Well, let's start from the beginning. Back in June, I had a problem with some really bad track times, REALLY bad. Some people said tune, some said weather, some said exhaust. Well, I decided it was all three and to fix all three of em. :) So I got a custom tune on a SCT X3. And just yesterday, I put on an offroad Pro-Chamber (I'm LOVING it!!!). And the weather tonight was pretty good.

Back in June, I went 9.8x at 72.3ish. Tonight, (3 hours and 19 runs later...) I went 8.98 at 79.3. :banana: .8 seconds and 7 mph from a tune, midpipe, and good weather. :eek: Not too bad for a NPI headed, stock geared, street tire, auto GT. This is the happiest I've been since I bought the car. I had a goal to get it into the 8's, and 3 and a half years later, I met that goal.

Full information:

Sub box, spare tire, and jack removed

Custom Tune on SCT X3

As I've already overstated, I'm VERY pleased with my car. Hoping I can get a 13 out of it in the 1/4. :nice:

Congrats on the run :nice: It's amazing what a little seat time can do for times ;) Glad to see you met your goal to squeeze into the 8s

Heck yeah! Congrats Man, and thanks for the props! Maddox is the guy for the auto's. I call him the "10 and 2, press the gas" and go guy.

With that MPH, you still have some ET left in her. Keep at it:flag:

Yea, no doubt I could get another .1 or so out of it. I couldn't launch it as hard as I would like to. In warmer weather, I could launch it at a little over 2000; tonight, 1750 was all I could make stick. About 15 degrees warmer would have been perfect.

Yeah, saw that negative DA:eek: I'm surprised you hooked that well with the street tires. Nice job!

BTW, that midpipe is going to get you another .1-.2 in the 1/8, and a solid 1mph. Bumping the timing with either a tune or a timing adjuster will get you another .1-.2 in the 1/8 if you have not already done so.

Keep us updated!
