16.5 if you're lucky. The slush-box kills it.

I think you should run a low 16. My buddy ran a 16.5 in his 05 2.0D auto.

I ran a 14.5 @ 96 in my d23 mtx with a bunch of junk done to it a month or so ago out at milan. It was hot as hell (90) and humid as .

Stay in the right lane if at all possible i NEVER seem to have luck in the left lane out there.

I guess you will run a 15.9
