Who's taken the x5m to the drag strip?

Took mine last night and I'm not to happy. Ran a 13.60 @ 96.58 mph. Car is tuned and has k&n filters. I've emailed the company that supplied the tune to find out if something is wrong. Stock they're supposed to go 12.50's @ 117mph.

Does anyone have stock times/tuned times?

Ouch, I haven't yet but I do plan to Go see what it runs stock then again after KŁN exhaust and a tune. I know our track runs fairly slow so I was worried about being 12.9-13.2 stock but 13.6 with a tune

It was 84 out. Humidity was 61% DA was 2948 but you think that would make it run 1.5 seconds slower and kill the MPH like that? Ran good 1&2 60' was 1.92 which isn't that bad. On the high end just fell on its face. I was racing a wrx had him to the 1/8 then he passed me like I was standing still. That's why I think the tune maybe no good. Shouldn't the x5m pull hard on the high end too?

Yeah I know. I'll know from the software company tomm I hope. Worst case I'm gonna go back to stock and hit the track again. I should have done that to get a baseline anyways.

Hmmm. A tuner sold a tune that claimed more hp and it didn't actually produce more hp? And K&N filters didn't improve the breathing and result in more hp? Next thing you know, somebody will be wrong on the internet.

Suggest you name the tuner to protect other potential purchasers.

Yes, it should... bummer about the tune. Maybe a stock flash and a trip back to the drag strip is in order.

Edit: curious, what was the 60' time?
