best time was a 10.02 in a 1/8th.it was still a lil cold out too though.temperature was around 39-42 degrees.i was honestly suprised.im hoping i can do a few odds and ends and drop down into the 9's.i wanna check out a 1/4 mile track but there is very few around here and everytime we go its so packed you only get to run one time.

I know superchips and a couple of other companies were working on it. The 2 degree timing advance shifts your power curve to the left... it gives you more low end quicker. I do not know if anyone is able to do it with the '08s yet but I am sure someone has or will figure it out soon enough.

Usually you can get it done by someone for less than $20

The superchips tuner now works with all 2nd gen frontiers and I believe the hypertech only works for the 08/09 frontiers at this time. I'm not sure about any other companies.

Uprev also does the 08 tunes. Its the best you can get, but can be more expensive depending on what package you get- $400-$900. Also the 2deg advance wont void your warranty. My local Nissan dealership did it for me. Of course you dont need that if you get a Superchips programmer or an Uprev tune. As a note, your 10.02 puts you about 15.2-15.3 in the 1/4. Low 9's in the 1/8 translates to low-mid 14's in the 1/4. Yes its possible, but you going to need some good mods and most important a quality tune. There is only a handful of us running that low now, myself included.
