Car is looking good! What tires are you running?

S197s can suffer from the clutch fluid overheating. I've seen this used as a way to address it:

No trap, I still haven't done anything to it. I keep thinking I'll spend the coin on a Cobra Jet intake and some headers, but then I say to hell with it...

Will be awhile now
Need to save up for new clutch/flywheel and hydro pilot bearing

With this new setup, I should hit 7.6

My best was 7.7 w/4.30's

I waited until the warranty was up, but I am very happy with the BOSS intake, Steeda CAI and Steeda tune. Only other MOD is a Cobra axle back set of mufflers. I'm saving for an aluminum DS and then maybe Koni stuts and shocks.
It feels pretty fast with just these MODS, probably a high 12's as it sits.
