You should be shooting for upper 12s and in the 105-108 mph area. I ran a 16g on my 05 for a while, and with low 1.8 short times and cooler weather would run 12.6-12.8s in the 107-108 mph area. I never had launch control back then and would launch blipping the throttle between 5 and 6k slipping a hair and letting loose. I also had the rev limiter lifted a tad and shifted at 7200 in every gear and shifted as close to a flat foot shift as I could w/o actually doing it.

I'd say go back and try some more before you start looking into problems. My car ran the above times with 266/233 whp/wtq on a low reader dynodynamics which was approximately 310whp on a known high reading dynojet.

keep us posted and good luck

Yeah looking back on the video that my buddy made of me running, my launch was terrible I bogged down and my 1-2 literally took like a whole second as well as almost y 2-3 and 3-4. I realized I definitely have to be faster with my shifts. Looking back on the video its very noticeable that I was shifting extremely slow.

I feel next time at the track I will do a lot better. Thanks guys.
