with my previous focus I used to run 8.9-9.0 on street tires with only 224whp. With slicks my best was 8.4.

no, i wasnt..in the middle of it all, i would try to look at my boost gauge, wideband, rpm, speedometer and track.....i saw i was only running at round 17 lbs only, i have to figured out if it is the boost controller......we'll see once i track her again.

i ran like a 10.5 at almost 90mph on CHEAP 15" street tires on 14psi. i spun until 4th gear no matter what I did. high boost will spin rolling into 4th on the interstate so i didnt even try it. my sti runs mid 8's stock lmao. but much bigger better things are soon to come out of most cars.

High 8's for that horsepower needs a lil bit of work on the launch With my slo spooling turbo I'm able to hit continues 8.4's and Even I should be doing better that that with 280 whp With your whp with slicks I would love to see a 7 out of your beast
