I was just reading THIS thread last night and wondering WHY after so many twin turbo kits have been sold and installed (Fast Intentions and others) has no one been clobbering my heavy G37 from four years ago. :confused:

Your trans sounds smart shifting. Good work all around. 11.5 with ONLY a 2.0 60' is great. A torque converter would place you right in the top two.

Thanks.. I still have two maps to play with at the drag strip that have a brake boost option. I will also run the car in Phoenix which I believe is 900ft elevation vs. here 5000ft and 7934 DA which is killing my ET.

I look forward to the updates! You've done so well with conditions WAY against you. Good luck.

Thanks!

Just need some fine tuning from Seb and I will be back at it again.

Need a HS converter if you don't have one. My times went from 11.9-11.5 and 60ft 1.95- 1.70 just by only changing the converter. Same boost. Here is your time corrected to sea level. Actually the DA was worse this run than the last 8330. This run you cut a better 60ft.

Bring that car to Atco, NJ !!!! :) :driving:

I know you will succeed even more. Yes, a converter and good air will put you in the tens. That's great MPH.

Thread drift: Although I no longer have the G37, Here's why I'm still interested.

Thanks for the info! This confirms i can get into the 10's at a lower elevation and better DA.

Thanks Coop... I just have to keep working it :driving:

I will be data logging this weekend to get an updated tune for my elevation since the car was tuned in California. Should squeeze some more power out of it and finally get to try my brake boost option.

Congrats on your win glad to hear you are still in the game!

Clean ride :tup:

Awesome time in this heat!!! Will be even faster in Oct-Nov when it's sucking in cooler air. Is that your best so far? I've been to Atco a couple of times not in my TT sedan though. My goal is 10's no G sedan any generation has done that.

Noob question, how do you use brake boosting to your advantage at the drag strip?

It's a map option (for autos) that Seb made for me that allows you to build boost at the line. You press your brake, hold the handbrake at the same time and rev it to build boost while it holds the car.

You have to upload this program separately with your Ecutek cable. I have not tried it yet because we are still doing adjustments to my base maps for my high elevation.

Have you been running the 1/4 mile lately?

I'm starting to think a new thread needs to be created so that the list can be updated by an active member.

Sounds awesome. I have a brake boost switch on mine (6MT) but haven't tried messing with it at the track yet. Ummm I guess technically yes if you want to call it "running" - turns out I am realllllly terrible at this so far. But NT05Rs are going on tomorrow and I'll be back at it getting some practice on Friday T&T. Any and all launch advice is welcome!

Practice, Practice and then Practice some more... This will make you good.

I need to get back at the track now that I have the new tune but need to data log so Seb can check. Work is crazy and gets in my way of having fun :shakes head:
