Greetings to everyone. I currently live in southeast Ohio. I am retired after 41 years of working for a petroleum company. I must warn you that I am "Tech Challenged" so please forgive me if I ask what may be simple to answer questions. My ride is a 2018 Shadow Black SHO. I have probably all the same mods as everyone else with the exception of running E30 or methanol. Earlier this year I switched from the Livernois tune which gave me a best time of 12.88 @ 106 and installed the SCT X4 from GH and my time dropped to a best of 13.189 @ 104! I would like to keep the SCT for the data logging feature but may switch back to Livernois. Any ideas? Just remember my tech disability! Thanks!

Welcome to the forums.  Lots of info on here.  Pertaining to your tune, have you sent GH a data log and had any revisions?

Welcome!!!! Lots of good people and good information!!! 

Might be OAR? How long after you changed the tune did you run at the track?

Also a datalog might help see what is going on?

Additionally where are the pictures of this SHO?!?!
2016 Taurus SHO Performance Pack, Gearhead Custom Tunes, Gearhead Gen3 Turbos, Gearhead Intercooler, Gearhead 170 Tstat, EPP Dual Feed Intake, EPP Hot Pipes, EPP Ceramic Coated Catted Downpipes, Corsa Exhaust, XDI-35 Fuel Pump, DW In-Tank Fuel Pump, Fuel-It Bluetooth Ethanol Analyzer, HR Lowering Springs, AD Lower Trans Mounts, 3Bar MAP, SP-542 Plugs, Custom SHO Puddle Lights, Custom Gearhead emblem overlays. Best time currently is 11.922 @ 115mph full weight, stock wheels, stock tires... just like it came off the show room floor.

hmmm what was your elevation?  I'd be surprised that GearHead could not Top a LMS tune,  for comparison My SHO on a SCT AJP tune ran a best of 13.01,  and ran 13.2 AVG on 105f days at sea level (about 600da)

2010 non-pp, 50k miles, 3-bar,  .30 plugs, 170-T-stat, SNOW-KIT STG1, AJP TURBO METH TUNE-REV3
 
Best of 12.61 no DA correction

His OAR was perfect, I ran into him at national trails last month, elevation 800ish and DA was about 3200 that day. I loaded my AO tune for my next trip there and ran a 12.61 in similar DA.

He emailed me a log and it looked pretty similar to mine. Only thing that stuck out to me was his 0-60 mph time was 5.3 seconds and mine is a hair under 4.3 seconds. As far as why, that is the great mystery.

Was he spinning?

Not sure, he was a couple cars ahead of me in the staging lanes so I didn't get to actually see his runs, but his 60' was either pretty close to mine or slightly better.
