Sorry man, but there's no real info there at all.
Just one pass @ 113mph with FBO+upgraded turbos isn't exactly impressive even on 20" wheels.

I'm not knocking you but I would want more info before buying a tune.

Well not trying to impress anyone, just giving some new information for everyone. Although I'm on 20in wheels take account that the rear tires size 285/25 and is bold.

The tune improves drivability and added power. Although the 1/4 mile drag numbers are not where it is. We know the problem is traction, and we will be addressing it before the next run.

I can honestly say i didn't get the chance to record the 60 foot time. Only trap and 1/4 time.

Sorry about that.

You definitely need a better wheel and tire setup. I bet you spun bably on the launch and during shifts. Subscrided to see what this upgraded AA setup does when you have a track worthy setup.

Apples to oranges. You can't compare tunes and stock vs. upgraded turbos at the same time, and say it's the tune making it smoother. Of course it's going to feel "smooth going up on the RPMs", that's where upgraded turbos will shine. I think you should clarify that you have this upgrade in the first post.

No. I have gone from JB4 to COBB to Procede, and while they have unique characteristics, hesitation has never been an issue.

Well if you notice the post my focus is the tune. Was not intended to promote the turbos. But yes should have been more clear.

You would be the first i personal heard that on JB4 has no hesitations during WOT. I have couple friends that has the JB4 and the all say their is a hesitation.

If by hesitation you mean the bog you get when shifting from third to fourth really fast or from fourth to fifth in a MT, I know exactly what you are talking about, it used to bug the hell out of me when I had the jb4, but I'm sure since then it has been solved

I'm thinking it's going to be a clipped compressor wheel.
