Don't leave traction control turned on, but I can get low-15's with it on! In June I got a good baseline to start the year of dialing in. Mind you that I'm trying to compete in the "street" class. I can't officially compete, right now, because the program is on Wednesday nights, but I go on Fridays when I can, more so this year than previously. I put in just enough fuel to get me to Leicester and back to a gas station. I got three runs in on this night because of MOMS Racing program piggy backed test-n-tune night. The sub box was removed from the trunk, but still ended up with a few pounds of junk for the kids. Still carrying the spare tire. The spacers are shelved for now. I installed the dog bone mount with plans to get the short shifter in this month. Because of the program, I wasn't able to get as many runs in that I wanted, so V-Tune tweaking was not an option. Big lesson learned right there. I want to get a few more runs in with the current settings, so I can rule out driver error. Next month, August, I want to try a few gallons of 100 octane and plan for an upgraded intercooler. September and October will round out the rest of the year dialling in. Come next spring I should be more than ready to compete.UPDATE (12 June 2011): I haven't done much, but tweaking here and there. The weather in NY was finally fair enough for the track to open on a day that I was also free. I pulled a 14.72s with 20% boost over base and 1.75 degree of timing. I followed this up with a 14.68s with 15% boost over base and 0.75 degree of timing. Common to both runs were a full tank of 93 octane and trunk full of stuff. Not installed is the B&M shifter, WAI, spacers, and solid VF mount. The major differences were the addition of the 42DD exhaust without running 100 octane or WAI. I haven't quite hit 75,000 miles on the clock, so there is plenty of time left in her.
