What times do you run in 1/8 with your EB?

Small update: spoke with 5star about my impressions regarding their 93 perf/tow tune. They made some adjustments and also sent me a 93 perf only tune without the perf trans tuning. I didn't bother with the adjusted perf/tow tune and loaded up the 93 perf only and now I have the power I was looking for. A complete night and day difference from the 93 perf/tow. Pretty pleased at this point.

Figured as much. The difference in throttle feel is significant most likely and the actual power difference was probably another 30 or 40 horsepower.

Thanks, thatís what I needed to know.
I definitely need to check plugs and/or get an update on my tune. It showed 19 lbs of boost on those passes. Should definitely pick up more than 2-3 tenths over stock. 2.02,2.04 60fts but I donít remember mph.

Very nice, it'll get better and better also with a few more datalogs and revisions.. If you choose to do so.

I plan on it now knowing what a few minor tweaks can accomplish.

FWIW the Bone Stock 2015 Super Cab 4X4 I had with a 2.7L Eco Boost had a better 60 ft time 2.050 on a [email protected] pass compared to the 2.121 on the [email protected] pass and a 2.139 on the [email protected] mph pass with the 2017 I have now in the picture I posted!!
