    So I bought a used 2015 SHO the other day and it felt very fast compared to what I had been seeing online for a stock SHO. I notice an Air Intake from AirRaid was installed and didn't think too much of it since that is usually the first mod a person would do outside of a tune. Well at this point I'm pretty confident it has a tune and maybe some other stuff done to it. I recorded a video of a quick 0-60 run with traction control off on a flat road.

    Let me know what you think and any thoughts would be great, thanks!

    that was what, just over 5 seconds 0-60? Isn't that stock?

    I'd be surprised that if it is tuned, the previous owner didn't give you the programmer containing the "stock" file.

    Your run starts right at :05 and you hit 60 around :10 seconds - it's very hard to get an exact time on a YouTube video but it's "around," 5 seconds and stock is 5.2. I don't think you have a tune. Any decent tune you'll be under 5 seconds easy.

    I loaded it into Premiere to count the seconds and get a nearly exact time. I press the gas at 5:13 and it crosses the 60 mark at 9:29 which seems to give me a time of 4.2ish give or take a few milliseconds.

    I bought it from a dealership and during the test drive the sales person seemed a bit surprised when I opened it up on the highway to see what it could do. Although he admitted he didn't really see a lot of SHOs come through. Now he wants one.

    I'm trying to find a Dyno in my area so I can see what I'm starting with here, but finding one is harder than I thought it would be.

    If the run was 4.2 is, then yes it is tuned. Where are you located?

    Oh I almost forgot, here are the frames I took from the video to attempt to get as accurate a time as I could. Let me know what you think, thanks!

    I'm located in northern Maryland right next to Delaware. I'm probably 45 minutes from Philadelphia and I figured there is probably a Dyno there somewhere.

    Can you do that with my video on YouTube to compare? I have a video of a 0-60 run with my previous LMS 93 octane tune...

    So how would this work? Get a new tuner, that downloads the "stock" flash (tuned) and be able to switch back and forth?

    Looks to be around there. I'm sure there is a margin of error with this method, but it's the best way I can come up with to see times without plugging something into the car to test with.

    Pretty good run though!
