I have been racing my Bullitt up at our local dragstrip. When I say "up at" - I meen it. The track is at an elevation of apprx. 4000 feet.

I seem to get a different story from just about everybody there. Some say take off a half second, others say 3/4 to even a full second, and yet others say it's not gonna really affect you.

What do you all think? My Bullitt has never ran better than a 14.58 at 96.5mph. There was a brand spankin' new Cobra there tonite who did not do much better (14.1).

At higher elevations, the density or air is less than at sea level. At elevations lke yours, your car has a harder time breathing. Just like when you people get short of breath at high altitudes. I do know that in other countries where the elevation is a lot higher than where your at in which the computer is programmed differently to compensate for less air.
