Oh I never said it wasn't possible, but there's always more to the story.
For reference, the same night a buddy of mine ran his 2008 Mazdaspeed 3 and didn't get higher than 93mph at this track and he's a great driver.
He was even running without a cat.
A lot of variables go into a 1/4 mile time, and there can be a huge difference between tracks.

Track to track can be a big factor. Some have great traction some are almost like launching on the street. The track I race at is at 1500ft but some of the bracket racers bring the air calculators and with corrections most of the time my track works out to be around 4500 ft elevation!

Here is what I did with that same turbocharger in a 3700 lb race weight car at 20 psi.

The DA (Density Altitude) for that day was 2696'.

Nice run in the TC. :)
20psi is really pushing that IHI.

Too many people just go larger and larger on turbo size without needing to. Yes 20 psi was pushing that turbo hard but I did it for years and when the turbo came off the car it was still in good condition with 185k miles on it. IHI builds some great turbochargers! My friend built a turbo ZX2 and had great luck with water alky injection plus a good intercooler on a stock Zetec motor. He can run 15 psi with 92 oct. pump gas in it. His turbo is makes the IHI you run look huge. It's a TE04 of a 2.2 Dodge. You might want to look into water injection it does good things for cars with high compression fragile pistons.

No Offence intended, but something just doesnt seem right. At 10psi you should be in the 250whp range and maybe in the mid to high 13's.

Do you have a dyno of the car... I would like to see how the power comes on.

No offense taken.
The car is a 2.0 Duratec, which puts it about 200whp at 10psi depending on tune of course.
I have not had my dynoed at 10psi.
As I stated in the first post it's tuned very conservatively to 91 octane.

Aside from the tune, the track conditions were not exactly stellar.
A 2008 Mazdaspeed 3 only trapped 93mph consistently, and that was without a cat.
I know the driver personally and he's a great driver too.
So seeing as an MS3 trapped 93mph on these conditions and my Focus trapped 96mph I'm quite pleased.
It should also be obvious the 60' time was terrible and shows the potential for a low 14 time with a 2.0 60'.

I know these numbers aren't as impressive as the SVT and 2.3 guys are producing at the lower elevation tracks, but all things considered I'm pleased and think the car is running just as it should be.

yeah its possible ... well on my 2.3L ST my best time was a 14.92 not sure of the mph but my launch was amazing and no tire spin it hooked and gone i was lol. but the rest of the times that night were 15.0s 15.1s

Mods on cat were Cossi Cold Air, Flex back exhaust, B\S and KW2 tires.

On a 2.0L yeah you will have to do alittle more to the car to get to the 14s but a fullt built N/A will do LOW 14s high 13s easy.

But with your set up that time seems good and more launching practice will get you down a couple of tenths
