Wink First time at track w/ 14 GT/CS auto

Basically just a $99.00 canned tune from Justin @ VMP. Car had 3/4 tank of gas less the crap in the truck. It CAT scaled at 3680 plus my 230 = 3910 race weight. Weather 49 degrees. Two back to back 12.4's. Track is at 1500 elevation btw.

Thanks Man, just seems my trap was down from what I was expecting in high 40 degree air. Probably an offroad x and retune would help that I guess...?

Trap speed is a little low but the times are pretty good. An off road x-pipe might be worth 2-3 tenths which will put you close to 11's which is good for a stock converter car.

You know, it might just be the track. My tuned 13 SHO never ran better than 102.xx. It was in the 12.9's, but trap off like 3-5 mph too. Strange. Need to go to MoKan.

Just did a Wallace Racing calculator to figure MSA corrected at sea level based off same weather conditions. 12.25 @ 113.77 (makes sense)


I got the first and fourth run of the day with fresh glue sprayed. Car just barely spinned off idle and on the 1-2 shift. Great track prep actually. So if I spinned more my ET would have suffered, but trap speed would have been higher. I'll take the better ET.

Nice times! I have the same car so it's kind of cool to see what it's capable of. How did you launch? Did you foot brake it and stall it up, or did you leave off idle and mash it?

I REALLY want to tune mine but my motor just turned 1,100 miles on it. I'm too scared the motor could develop a tick or something after the first oil change so I don't know if I want to throw the powertrain warranty out the window yet. Can't wait to have it tuned, it's killing me

Since your car has merely 1100 miles on it, I'd suggest you check out PedalMax from JMS. It is basically plug and play, with to connection to OBD 2 whatsoever. Granted it's not equivalent to getting an aftermarket tune, but none the less it be warranty friendly.

Very nice. I need to go to the track someday. Looks like a blast. I wish we had one around here close, all though I know I'd make a fool of myself and run some horrible 20 second run.

Yeah I definitely have been reading up on the PedalMax. It seems like a worthwhile mod for our cars. I also like that it can be used in conjunction with a tune once I decide to take the plunge.

Mine had a tune at 700 miles. Has had probably 30-40 1/4 mile runs already (in Mexico). My best run was off idle. Way too easy with auto. Really I was just hoping to break into the 12's. Lol.

Just tune it. It's not so much the peak power gains, but the shifting and raised shift points greatly improve the performance. Plus the added torque off the bottom gets it out of the hole hard on launch. No comparing to flabby soft oem tune. Jmo.

1/4 ET's

Best I've run is 12.9, with Stock tires and BBK shorty headers.
In three trips to the strip, I've posted runs of
13.4 and 13.1 Late July temps low 80's
13.18 and 13.02 Late August Temps low 70 Same track as previous runs
Elevation 1300 ft
13.07, 13.8 and 12.9 Different track , three weeks ago, temps in upper 50's
1400 ft elevation BAD wheel hop on second run.
I was happy to break into twelves. Getting pro cal this week, may try saturday if the weather holds out. Track closes 11/15.
Car goes away for winter as well. Will be working on slicks and lower control arms over the winter and possibly adjustable front struts.

Drag radials and or slicks help out the manual cars a lot. The auto's can actually get into the low 12's on street tires.
