Ok the best i could muster with the Blackwing and B&B PRT's was 13.45 @ 105 mph <img border="0" title="" alt="[Sad]" src="gr_sad.gif" /> . Monday i installed the FLP Longtube header package with high flow cats and x pipe. Also did new plugs and Taylor Wires. Last night i went to HRP and got 4 runs in all new bests <img border="0" title="" alt="[Big Grin]" src="gr_grin.gif" /> .

The first run i left the traction control on <img border="0" title="" alt="[Roll Eyes]" src="images/icons/rolleyes.gif" /> And ran a 13.6 at 107(new best mph) mph. With a 2.3 60ft.

The second run was a 13.250 at 108mph Getting better

The third was a 13.003 at 108.4 mph with a 2.0 60ft

The last run was a 12.971 at 108.7 mph <img border="0" alt="[Burnout]" title="" src="graemlins/burnout.gif" />
With a 1.97 60ft. This launch was dumping the clutch at 3000 rpms with it hooking nicely.

As i attemped to run again i got to line up next to a 98 C-5 A4. Totally stock with just a NX 100 shot on it and as i was about to go for my burn out i got a check engine lite <img border="0" title="" alt="[Eek!]" src="gr_eek2.gif" /> DOH!!!! So i just pulled off the track and went home to autotap it.
It was a IAT Sensor High Voltage code WTF <img border="0" title="" alt="[Confused]" src="images/icons/confused.gif" /> So i dropped it off this morn at the dealership to fix it.

But all in all there is a lot more left in this car as it sits. It was hot and humid i had a full tank and was not powershifting. And i feel i could launch at around 4000 rpms to get the sixty down more. I figure maybe a 12.7-6 at 109 mph!

This car has 3 boltons only.

But the FLP long tube header system took off .5 seconds and added 4 mph <img border="0" alt="[Burnout]" title="" src="graemlins/burnout.gif" />

If you have a C-5 and you want headers dont even think twice FLP Rocks!! <img border="0" alt="[Z06 Corvette]" title="" src="graemlins/z06.gif" />

That's sweet Mike ! How tough/long was the install ? How much noisier is it inside the car when driving ?

This is quite an increase in the MPH on the top end. Seems you an excellent choice for your car.
