My best 0-60 after tune is 2.78 but mostly in 2.9s in better DA n temp.

My 1/4 before was 10.36
Now 10.4 in better DA n Temp

I feel there could be 2 reasons for this:

#1 the actual shift from 1st to 2nd gear takes longer or not as crisp as other shifts. Also my 1st gear torque stay under 400 but 2-8 I'm 720 plus.

#2 traction could be the only cause as tires are at 60% right now ( 4S 305-35-20)

I contacted Evolve n they stated have ecu tuner update tune based on tcu tune. Ecu tuner says they have nothing to update as they don't mess with tcu tune. Evolve wouldn't share what parameters need to be changed which I can share with ecu tuner.

So I'm kind of stuck in the middle now. Probably sometime this week I'll go to stock tcu file and run dragy and do same runs with evolve tcu file.
Or #3 bad fuel? Or not as high octane? Thanks for the review 🙏🏾
Its the same fuel as before 6.5 gals e85 and east 93. Been doing this for 6 months. Same station everything.

Can you take a video of the launch where I can hear the sound made during shifts?

Eurocharged stage 1. I'm just scratching my head. TCU feels more aggressive. I switched back n forth today but couldn't do draggy. My tires are still 7/32nd 4S and don't know either it's traction due roads being little cooler (70f) versus 90-100 degree temps we had.

Does anyone here know if Keller primary 3.5 inch will fit stock secondaries. I'm already gutted on secondary so trying to see as there will be no point changing them. Thx

Guys getting rid of the AWE intake received on Friday. Just used it over the weekend but with stage 2 and downpipe expenditure need to sell them. Will get em later when possible. Let me know if anyone interested. Thanks.
