Suggestions/Advice

So, I'm racing this weekend at bandimere and it's a points race so there is only 2 test and tune runs before rounds begin and to eliminate some trial and error so I don't waste my 2 runs I need some advice on launch tire psi etc., Track is at 5800ft and DA is usually around 8000. before my car was stock running consistent 13.80/70's launching at 3000 with 22psi(any higher than 3k rpm spins like a mofo and 60ft goes to hell) in the stock pirellis. now I have boss intake, x pipe and a bama 91 race tune. Should I continue with the same methods? Ideas?

Why try to run on street tires. Get some racestars with some bias ply tires and luanch the car like it wants to. With the boss intake car is going to bog off line. They like being launched at 5000+ rpms.

Race stars are the plan, just no money yet. For now I gotta work with these damn pirellis.

Yeah last week my buddy's dad told me that street tires don't do good when heated up and to just chirp them, I thought to myself "this guy know what he's talking about?" after a few unsuccessful runs I decided what the hell and did a nasty 2nd gear burn out and they stuck really well, I only sit on them for about 5 seconds, maybe I should heat them up more?
