Towels first 1/4 mile run!

Road race, Auto X, or the Drag Strip

that's a great 60' time.
i wouldn't get wrapped up on reaction time unless you want to get into bracket racing.

And if it ever gets up to 15 it's only for a bit. It's generally more around 11.

Thank you for the kind words.

My next mod is going to be an EBC hoping that will steady out my boost, I'll set it to 14psi and put my tires down to 25psi and see if I can shave a few tenths off.

You have the ATS external wastegate kit on there right? Do you have a wideband on your car?

No. It is internally gated.

I have a wideband, but it's not wired up yet.

I would save some money for the ATS external kit before I bought a boost controller. The internal wastegate on that turbo is horrible.

BTW.. my stock fuel system was maxing out at 13psi.. it would start leaning out to 12.3 to 12.5:1 AFR

I feel like I could make my own kit, if I could get someone to build me a screamer pipe.

I don't really feel like taking my turbo off though... so I may get a EBC to help maintain boost out of pure laziness. Plus I'm saving up for some non car related things so money is tighter.

^My first run, a 14.2, iirc.

That's vs. a turbo tC, btw.
