You should be making at least 330-350hp and should be trapping 110+, regardless of ET.
I think your highly underestimateing what the e85 is doing for your clients car. I don't doubt he runs what you said, but on todays 93 pump he will not trap over 110 w/o some other power adder, race gas or meth on a 16g sized turbo, just doesn't happen especially with an ej205.

You should be shooting for upper 12s and in the 105-108 mph area. I ran a 16g on my 05 for a while, and with low 1.8 short times and cooler weather would run 12.6-12.8s in the 107-108 mph area. I never had launch control back then and would launch blipping the throttle between 5 and 6k slipping a hair and letting loose. I also had the rev limiter lifted a tad and shifted at 7200 in every gear and shifted as close to a flat foot shift as I could w/o actually doing it.

I'd say go back and try some more before you start looking into problems. My car ran the above times with 266/233 whp/wtq on a low reader dynodynamics which was approximately 310whp on a known high reading dynojet.

keep us posted and good luck
