the car boged on 3 run , when i shift into 3 rd the boost didnt go any higher than 10 lbs and on all the other gears 1 got 16 lbs instead of the 20 lbs i usually get . the car as a ****ty tune so ill get a tune and then, back to the track

Well if you want to get technical a 1.86 is wayyy closer to a 1.900 than a 1.700. And im going to ASSume that you ran more than once and this was your best run and most of the other ones you ran a 1.9+ 60 foot. Also with your power you should be able to cut some 1.6 60 foots.

And yes the 117 mph is good for as low as 11.7.

Maybe think about getting a UTEC with the Launch Control and Flat Foot Shifting capabilities.

Your slip is almost identical to my old ones with my WRX. Had a **** load of work done and the best 60 foot i could muster was a 2.0 (i used to run 1.8's consistently before the work).
my wrx (also this was on 91 octane)
60' = 2.0+
ET = 12.7
TRAP = 114-115 mph

I am also going to ASSume that your car was tuned on pump gas since you are only pushing 20psi. Get your car retuned and get a race gas tune also. You should be able to crack 11's on the race gas tune with your current driving.

And if you are having boost problems maybe you need to upgrade your exteranl wastegate spring, or get an external wastegate if you didnt get the whole kit, or get a new boost contol solenoid.

Remember is not all about the 60ft, shifting plays a mayor role... especially in a STi. With 118 traps I manage 11.6... I'm sure with a little bit more practice 11.5 or 11.4 is within reach on the pump gas map.

Practice Believe it or not this was done on 245/45/17 RE01-R. They stick pretty good.

But I also do other things to help out the launch like (setting the suspension, a little weight reduction plus I'm using a Hydra).
