Some times you get a funky MPH on drag time slips.
I remember a long time ago my friend got a 130MPH on hs 12sec car once.
It does happen.

But from your numbers the car is wanting to go 113 Mph in the 1/4
but something is killing it.
What about the 1/8th mile data? what is the variance in the 1/8th MPH?
88.83MPH is a good 1/8th mile MPH (its at least in the program)
The car starts out well but flattens out at some point about 1/2 way down.

101 MPH sucks for that car. (there is a problem)

any 1000ft data? All this stuff can be analyzed. You definatly have a top end power robber, to find.
The air fuel ratio needs work. (those carbs suck on a T ram anyway)
(carbs-fuel system, (volume, limitiation))
could be spark scatter/crossfire. (ignition cap ionization, usually from too large plug gap and or too hot a coil, or poor cap/rotor phasing)
could be a fubared transmission or torque converter (no top end MPH)
could be a valvetrain issue.
The mufflers definatly suck- you will see from testing
once you find the other cork(s).

Your car should be running like a raped ape, but its got a problem.

Can you post the complete data from some time slips?
