i ran 13.362 and 13.386 @ 105 and 104 MPH without tuned, i am still awaiting the green light from my mechanic as to when i can take the car in hoping this week he's kinda busy at the shop right now.
Aslo while i am on the topic can i run 25 psi with the methonal on my vf39 turbo?
My mechanic is saying that he will be able to push it to that amt but i am not too quite sure abt this what u guys think?

thanks

I think 25psi is well out of the range of efficiency for that turbo. Also, you're going to start really putting stress on your internals at that point.

I would say 20 but that's just me. I'm known to be a bit conservative. Also, I'm basing that more on my STi's setup because that's my experience so YMMV...
