See that's funny cause I didn't notice his car smoking before he pulled out the turbo. He would always say that it was blown, but I just thought that he was seeing things... hahahha :lol:

I think the injection system is what enables me to get a decent time. I was boosting 19psi on the way down to the track. I had to keep up with 3 of my buddies who have damn near supercars i.e 700whp 03 cobra, 97 viper gts, 94 supra. So when they were hustlin I was really hustling lol. Even at 19psi my afrs were at 12.5 which is on the edge so I turned it down to 16psi for the track which dipped my afrs back into the 11's.

Hmm how is that possible? With a TD06 shouldnt you have alot more top end?

different setup, different tuning, no injection, heavier car.

good point. i would think that with his large front mount that would eliminate the injection advantage. how much does the 185 weight?

I was only running 12psi. The 20G really doesn't start waking up until 15psi or so. And yeah, the ST185 is over 3200lbs. My clutch was slipping a little also.
Best GT-S STOCK times: 1/4: 14.788 @ 94.98mph 1/8: 9.640 @ 75.87mph
Best Alltrac times: 1/4: 12.2 @ 115mph 1/8th: 7.9 @ 91mph

Im running the aquastealth solenoid kit but I upgraded my lines to soft braided and -an fittings. Im also running a devils own nozzle. The only reason I changed the lines is because Im running 100% alc so I wanted it to be alittle more safer. The aquastealth kit is basically like every other kit out there but cheaper.
