That 550-600lbs of weight is going to make a huge difference. You've piled on sway bars and audio equipment that will only hurt your speed. You're basically trying to power a Mustang with a Focus motor now.

Given the added weight, tires, boost, and transmission I say that's about right.
On my old turbo at 11psi mine ran 13.6 @ 102, but I weighed around 180lbs, pulled weight from the car, manual transmission, and drag radials.

Light is fast.

CFM 65mm TB on Y2K Manifold
Full 2.5inch exhaust

350lb Driver and 200lbs of stereo in the car.

I did this on my G-Meter, but supposedly it is very accurate.

Is that a good time?
