I don't think I'll break my 4.2 anytime soon being up in the mountains now. My exhaust did lower my 0-60 consistently by 0.2 seconds. Now, once I get a tune loaded and then a CMR I thinking I could hit a 4.0 or lower. That's if I was near sea level again and with the 30 degree weather. Currently my 0-60 has been around 5.7 in the mountains. When the weather was in the 100s I would see mid 6s. DA during times that like would be up at 8-10k feet IIRC.

My 4.2 was done all stock minus a bwoody intake and in track mode with paddle shifting. A slight brake torque can be applied, but no more than around 1000-1200 rpm. Paddle shift when you reach 5200-5000 rpm. Try to minimize excess weight in the Jeep, have the gas light on, or minimal gas in the tank. The Jeep needs time to break in also, best times will happen usually after about 2-3k miles. I've seen stuff saying that the PCM also doesn't allow full power (timing advance) until around 7-10k miles. Then just practice. Just go out and play around, that's what I did one day and got my 4.2. DA was great, so that helped a lot.

Here is a video from the day I was out playing around and practicing 0-60 runs. The end of this run I do a little doughnut

for me it was very simple...track mode and smash it. hey is anyone posting 0-60's after getting the tune? can't seem to find a board for it. just wondering what people are getting. put my order in today with Skip and plan on doing a custom tune locally but won't be able to get to it until after the holidays. hoping to smash my current 4.3.

There is really no specific stock, or non-stock 0-60 time threads. All the times are just mostly lumped into this thread for WK2s. The times will vary greatly from member to member for many reasons. I've had my times range from a best of 4.2 all the way to almost 7 seconds.

As for my mods and going from stock tune to a modified canned 91 octane tune, my 0-60 time improved 0.2-0.3 seconds consistently. I saw a peak gain of 0.4, maybe 0.5 seconds.

That's a considerable gain for 10hp. But I guess that takes into consideration the transmission being reset and etc. looking forward to my tune showing up soon!

Have you run the 93 octane tune?

I tried the 93 tune on a short drive, and I was getting to much st kn. I only have 91 available at the pumps in Albuquerque. I did a race fuel/pump 91 mix when I tried the 93 tune. That blended tank is $160 in fuel lol so I'm not going to run it all the time.

My custom exhaust made a big difference in power, I didn't dyno, but I could easily tell the drivability difference. No bogs in first gear, pulls hard all through first, spinning the tires, 0-60 times improved on the EVIC consistently. My last 0-60 post about a month ago was 5.1s and that's at almost 6,000' ! Just a modified 91 tune, custom cat back, and bwoody.
