I'm sure the car is exactly how you described, but it still doesn't make much sense. I mean mod for mod, the only thing you really have over me is TGV deletes and header, not sure what engine management you're using, or like the duty cycle of your injectors..

My mods

Invidia v2 Downpipe
Hallman MBC (@ 18-19 lbs, no more than 20) - And for my 12.3 run just the another night with 110 mixed in, I was at about 19-20 (barely turned up from normal)
HKS Carbon-Ti 3" Exhaust
Walbro 255
Open ECU - off the shelf map, if you'd even call it that..

I just don't see a half of second there, I mean if I added tgv deletes and say a perrin EL header (not a fan of dc sports and the EL is in my future)... I'd be running 7.3 in the 1/8th? I don't see where all this low end power is coming from and while running pump gas... I was only running 1.5 gallons of 93 mixed with 1.5 gallons of 110 (Purple), but it clearly helped my low and top end just from that. I also didn't flat-foot/power-shift the car, I'm sure that wouldn't have got me a 7.3 in the 1/8th if I did though ..

For the sake of comparison look at my 12.5 slip I've posted and look at your last run or slip you posted , 12.5 @ 108, 7.5 1/8th... compare it to my 12.5 @ 108, 8.0 1/8th run also on pump gas and we're back in the same position, now I think I'm just extremely curious of where this HALF of a second is coming from in the 1/8th but clearly not getting anymore out of the turbo in the top end the rest of the way down the track. You're still trapping the same as me as well. So, basically I'd love someone to explain or "school" me on this because I can't figure it out. I believe they're your slips, I mean I wish they showed 1000ft and so forth but oh well, maybe it's possible their 1/8th mile sensor is a bit off, maybe you're cars magical, who knows.

You say the car has amazing low end and off the line, well I'm getting off the line just as fast as you are and we have the same exact car with almost the same mods.

Are you full interior? Your engine management? Pro-tuned? etc..
