Auto's are more consistent but they are slugs without a tune. A decent manual tranny driver will smoke an untuned auto all day long. An untuned auto GT 99-04 is good for high 14's low 15's. A tuned one will drop you down to more consistent 14's.

and yes, right now is not the best time of the year in most places to try running the quarter....the air is too humid and heavy. Dense dry air > Air that is dense from humidity. Water does not ignite.
A stock auto should do way better than that. Mine went 14.3 bone stock. I do agree about the humidity though, its a killer for performance. At the local track most guys see about a half second difference between a nice cool day and a hot humid day.

Elevation means alot. If you look at times for example illinois and colorado they would be at least a .5-.8 1/4 difference between the times.

It's a lot harder than people think to run those 'low' 14's. Most completely stock runs i see are high 14's.

No kidding! I live in Colorado, and the fastest time I've gotten has been a 15.003 @ 95mph or so. That is with the mods in my sig except for the MM LCA's. Granted my 60' times suck (2.247) but still, you loose a lot.
