Thanks, I am pretty happy with the results. I was up against an early 2000's Camaro SS w/ some mods on the 12.96 run.

Nice, I am going back to the drag strip next month. I am hoping to get a 12 second pass, but I am doubtful.

Good times at that boost and knowing the tune is not dialed yet.

nice work. whats your target afr at full boost? would you mind posting your spark table? i am currently at 235whp but i dont know if ill be able to hook up with my 205 tires. i am running a 6speed and have traction issues in 1 -3.... is track traction way different than the street? (never been to a drag strip but planning on going soon)

I usually target 12.0-12.2 at 12 psi. I am about to add water injection, so I will probably get more aggressive with spark. 205's will hook fine if the track is worth a crap. My car spins all the way through 1st and 2nd on the street and sometimes gets a slight bit of spin in 3rd but traction at the drag strip was not an issue. I have a 5 speed with a 4.3. Here is my current spark table.
