Yes, the 2nd to 3rd shift added at least half a second on, as I edited into my post above.

I should also add that the speedo error can be partially offset by running larger tires. For example, I was running 235/40/18 tires and my speedo was only off by 1 MPH at 60, by watching GPS speed in Torque in relation to the speedo.
Do you think running it to the full 7250 rpm would make a difference???

I will say though that I forgot completely to reset the ecu after the DP install. So maybe a combination running it to redline and that may help a tad if I can get the launch right

How I understand it:

Reaction time is how quickly you react to the green light. In terms of time of run, the reaction doesn't matter
Everyone talks about 60ft time and how faster 60ft corresponds to faster run. I'm assuming this stat is important because it gives indication of how well you're taking off while controlling wheel spin and wheel hop.
That time sheet is for 1/8 mile and Klingon ran it at 9.39 seconds with a speed trap of 77.28mph.

9.11 @ 75.5 mph has been my best on 1/8 mile.

interesting i'll pose a couple of questions what has the mods and tune done to fuel economy. and do you use the car as a daily driver. i have a 15 r-spec and i use it as a daily driver . do the nods make your car a better daily driver . i really like my car pretty much as it is i have wanted to do similar mods to my r-spec but dont want to loose the nice mix of "hot hatch" and economy . i have done mods on other cars i have owned and allways loose alot of the economy. i had a 01 focus which was heavily modded 280 whp and it droped fuel economy to 18-20 in town and 24 highway . how much of a change has it made to your car

I have the basic mods and a tune and my gas mileage is pretty much the same if I stay out of it and trying to get good gas mileage. I average real world mpg 28+ mpg and get 32+ on highway driving. I understand your concern, my 2017 R Spec I now consider a warm economy hatch.
Dyno tuned 226hp,240tq.20-21 psi.
