    I found that I have the highest trap speeds when I leave it in drive with traction control turned off. Launching can be kinda tricky but I use something simular to what evil-r is doing with the 50 75 100. My method is 75 with the peddle slowly rolled into 100. I have found (not sure if anyone else has noticed it either) that if you hit the gas peddle and hold it roughly 3/4 of the way in the turbo seems to continue to build boost and pull but when I go WOT it seems to have more flat spots through the rpm range.

    I have done both off idle and the using the e-brake. E-brake definintly gets you better 60's. Off idel is normally for me a low 2.3x 60'. Using the e-brake I got a best of 2.23. Not huge but it made a difference. On street tires leaving on more boost than the ebrake method allows will just be wheel spin. Heck I still get some spin using the e-brake method as soon as the turbo spools.

    This last weekend I hit 2.168 60'
    CAI & BTR 93oct tune
    Hold down brake pedal and build boost, 2100rpm is where I hear turbo. let go brake and press throttle slowly. I spun a bit and ran a 14.1. I glad to hear a few guys are getting in the mid 13s.
    I need exhaust work next. Maybe IC too.
