    Wow! Does that have upgraded turbos or is it just a straight tune?

    I believe just tune, exhaust and down pipes.

    That’s remarkable, really. 6.1 seconds to 120 mph is a good increase but considering the stock car does high 6’s not out of the ordinary for a tune. But 9.2ish seconds to 150 mph is wayyy faster than other tunes I’ve seen. This company did a really good job I’d worry about reliability though.

    yeah I'm waiting for one of these to blow up. So far these engines have been bullet proof.

    Still loving your 720 with the exhaust and sport cats? Or are you thinking you’ll tune it next?Hard to imagine you’d need any more performance you should be able to easily run 9.7’s in the high 140’s with good rubber, decent DA and your current config.

    I'm good where it's at. I dont see the point as I dont drag race and there isn't a track long enough to take advantage. It now sounds fantastic, breathes better and runs great so I am satisfied.

    Very happy to hear it! Hopefully you can post some good sound clips in the spring when you can stretch the cars legs again.

    Gets a little squirmy there half way down the track. Has to be making 900 hp. Absolutely crazy time. Stock the car can run 0-150 mph in about 10 seconds. This car with just a tune and exhaust is running 0-150 mph in well under 9 seconds. That’s a serious improvement. Maybe more impressive is that with just a tire change this car is running 2.3’s to 60 mph stock and 2.1-2.2 with these tunes.

    One of my irrational fears would be getting speed wobbles in a car like that, regardless if I was driving. Unless of course it isn't so irrational...:eek:
