Supercharger Dyno

The car received a dyno tune at SR Racing's facility. The Split Second box that comes with the Vortech Supercharger allows alteration of the fuel map and timing retard. After about 2 hours of tuning, the car gained nearly 30whp at top end, and a significant area difference under the curve.
