    These results will not impress many of you tuned SHO guys but we have only begun to tune my Continental. AJPturbo has a few more tricks up his sleeve. The DA was over 2500 for these runs and my IAT 2 was at 150 at the start and 185 at the end of the runs. Better and cooler air would have me in the 12s with no further tuning tweaks. I am car 505.

    Great numbers with those odds! Did you pop the hood or remove the firewallside weatherstrip?

    What was car 611? RWD, big block, big turbo, ...?

    It was a BMW M3 that was modified. It had the most ear splitting scream I have ever heard. I did pop the hood between runs but the weather stripping on the Conti is not as easily removed as on an SHO or MKS. I didn't even take the engine cover off although I probably should have done that.
