I torque steered a lot off the line but I don't see that being .2 seconds slower. I even speed shifted. I hope when my header gets here from 1darkv it will help.
Octane booster doesn't do anything good. It's a marketing ploy. if you truly 100% want my advice on your 1/8th mile time post up both of your timeslips side by side for me to compare as well as a list of mods, track temps etc. This was done at the same track around the same time of the year right?

Humidity kills performance.

Went straight to nissan and its not covered under warranty. So I decided to go to former SpecV owner tanners house to put the header on. Took 4-5 hours to get the stock one out. Already pissed off it too so long I went to transfer o2 sensors. The bottom left one stripped and has no thread. So I live in WV and my car is stuck in Ohio in pieces. Thank god my buddy let me borrow his BMW. I think when this car is paid off more its going to be traded.
Basically by reading these 3 posts you hate your car because of your decision making.
The paint thing could be legitimate defect which I would fight for, but your driving in the 1/4 is not the cars fault, especially if the conditions were different etc. The information available on this site could have shown you it will take several hours to install a header in addition to the fact that the sensors frequently strip or break and require replacement. My header install without a lift took 6-8 hours. I was also one of the first ones to do it. I broke both my sensors.
My turbo kit was marketed as an 8 hour professional install. It took 3 almost 12 hour days to get it in due to odd's and end's missing parts, no lift, etc.
That was no ones fault, especially not the cars.
If you treat all your future cars this way you'll be trading in cars frequently. I'm not saying this to be a dick or anything, just trying to put some logic out there so you're not upset.
