I thought about deep staging but I didnt try it.
I would be curious to see what the SCT tuner would do for my truck.
That aint so bad. I wonder if your current tire combo is heavier than your OEM set? Rotational weight will KILL your times. I know it (along with other issues I had) killed mine...
I am guessing you don't plan on getting serious about racing but if you were to find a set of cheap, lightweight wheels (the smallest diameter you can fit), and the smallest, lightest tires you could fit on them, you would be absolutely amazed by how much time you would drop. This is both because of the reduction of rotational mass, but also the reduction in gearing, which in turn multiplies torque AND allows the engine to get into the higher rpms sooner, to bring it into the power band faster. Of course, itd make your jeep look like a skateboard but itd go faster
No telling what kind of improvement youd see, but I imagine you would see some tangible improvement. The improvement would also be amplified by the above tire/wheel swap.
