05 5.4 Edge CS slow stage 3

ok, Can anyone help me out with whats going on? my 0-60 time stock is 11.9secs, with stage 1 and 2 is around 11.2... I just put 91 in my gas tank and changed it to stage 3... for some reason its 12.3secs now!?!
Any idea whats going on?
Im going to change my fuel filter this weekend and going to try and get my spark plugs done in the next couple weeks.

I'm pretty sure the 5.4 makes the most hp and torque on 87.

What Viper said ^^^

I get better results from running level 2 with 87 than level 3 with 91. Its been a long time since I've tested it but my best 0-60 was in the 9 second range.

You would yield better results from custom tunes. Honestly the stock Edge tunes are crap.

On the note of the fuel, right now since I'm sure your tank wasn't bone dry you have a mix of 87 and 91 in it. It will take a few tanks before you are purely running 91.

I get better mileage on level 2. I average about 16-17mpg city and 20mpg highway on level 2 with it set for my 285's.

Was that just stock 2 or was it custom settings on 2?

Level 2 with nothing custom but tire size. I've played around with shift points and firmness but found it doesn't really do much in the way of performance it just makes the truck hard to drive if you go too crazy.

Awesome to know, we pretty much have the same truck for mods, just you have the exhaust. 20mpg would be amazing!
