 3 for the digital controller. The analog one sucks.

You should see what regular v6's run at the track here, you would shoot yourself.

Its all in the timing, I was running 14.1 @ 103 on 100% gas, went to 13.3 @ 107 by reducing half the knock retard with 10% ethanol gas. Now with meth I'm running almost full timing with 100% gas.
