Went to the track last Sunday for the first time since installing my turbo setup and ran a horrible 9.8 at about 13-14psi with a 2.45 60ft time on street tires. MUCH more practice is needed

Well, i have my car back n have been working on it so much. new brakes, powers steering, traction bars are on; waiting for shocks, springs n slicks to test it out to the fullest.
With the Apexi AVCR, u can have different boost at different gears. I have to call apexi tomorrow on my lunch break and talk to tech supprt. i got plugged on sat but dont know how to set it back. I had done one but need to redo it.
