looking to hit 12's quarter mile
 
Hey everyone

I had my turbo swap to a VF39 did not get a chance to tune as yet but was curious to know what i was running before i tune so i went up the track again ( ENGLISHTOWN) just did 2 runs.These are my numbers:

RT .437 .745

60 FT 2.149 2.018

1/4 mile 13.362 13.386

mph 105.29 104.15

What i wanna know do u think i will be able to break the 12 sec after i install my methanol injection and tune?
And also ZMANOSIDE good job and u were also right my trap speed do look more realistic with my new times.

Thanks guys.

i can't believe u made some passes without a tune on an upgraded turbo. i wanna say work on your launch but u need to work on a tune first. lucky u didn't break anything.

I know i guess i took a chance there also yeah i need to improve on my 60 ft.Looking to get my tune done this week with the methonal. Hoping to get some good numbers too.

yikes, a turbo swap and no tune is bad..a turbo swap, no tune and running the shit out of it is BAD. lol, told ya yer times were F ed up!! Get that bitch tuned!

you should of been hitting those number with your stock tubro, get a tune and get those 60ft times down to around 1.70's or so

boost_556 04-28-2008 09:23 AM

yeah guys thanks for reminding me abt my tune will be doing that this week for sure and will post my new times after the tune hopfully can get my 60's down too.

thanks.

with my stock TD04 i got a 12.85 was my fastest pass in it with a pro tune and i was getting a 1.63 60ft time im sure you can get a good time after the pro tune

wow good numbers i will be happy with mid 12's after the tune.

a tune is going to be limited by your stock fuel system. You really aught to replace the injectors, fuel pump, and throw on a bigger intercooler to go along with that new turbo. Do all that and tune it and you'll be where you want...

+1 to MOSC you will be very happy once you buy the fuel system and a intercooler, let us know how it goes

Hey guys i have all that on the car already so wont be a problem:)

mosc 04-28-2008 04:02 PM

well you REALLY don't want to drive much on different injectors than stock without a re-tune. That's pretty bad.

yeah they are sti injectors, but really wont be driving until i tune.Also i bought the METHONAL INJECTION BY SMC , will be installing this before i tune how much gains will i get from this kit.and how much can i turn my boost up to?

thanks

i had Snow Performance Meth kit and it was the biggest joke of all Meth kits out there, the pump looked like it came out of our boat for the bildge pump, you can run a few more psi but you can bump your timing while your doing this as well, i did feel a difference after i got it tuned but just make sure you have some type of low level light on your meth tank

mosc 04-29-2008 10:25 AM

meth injection ain't worth it unless you have an ECU that can react if it's not getting the right flow (hydra or similar).
