Default Kinda slow?

So my car'* had a full tune up just about, running great and all...

But I took a video of one of my first full throttle runs after the tune up and it'* kinda slow. Granted I didn't really start flooring it until about 25, I was a bit hesitant because my car draws a lot of attention to itself when it is floored due to the noise...but even then it still seemed slow. Granted, I had a full tank of gas, lots of junk in the trunk, and it was pretty warm outside...but doesn't this seem kind of slow to you?

I love the sound though.

On the other hand, I have no problems with my low end power:

Thanks for the reply. Still naturally aspirated for now. :( Someday, someday...

I guess I won't worry about it then. I'll remove the items from my trunk, get a K&N sometime and wait for a cooler, less humid day. My elevation is about 775 feet but I doubt that would make that much of a difference. Perhaps I'll relocate my filter down lower in the engine, for better cold air intake.

No gear swap. The car came that way from the factory (Gran Touring package).
