    Thanks! I've backtracked some, running at the track with air filter (which I should be doing anyway), and with an extra exhaust component on it, in pursuit of better sound. More of a real-world scenario, except for slicks. I will try to take one more shot at a 12.8 in Bowling Green. But I want to keep the present stuff on it and see if the inlet/outlet porting can make up the difference. And get some track scans with the alcohol injection.

    I have not heard the present exhaust system from outside the car, but a spectator told me it sounds good, as in "all you can hear is the blower." That's at WOT. It is loud at idle and midrange rpms. Growls and some droning, more so with windows down, but no rasp that I can hear. Upper-mid rpms need improvement in sound, as heard from inside the car. Anxious to hear it from the outside.
