What kind of other mods do you have? I think the best time in my '95 T-5R was 15.4, I was in E if that mattered. Fully stock.

I actually beat that Civic V-Tech and the guy got mad because he was doing some mods. LOL

i was running about 23 psi in my front tires and it was about 55 degrees out side and low humidity.

You cant run 23psi without an ECU change/update/replacement/mod.

Edit: Hah, thought you meant 23psi of boost. Just read it again. My bad.

i was running 23 because i found that would get me off the line with the least amount of wheel spin and the best time
when i put them down to 20 i ran a 14.7
and i have 225 45 17 continental tires
