Mate, I know you moan about me 'short-shifting' but the car had a rotor which was too small for the Distributor cap (and sparking and shorting out at high RPM), SC Cams (which have nothing left by 6k), fuel pumps which weren't delivering enough fuel, an engine that hit 12.0+AFR by 6k, and a Distributor wasn't Advancing/Retarding by the full amount... Also to find where 0.16Bar Boost Pressure is leaking.

And that drag may have been run slightly up hill (I don't remember) - think I was more concerned with 0-60, 0-100 and standing 1/4. But, with reference to the original postee's 60ft time, that was done in ~2.2 seconds (and not 2.5 minutes! )
