My car has 46,000 miles lol so its broken in. I think I'm doing it wrong so I'm gonna experiment a bit. I'm at about 5500 ft elevation so I know my car has more to give. How do you launch your car?

5500 feet means your engine can't get as much oxygen, so it can't burn as much fuel, and it won't produce as much power. I used to be an Air Force flight engineer, and we had tables and charts to calculate how much power an engine would make at takeoff according to altitude and air temperature. Even with the turbo helping, an engine is going to be a lot weaker at that altitude.

Mine is a stick, so I rev to about 2500 rpm, pop the clutch as I floor the gas, and use the Cobb's flatfoot shift feature as I go into second gear about 5000 rpm.

I nailed a 6.1 0 to 60 this morning on my way to work. I put the toggle into sport plus, transmission into drive, held down the brake, revs to 2000 and let her rip. Lol I knew i could do better than 7.3!

Since no one has posted in a while I thought I'd add my 2 cents. I've got a mostly stock '16 convertible. I've added the Airraid intake tube, CVF street intercooler, and a brand new custom tune from Ryan at Purple Drank. I haven't tried a quarter mile yet, but I did get my 0-60 time down to 4.7 seconds. I was at 6.6 when I first bought it and had a best time of 5.2 with the Cobb stage 2 OTS tune.
