lol...a stock SVT runs mid-low 15s with a good driver. If I had the things I needed, I would be running what a stock SVT does, if not, quicker.

You are definitely not running out of injectors to be running lean. I assume you are running lean because the adaptive ECU on our cars likes to try to stay as close to Stoichiometric Air Fuels (14.6) as possible. So if you dont have a tune to richin it up, the car will run lean with all those mods, which isn't a bad thing, but you don't want to run lean all the time. Our engines like to be lean, so I was saying that if you added copious amounts of timing, ran it pretty lean, and just to be safe, had some race gas in it, then the car would scream. My 15.7 was on a rich tune with lots of timing and tires spinning, so imagine if I ran lean with lots of timing and no tires spinning...

if you let the air out of them to about 20 psi, go round the water hole and do a dry hop burnout, then launch at about 3 grand, you could do a 15.5@89. You just need your 60' to be a 2.2 or less.

I agree. Your trap speed says it all. Your getting out of the hole in a great way but are losing it at high RPMs. I expect you to kick some (more) ass when you get it sorted out.

thanks for the comments guys...it is a huge leak, the first 1/8th ive got most cars beat, but then its like agggg there goes wrx, preludes, h22 accords, gsrs, and of course svt foci...next time i go to the track i should have my kumho tires w/ rotas and i think im going also invest in a 2000 ported intake mani and the fs 4-1 header n flex..that should get me goin into the lower 15s, i love this cooler wheather..

about the lean thing, my chip has me right at 13...unless your goin with boost, or stg 3+ cams, stock fuel is fine, the chip will take care of the rest..g2g ill be on later..thanks again

13 is prolly perfect. I would ask your tuner to lean it in the top end (3500 to 6500) a bit and turn your knock sensor completely off so you rnt pulling any timing, so you can run some race gas. Will help your mph a bit.

yup...I wouldn't reccomend having the knock sensor off for street driving. My dad is an SCT tuner, so we have been experimenting with the car a bit. I drove for a week or two with it off runnin 93, and heard no audible knock, it prolly was knocking a little bit, but we were running the car rich then so...I just am pretty sure that lots of timing - 30+ degrees, with the knock sensor turned off, and lean A/Fs - 13.5, and 116 Oct. would be the perfect combo. I havn't tried it yet, but I do know that the car runs faster when it is lean.
