how many pounds of boost should i run???

okay guys, since my car is actually working above 90% i'm going to take it to the drag strip sometime this weekend, this will be my first time :). because my car hasn't really ever ran well i have no idea how much boost to run at the track.

my performance mods are msd 6a ignition, magnecor wires, denso iridium plugs, hks evc iv, hks super afr, hks ssbv, hks fcd, hks intake, and full 3" aussie exhaust. my car has never been tuned either...

i also threw on my stock rims, so i'm not rocking the 17" racing harts anymore. hopefully i can install my spal fan on top of the intercooler before i go too...

i've been running 12 pounds around town... i've turned it up to 15 a few times, however it doesn't seem to feel that much quicker and first gear doesn't seem to like that much boost... how much should i run at the track? should i bother with octane booster or race fuel??? thanks!

Stock ct-26, right? I would add a few gallons of race fuel and run 16-17 lbs.
