How about 1/4 mile trap speed of 83mph
That's down 6-7 mph and some significant HP from everything else I've seen.

Maybe they filled it with 87 octane instead of premium? Or maybe the A/C was running? Or maybe they ran the 1/4mile before the cat was warm (running pig rich with retarded timing)? Or maybe the TC was switched on? Or maybe they should have checked to see if the DSI was stuck in the long runner position, Or...


There sure is a lot of maintenance to keep these cars running right isn't there? But I have nothing but
and
when it is running right.

High elevation and high temps don't mix too well, especially on a high-strung NA 4-cyl. Now that's in the summer. Living in the desert in the "winter" is pretty cool literally. Dry roads and temps in the 40-50's feels like at least a +10 HP mod
