Ah I see. I ask because I only have access to 94 where I am. Trying to decide if it's worth it just on 94. I haven't been able to find many videos or reviews of it.
I would say it’s worth it. Still a significant bump over a full bolt on stock turbo on 93

If anyone is in Florida and wants to meet up at PBIR this upcoming Friday let me know!
I’m going to attempt to break into the 13’s.
Anyone have any suggestions on launching with stock all seasons ? I tried dropping the clutch once and got absolutely terrible wheel hop.
Should I air down the tires a bit, avoid the water box?

Take your front wheel tire pressure down to 22psi. If it wheel hops, take it down to 20psi. Pressurize your rear tires up to max pressure.
And ABSOLUTELY avoid the water box.
Enjoy!

That is a nice mph. I would think that you bogged a bit with that 60' causing lag, but the mph shows you're making good power up top

Close, but no cigar! The wheel hop was TERRIBLE. I had to let off the throttle and roll back onto it, killing my 60'. I need a RMM. Can anyone recommend 27won or hasport? Don't want it too harsh, but I need to eliminate the wheel hop. Also, still on stock all seasons.
82-85 deg

Just realized I never updated this, went to orlando speedworld back in october had Rev9 2.5” DP/FP, Stage1 TSP, Cobra race and happier 62a with some Rota’s And small 215/40/17 tires but got a best of 13.9 it was all in the 60ft. Will edit in pics of slip later but was happy with that! Since I have removed the Cobra, have better tires still small though at 225/40/18’s and back to stock window welded mount. Car feels quicker and still on stock clutch up to 44k miles now! Doubt I’ll go back anytime soon as picked up a designated drag car in my 83 Notchback wit my old 347 plugged in it!

Here is the run inside the car:

Here was a 14.1 from outside the car:

Since you have the launch dialed in, can you give us some advice? RPM, using launch control, etc. Can you recommend a RMM to use? I am getting crazy wheel hop. My trap speed is good, so 13's must be in the 60'

2.1 60ft will get you around 13.8
2.0 60ft will get you around 13.6

A 2.25 60ft seems to be the sweet spot for you on hitting a 13.9. ;) Have you tried any tire pressures in the front lower than what you have been using? Your rear tires are inflated to the max right?

Remove any weight from the trunk if you have something there (spare tire, jack, etc).
Lowered the front to 22ish, the rear has the stock 32 psi. Trunk empty. I'm sure im releasing the pedal too quick or applying too much throttle. Either way I need a RMM

Those 60s are not good. Consider getting some drag radials maybe.
