...but not at altitude. Squeaked out an 11.97 at Fontana, which is East of LA and 110 miles from where I am at Qualcomm in San Diego. Decent traps, but poor driving - first time in 2 years and first time on this Exedy Twin HD, so the mistakes were my fault. 115+ mph traps were decent but not great - capable of more with some improvement on the timing, I think.
I was actually hoping to improve my previous 12.30 @ 109.5 in CO (before E-85, FMIC, IC pipes, IX turbo) to a 12.0-12.1 while still at altitude, so an 11.97 isn't that exciting, but this wasn't equal driving to my 12.30. This trap is good for low 11.8s or maybe a high 11.7 with my normal driving, but coulda woulda shoulda!! Got my 11 at least!
My turbo also has a ported hotside, but people don't go around saying "stock turbo with IX compressor and ported 10.5 exhaust housing." It's a stock turbo - I didn't say the turbo was stock.
I do... I always say "My car has a stock turbo with a megan 02 housing attached to a Megan down pipe. The stock turbo attached to a ported stock manifold and ETS lower intercooler piping attached to the compressor outlet. It is then fed into an ETS 3" Intercooler and then into an ETS upper piping into a 65mm throttle body and then into a ported intake manifold and then into a MIVEC head and then into a stock combustion chamber with stock pistons, valves, etc. and the process starts all over again."
By that time the person either looks like this or is completely gone...
