Impressive numbers. Which intake and is it really loud without the mufflers?

I would have gone into that race overly confident and ended up with a bruised ego...lol. I've seen Superbees run and most of them are high 12 second cars. He's put some work into it to get it down to high 11s.

Yeah. Apparently, he can get closer to low 11s, but he didn’t expect much from Kato, I guess. Lol. Funniest part is the the yellow paint they have for those cars is called “Stinger Yellow.”

No, Recechip does not support E85, the JB4 does.
Not exactly true. Jb4 can integrate with fuelit e85 sensor but alone its the same as other boxes.

So my first run last night was a 13.1 but I kinda got Launch control figured out an the second time ran a 12.8. My mods include K&N drop in filters with deck plate mod to the factory air box, stage 1 reflash from Tork Motorsports, Inlet/outlet of the primary cats ported to 1.75in, primary/secondary cars gutted, HKSm40 plugs, Tork catch cans!

Your Density Altitude was 1,870 feet. Not bad, but not great.

With those mods and with better air, mid 12's are possible.

A lower DA will only net you a few tenths and a couple of mph.

The problem is you're only hitting 110 mph, about the same as a stock Stinger. People running mid 11's are running ~120 mph.

It seems you're short ~100 hp. Maybe recheck/change out the tune?
