How long did it take...

This guy I know ran 12s with just a turbo tuner and no other mods. It was pretty impressive... his time slip is here:

Very nice. I think you are going to find that these sub 55F temps do wonders for our engines. I like my run flats. My quickest times were on them, compared to my 19" Generals.

+1 Generals are great street tires but they have no "stick"...
wear rating of 380 for the General Exclaim UHP's vs. wear rating of 140 for the Bridgestone Potenza RE050A RFT...that's nearing competition tire territory.

Congrats indeed. Another 12 sec car with just a tune. Seriously, that is excellent specially considering the stock tires.

I think that has more to do with you having 19s vs 18s. To the OP, great time and impressive trap.

Very nice.
With 53 degree weather and elevation of only 200-300 feet you probably had a DA of below sea level.
That does wonders for a turbo car's performance.

Funny seems like the Generals are suddenly getting bashed.
But at Famoso in March, I out launched guys on DR's with them on the same track with similiar powered 335i's and M3's
Just makes me wonder what I could of done on stickier tires than what the Generals are.
I will admit though, I also got better launches on my stock RFT's recently than I did with my Generals.

Good job again.
Just goes to show that the JB2, PROcede v1.47 and Turbo Tuner are all capable of high 12's at 107-108 mph on a good track with good DA's (heck they seem to be capable of that with DA's in the 2000-3000 foot range too).

The Generals are decent. I can usually out launch my 06 M3 with Pilot Sports. But the stock RFTs launch just as good or better. But around corners, my 19"/wider Generals, out handle the stock 18" RFTs. So for all around driving, I like the Generals better. But when people talk about getting these nice drag times on the RFTs, its really not surprising at all. When I was beating many cars at LACR that had much higher traps than me, I was on stock RFTs. On the other side of the coin, when I was at Fontana, the GTO that ran the same traps as me, 107.10 mph, got a 12.48 ET compared to my 13.01. Talk about hooking up. I guess his slicks helped him quite a bit.

VBB - were you running 93 octane fuel? What track were you at?

Yes, when I had the TT I noticed it ran REALLY strong in cooler temps.
