I'm considering the the Kooks in 225/50-15 instead of 225/45's, heck if Falken had actually come out with the Azenis 615 in 225/50/-15, that would've been my choice.


Thread hijack.... Sorry.
I mean dont get me wrong I love my 225/45/15 koooks....they are the nicest street tyres I have ever had the pleasure of owning and I have had some nice street tyres in my time. But when you start making the kinda power we are its hard to get street rubber to hold it, unless you are dropping 245's under the rear.

When exactly are you spinning? I am curious because I would think that with both of us at 16psi we are close to the same power output. I think 16psi isnt crazy fast but its fast enough to hand most people their *** on the street.

The hydra will give you more of what you want- power. I made one datalog run, made minor fuel and ign changes, then went back out and made another run and instantly had more power. 3000rpm - before=3psi after=3.3, 4000rpm - before=9psi after=9.6psi. No signs of knock, so there's still more to gain.

Oh being a DD, I can understand. I actually traded a set of stock alloys for a new set of nitto drag radials, so I haven't had any breaking loose. Don't know if that's good or bad.

So the real skinny... how fast can you go with a untuned $200 turbo and $175 manifold?

Conditions:
205/50R15 Falken Azenis
Full Tank of Gas
**** poor driver
Hardtop installed
Vehicle weight ~2700 lbs with driver

Results:
Poor 60' times, wheel hop issues, and no traction in 3 gears.

1st Run:

12.93 @ 115.77 MPH
60' 2.23
1/8 mile [email protected]

Best run: (two passes at 12.76)

12.76 @ 115.21 MPH
60' 2.16
1/8 mile [email protected]

The car pulls hard up top, but can't plant the power off the line. If I run my drag radials next time, I think that 12.20's are within reach.

dayum mark nice times, you need more tire though. I bet with better tires your 60' will drop a ton and et and mph will go up because of the extra traction....Impressive

I just notice you rotated your wastegate flange 90*- sneaky. You keep doing stuff like that and you'll have an american made chinese header.

12.20s? Hmmm... sounds like a showdown in the works looking Andy's sig. Oh - but he'll be running 11s with the hydra and new IC setup.

LOL, Ya, well the Tial didn't fit right the other way. So I twisted it. I am sure that Andy's car will remain faster than mine. I don't have the turbo, ported head or race fuel.... add in the extra few hundred pounds from my portly ABS equipped 10th AE and he'll be kicking my *** for quite some time.
