Default 85*, HIGH humidity, almost stock 99 SSEi

Just took this vid about 1hr ago.
It was 85* on the two thermo'* outside the house and car read 86*. Humidity was so high that I had to let off at the very end of the video due to running into a downpour (saw it coming about 1/8 mile ahead). Stopped turned around and high tailed it with another video going the other way. Will post second video after it slowly uploads to pb.
Engine temp was as high as the 180* let it go (190* F ).
AC was on for both vids as I had turned it on to turn cooling fans on (ZZP PCM deleted the fans from turning on with rear defrost). I forgot to turn the AC off so both runs were with it on -10'ish HP loss?

Mods: 180* t-stat, gutted stock airbox with paper AC Delco filter (semi dirty), UD WP pulley, ZZP PCM, 3" catless exhaust to OEM replacement muffler.

I definitely could have launched alot better (had the front tires at 23.5 psi -they are rated for 51 psi max, which is what the rears were set at).

Video with late shift -at the beginning of the video you can see the rain drops on the windshield :

Also, according the stock boost guage there was only 4 psi of boost -it definitely sounds like more.
I fully suspect my guage cluster is bad, except for the most accurate gas guage I've ever seen in a Bonneville/Grand Prix/Park Avenue. Getting another next week when I pick up my graphite AL7'* for converting to two-tone graphite/tan interior.
