2.3l?

No, that's slow.

And having those Motegi's isn't 'better', it's just a different kind of heavy.

You should be ticking off 15.5's and less all day.

ya, an svt stock runs 15.5 ish. and thats good. a 2.3L would need a lot more power to make it that low. I would say a 15.9 or so.

i ran a 15.8 with intake exhaust on my zetec. and i had a bad fuel pump with maybe 18-24psi of fuel pressure. with a good pump and 60 i could have easily hit 15.4~
had a 2.497 60.

93 octane definitely if you have it available. at least 91.
