With a stick car, you should see a better back 1/2 gan then with an auto, I'd say depending on how the car leaves and the driving, it should be somewhere from 25 to 28 mph give or take

I am picking up 28mph. I thought that seemed high.

How much you gain has alot to do with the 60 foot, if the car is weaker leaving it leaves more to gain at the top end.

I went from 90mph on motor with the nitrous tune to 107.7 on the bottle. I also was wondering if the car would run over 130mph in the 1/4..... hmmmm

90 to 107, how big of a shot?

Please don't tell me that is the 408 car in your sig, becuase if you're only going 90 mph in the 1/8th with that n/a that's a serious problem, you're like 10 mph off.
