About the same for me. Same tune. But when the weather cools we go faster!

I have an auto and self-tuned. I run 1.86-1.88 60ft times as well. 13.02 @102 is my best, normal is around 13.1 @103. 8.29-8.4 1/8 mile times @83-84mph.

Very nice mph! And only a tune? On the trifecta in good air I can only hit 80-81mph in the 1/8.

Nope - the factory GMPP tune was popular during the warranty period but once that passed, there are better tunes producing more power for far less money. No surprise that few are doing much with GMPP these days.

Hmmm.. I don't know if I could get used to the "No Lift" feature. Racing Formula Fords for over 26 years I shift with the "No Clutch" technique, only blipping the throttle. Completely backwards.
Do most of the "Tunes" have the "no lift" feature or is that an option?

It was a feature of the GMPP tune, although others may have adopted it. I recall Trifecta saying that some had asked for it, although I can't really see ever wanting to use it, myself.
