Sounds like you might be having too much fun. Good job getting all that done.

Yeah, I know all about weight reduction. I usually don't do it because I like to get my numbers in street trim. I think this year I'm gonna chuck that policy and start pulling stuff before i head to the track. I'm also getting DOT slicks as soon as I find a job...my current tires are just a little taller than stock.

It also helps a tad to move both front seat forward as much as possible. I move my passenger seat up all the way. That sucker weighs a ton

Air down your tires to 20 psi

Only way there can be 24 psi of pressure in the manifold with throttle open is if somethings pumping air into it, such as a super charger, no?
