Default A few questions about altitude

I understand that you will run a slower ET with a higher altitude but will this affect the trap speed? Ive heard that it will and Ive heard that it wont.
So Id like to know which is true. Also would like to see what I should be trapping with my mods (in sig).

Also the main reason Im wondering is because this guy I know w a mustang (2000?)is telling me hes running a 13.5 at 102 at 1 mile above sea level. Previously he ran a 14.7 @ 98ish I believe at the same elevation(this of course was last season). Am I gettin my leg pulled?
What kind of modifications would a GT stang need to go from 14.7 to 13.5? (Again this is NOT at sea level.)

Altitude doesn't affect ET. it affects power wich is your trap speed. Power is what affects ET.

LOL soooo what he's saying is that DA does affect your ET LOL..

but yeah DA affects performance because the higher the DA the less oxygen there is in the air which means less performance.
