1300 miles on it. Air/oil separator, KN CAI and nothing else (freakin Procal takes forever to get setup).

I've ignored This two times before. Stomping on it, but not hitting 6k rpm, I get a complete lag in power at the top of third. I've been rowing for 17 years, this ain't the tranny, but I am wiliimg to hear any thoughts. 0-60 happens before I know it, but a qtr would be embarrassing here. Not sure if I have hit it real hard yet and NoT seen this.

I've noticed that if you give it too much gas when shifting and re-engage the clutch that it will cut power, kinda like speed shifting really, if that's what you're talking about then it's mostly traction control doing that

Nvm OP, just Reread your post, doesn't seem to be your issue at all

Thanks. I turn traction control off when I start her up. Hopefully a tune solves this issue

Thanks, will have it
Tuned before the end of the week. I strongly suggest turning off traction control. You don't get all your power with it on. The system draws down power on either wheel when it senses spin and both if necessary.

Alot of people talk about spinning thru first, but I haven't had that problem at all. Maybe i don't drive it hard enough, but I am
Still hauling a$$

You might just have a different gearing. I have 3.73 and i spin with it on lol. I have performance tires too. With it off i just sit and watch dollar signs fly

Yup, I do as well. I moderate the pedal when i feel it go loose, but maybe there is more to her than i am asking for. Thats a good problem to have... Means there is even more fun in her than I've already seen
