Well I headed on over to VMP on Saturday. Overall the numbers are OK but the curves confirm what I've kind of suspected all along, that the power just seems to peter out and get all sloppy at the end.

And yes I started spraying at about 5200rpm during this particular run.

You guys are pretty quick, you figured it out right away. It took awhile for everyone to get it when my friend posted it on RacingSouthwest(.com.)

Something's not right about that graph.
When torque goes up (at 5K) and revs go up at the same time, power goes up, not down..
Were the tires slipping on the roller?
Maybe a torque converter problem?

Must have been the muffler bearing slipping!

I think you might need to add some Cialis synthetic oil for some stiffer response. ;)

Do you have a turbonator? That's an impressive launch
