Today was dry and I took the long way into work this morning. I was logging part-throttle and WOT for Ryan, and I noticed on one hit when the converter locked, that was pretty cool. I also noticed more that the car really doesn't have that tip-in bog it just rips. Also the idle does not surge and roll, even when coming to a sudden stop.

Log sent to Mr. L99.

Thanks but I'm no tuner, but I can make changes if I know what to change.

Car feels good, though skinnies and 3.91's would make it feel even better.

Maybe I need to keep Camarojt (Jeff?) on his toes and stay with stock internal next year though right now I'm hardly a threat.

Come join in John, the more the Merrier! I'm stuck at the moment between waiting on Great DA and my days off from work and then a baby coming in the next month or so.

You should be able to easily hit 11's with Rhinos tuning and good air. Even without skinnies. He took me from right about where ur at to 11.90 but also Switched out to an ADM Race intake with scoop.

Yeah so 62nalide went 11.91 with skinnies, Don C (Lethal customer I have met) went 11.94 SI with skinnies with his 45th SS so I'm thinking a very high 11.9 might be possible. Don had decent air but didn't have a modified intake like the RC one I'm running.

Your first kid? So much fun. I have two boys 6 and 8. They are the big reason I stepped away from heads up racing for a several years. But I'm back in it.

With that 11.91 I am tap shifting it and not 100% perfect. So don't be surprised if you can hit the same time or better! I need to make time and flash in the new TCM tune I've had in my email for 2weeks now smh. I'm shifting into 2nd @6400ish and 3rd around 5800ish after the converter locks.
I am pretty sure you'd see 11.90s forsure!

On D it'll spin up to 6400, I have to tap shift it @ 5700 to get it in 6K..... Kind of hard to log and flash the tunes due to work and I only Drive the car like 2 times a month lol. I will make some time to flash the latest TCM file. Other problem is that I have a MacBook and can't download EFI-Live which is my fault really. But I love how the car runs and pulls!

Hey John, if all goes well tomorrow with my car, me and some people are heading for Byron Sunday! I had a nightmar with my flex plate, so I think! Had to pull the car apart again and use a TCI flex plate. Hopfully I will be all good now. Good luck with the Tune, I bet you hit that 11 now! That guy is working wonders on these cars!
