That's probably as good as its going to get at that temperature with those tires as well. I'd be willing to bet you might see a little quicker time with the temp around 40 on those tires.

4.6 is a nice time all round

Thats my thinking as well. I drove around for 10 miles on the freeway so I know they were as warm as possible

I should add though that i got the car in April and the stock numbers were in warm weather. I got the trinity in November and the exhaust right after. I believe the stock number would have been stronger in colder months.

Also, this thing is good for 4.3 all day long, occasional 4.2. 4.1 was just damned perfect run.
I'm stock now; looking to improve performance. Earlier threads here implied that the BG ECU swap was the conventional wisdom tune; now it seems that the Trinity is the way to go. IMO its interesting that you are getting these numbers with Trinity 93, and magnaflow alone; assumed I needed CAI, CatBackand BT CC as well -- excellent info

A catch can wont provide you with any hp numbers or extra speed, all it does is help maintain the vehicle.

Re: Zero to 60 mph times

New pb, colder weather seems to equal more boost.

I read here that the SRT8 driving school recommended for optimal 0-60 times: revving to 1,200 while in Track_Mode & Manual_Shift, floor it and shift @ 5,200 RPM's. Doing this I got much better times vs. simply using "D_sport", as my GC_SRT8 shifted @ the redline. Yet many here have gotten very good times in "D_sport". Is this normal; does "D_sport" normally hold the RPM's to redline, negating the best possible times -- or is it just me?

Stock untuned first gear in full auto will shift at about 5200rpm, then 2nd will shift normally over 6000, maybe 6200.

When it shifts low in first it's making the most of the torque curve, however, it might be slightly early from my experiences. I need to do more testing, the weather just isn't good for grip right now.

I find it almost doesn't matter which mode you take off in, it's all pretty similar times. And whatever differences there are, could just be conditions, and driver inconsistencies. I've taken off with massive wheel spin sometimes, and then other times none at all. I've done great times with and without traction control light flashing. And not had any tire spin at all with traction controller 100% off.

Best piece of advice I can give, don't jump on the gas with the painted stop lines near, they are slippery and will cause tire spin almost every time, especially when cold and wet.

Oh yeah, this was in sport mode for those that don't know what they are seeing on the dials. I let the transmission do the shifting unless it's around a corner, can't do as well as it does in a straight line.
Here was the original pic...
