1.) his car has over 130,000 miles on it. yours has, what? 80,000?
2.) He'* had several transmission issues throughout the past few months..
3.) His car has 225 horsepower in stock form. It has way more torque than the 4.0 though. (275 ft-lbs)
4.) Spinning the tires is darn good for a 130K engine and transmission issues to boot. I think his car did pretty well everything considered.

He means that the car really drops off power, doesn't make any power that high.

Yeah it was still fast, but i was not exactly comparing it to my car. lol.

BTW, mine is around 7-7.5 seconds. Timed it numerous times with my friends G-timer. In 94 degree weather with 100% humidity, it is 8.6 seconds. In 69 degree weather and no humidity it varies between 7 - 7 and half, depending on incline. Its not too bad but the warm weather kills it.

I have yet to do it on a cold start...i dont like going fast until its warmed up a bit. Cold starts are very fast though.

What was the outside temp in that vid?

I've never found G-techs to be that reliable nor accurate.

As to shift points, you all have to remember that the redline was raised for Series II engines.
