Default Better than expected

Today I ran the 0-60mph test in 9.8sec., which isn't bad for the 2.84. That last PCM I had put in helped a bounch.

A stopwatch. The nearest track is 150 miles away. I hit the button the instant I hit the gas and stoped it at 60mph but I didn't let off the gas til 65.

That'* a little inaccurate. I'd say take 1.5 seconds off that and it should be closer to what you have.
