Depending on your experience and ability to launch correctly expect to see low 14's

14.2, with some seat time you should see high 12s.

In my opinion on launching with the 275's I wouldn't nessecarily rev low and dump the clutch because it will hook and bog the motor down because it's trying to catch up with a low rpm, I would either rev at 3200 rpm and let off the clutch not slow but not dumping, best I did with that on 235 street tires 373 gears and a cai was 14.4 @ 99 you can try that or reving 2500 rpm dumping the clutch have a little wheelspin holding the throttle until you hook then floor it

Let me know which works best good luck!

Street tires will give you bad times at the track

No excuses

Your car would be capable of a 13.3 without the tuner. With the tuner I could see a 12.9. The way your car is set up all your power is at mid to top end with that exhaust and gears.
