you didn't lose any power...it's like putting a stall in an automatic and then redynoing. take it to the track, i bet if anything you gained MPH and dropped ET..

I know it's a whole lot stronger but why does the dyno not show that. i am now in the mid 12s.

i read it has something to do with "leverage" on the drums, but I still dont understand it
