and most-wanted,was your blue car an VIII or IX? its crazy how alot of guys get such great numbers will such little mods,and others with big turbos dont have as much success,im assuming its all in choosing parts wisley and good driving
I'm still on the ACT 6 puck... Twin disc will be ordered next week after I settle with Shell. But that's another story..

My first time in the track was this last Saturday and I made terrible 1/4 mile times 13.83, 13.72, 13.68, I made like 5 passes. I was using the 2 step and I left it at 5000rmps, my tire pressure where 30psi, I wish I had this information earlier and I know I would have done better. My 60' where in the 2secs range all the time, my mods are on my signature. Looking forward to test this settings out. One thing I trap 108mph on one of those runs, my other MPH where 104, 103.

With the car under new ownership, was the 124 trap with stock IX gearing?

Thanks for all the kind words guys. I am just trying to help out. I know what its like to be stuck in the 12's, stuck in the 11's, stuck in the 10's, stuck in the 9's. I figure the least I can do is help people out with the short cuts. As for the specific questions. The 11.50's were done on a stock IX trans/TC and the boost was 23-24 psi. The 124 mph on the car with new ownership was on an evo VIII 3&4 gear. But I will have to look at my timeslips to see what I managed on stock IX gearing. As for the one question about 8 vs 9. These times are in reference to a IX, but many with 8's are changing to IX turbos and have the advantage of the 8 gearing. So it does get a little confusing, but still can be used as a great guideline. The boost also on the 124 was definitely more aggressive then the 23-24 psi I used for the 11.50's. I'd like to keep it a little simple and use my 11.50 as the baseline and for reference as it was my car at the time and have all info. We can obviosly move forward from there as I kept pushing the envelope on my RS. I got it to 10.80s stock block, stock head, etc. And then down to the [email protected] on a built motor. If anyone has a specific question send them over. I am going to slow down a little on my own car and try to help others out. I will be dynoing this week and make a few runs also, but that may be it for a while.

Yup, you wont be able to do much with the two step at 5k. My min recommendation is 6400 and raise the rev limiter to 8400 Shift at around 7200 and run out fourth. The quicker the et generally the slower the mph... General rule... Your 60's should be 1.7 no problem and u should see 1.6's.

Estimated 375 dynojet... You have to remember this was 3 years ago. Long before 30 psi, E85, cams, Mivec tuning, etc....
