Definitely been helping. Need to get out on a cool night. Tough to get out in the evenings and it has still been humid in the mornings.

Getting closer to the 3.5s. But seeing consistent 3.6-3.7s is great. Tires are breaking in well.

So slow. Embarrasing. :whistle:

j/k. My heavy ass Haldex wagon can only do about 4.5s :LOL:
LOL. This car does anywhere from 3.6-4.1s depending on the run. Obviously only posting the good ones that are verified (and ones that shouldn't have been verified hahahaha).

If it makes you feel better, my 91oct tune is super conservative and does about 4.3-4.5s on winter tires. My stock turbo on e35 would only do 5.5-5.7s.

4.5s is solid. Especially for a wagon!

Weather cooled off a little had suspected that my clutches had been starting to slip for a long time now but I pretty sure they are done after these last 2 pulls, still managed to get decent time with slipping clutches. Finally getting my 60' better also, when I had eurodyne stage 3 tcu and apr stage 3 tcu I could never cut better than a 1.9xx, switched to hp tuners and got down to 1.85is, then put a set of used 034 springs and new nitto nt555r2 and have gotten down to a 1.77-78 but clutches have been going for a while

Sweet runs. Whats up with the limiter hit going into 3rd? Is that just more clutch slip? You gonna go back with stock clutches or Dodson clutches?

On the 2nd run when it shit the bed is when I think the clutches finally said no Mas, haven't decided yet, I may go with the deka stage 3 and basket or I have a good deal on Dodson but haven't decided yet, wasn't planning on pulling it all out till my other motor is done so who knows

Pretty strong headwinds on these, so definitely needed the slope. Couldn't get a clean run the with the tail wind. Goal was a sub-8s and I got it. Full interior, 2x kids seats (had them and the bench out the day before go figure), no spare/tools. Might be able to give it a bit more up top, but I will take it. Last run isn't valid, but no care lol. Might be time for an XL housing.

I was APR tuned before EQT. I have about 20 different 60-130 runs while I was APR tuned and they were all mid-high 11s. Some in the 12s if the DA was over 1K. My absolute best time was 11.29s, which was faster than my 2nd best time by 0.25s. After switching to the EQT custom tune, my very first 60-130 run was 11.15s. My best 60-130 on 93 octane to date is 10.81s which is better than APR by 0.48s. I also dynoed the car on both tunes too. Same dyno and temps, only difference was tune and EQT dynoed peak 14whp and 4wtq more. It was as much as 25whp higher in a lot of places throughout the rev range. My point is that APR isn't a bad tune at all, but having a custom tune makes a huge difference. Also, my best 60-130 on full E85 is 9.85s (EQT custom tune).
Oh, I'm not trying to knock on APR. I've enjoyed their tunes for 10 years now across both my V & VII. I'm just ready for more. That and today's standards are higher for cars with my build. Low 12's isn't horrible, that's plenty quick lol. I just want to move up to a proper power figure for my build. That, and corn. Something APR never delivered on sadly, and since map switching isn't a thing for APR's VII tunes like you could with the older V. I haven't been able to play around with race fuel. It's just too much of a hassle as I'd not only have to drive to my shop to get that file flashed, I'd have to haul a bunch of 104 in my car to said shop to have them drain the 92 out before flashing the 104 file.

Which is partly why I want a protuner like EQT or 5150. Ability to swap maps on the fly for day to day driving & go fast. I know they make a difference. My IS38 lost to a stock turbo on E85 a while back. :ROFLMAO:

Went out late tonight and had a little fun with Dragy. Each run my car kept getting faster but after the third one, decided to end it and go home. I had a full gas tank at the beginning of the pulls, full weight and a MANUAL transmission. I think tomorrow night I'll try a little weight reduction (remove the rear seats and everything out of the trunk) just to see the difference. Who knows, maybe I'll get it down to mid 7's.

Damn impressive! 6MTs have awesome gearing for 60-130s. Mid-to-low 7s capable for sure.
