Great to see another F/S type stang from CT running at LVD!
Based on your post, I assume you have stock E7s. Most of the other upgrades you have allow the car to breath better. Unfortunately, stock E7s just don't breath well.
The good news is that you can make your car a consistent 12 second ride with the E7s. Some fairly simple machining can really improve their performance. My brother has a similar weight '89 LX with E7s and some similar performance parts. He has been 12.5 @ 107 on slicks. GT40 and GT40P heads are also popular upgrades.

Calt: 3319 ( I don't know what this is either. I was told though that it's the calculated altitude as a result of weather conditions, but they could be wrong)
CALT = Calculated Altitude
This is a measure of the air quality, expressed in terms of altitude (distance above sea level). Basically speaking, it is a measure of air density. Simply put, the more oxygen you can force through the motor, the more power you will make. Air is less dense (i.e. less oxygen) at higher altitude. IIRC, LVD is something like 800-900 feet above sea level.
Similarly, heat and humidity also affect air quality. CALT takes all these factors into account and provides a representative "altitude" at the time of you pass. All told, the air was TERRIBLE when you ran. Just for fun, search for altitude correction factors to get a feel for how much the poor air was bringing your car down. It is armchair racing (mouse-button racing?) at its finest, but still a fun tool to help gauge your car's potential.
Good luck getting into the 12s!
