I went to the track for the second time with my car and i just got my cobb stage 2 flash. I have hks up pipe and turbo back, and modded stock intake. I only got 2 runs in and I was running with my 18's on the car. I know I can do better I ran 13.4 @96.7 mph with a 1.87 60ft. I guess my question is do you shift in to 4th gear or can you stay in 3rd gear with out hitting the rev limiter before the end of the 1/4 ? Thank you for any help.

I would reccomend shifting before redline. Closer to 6000 RPM.
Wont that shift hurt him in the end?

Also great times with ur set up, get those stock rims on and i wouldnt be surprised if u lower ur time more then u expect

mmm... nope shift at 7 k, if you put it in 4th after a 6k shift, you go to overdrive early and it wont be able to pull as hard as 6800rpm in 3rd. If you had a different transmission it would be a different story. 4th gear sucks, stay out of it

yea, 18inch wheels kill 60' times and unsprung rotating mass can add a few tenths to yer E.T.
