i was doing a WOT test on the Street yesterday. Got on it in 3rd gear. Ran good and I knew i was running rich(15 lbs. only with bstc) and then all of a sudden i swore i felt the car kick down. Is that normal?

It should have kicked down when you floored it unless you were going too fast for a downshift.

How fast were you going when it kicked?Might have been the L/Up disengaging.

i did have it floored. I didn't look at the mph because i was keeping my eye on the boost gauge the whole time. when it did that kickdown it felt like the car slowed down. Is that normal too?
