What are all the mods on the car ?
I didn't think the stock fuel system could handle 17psi, on a 26 OR 27 turbo.

The CT-26 can't make enough power to max the stock fuel system even if you blocked off the wastegate port. The stock fuel system is good till ~275whp, the CT-26 will be lucky to make 220-230whp.

A CT27/20b @ 17psi on a 2nd gen will generally make 250-275whp, so it is very rare you will have a problem with those turbos either.

Now once you go bigger then that, you have to start worrying.

If you're going to be sarcastic and post nothing helpful, at least spell correctly, please. I'm asking a question because I don't know for certain, and you have a negative remark that does nothing to advance my knowledge.

At what point on a CT27 do you outdo the fuel system ?
I thought it was right around 15psi, unless I'm just mixing up what I read in the power primer.

My mods are CT27 [email protected], ATS 3" DP, Blitz Nur Spec exhaust and a drop in filter. I made 246whp on this setup on a dynojet.

edit:I forgot to mention that I also have the ATS side mount intercooler kit.

Yea I was around 17psi and made 246whp. I'm thinking about throwing an intake on to see if I can get another 5-10whp and maybe spool a bit quicker as well. Would an intake be worth it?

Looks really fun! Barely held off that SS. Were you getting a lot of wheel spin? I thought you would be trapping a little higher?
Yea the SS ending up taking the timeslip win by .0058 based on the fact that his reaction time was a little bit better, even though I ran a quicker time. I was getting a bit of wheel spin on my launch, but it hooked fine after the initial spin. I cut a 1.89 60ft on the run with the Camaro and a 1.91 60ft against the Mustang. I thought my traps were about right since I trapped 99.41 at 198whp last year and a best of 104.52 with 246whp this year.

246whp, nevermind your trap speed look good.

Some FYI for a new drag racer. The reaction time has ZERO effect on your ET or trap. I tell all new racers to completely ignore the lights, you can sit at the line for 6 seconds and still run a 10 second ET, the time doesn't start till you trip the beams.

Best way to improve your times early on is to ignore everything, the lights, the other car ect and focus on getting the best launch and nailing the shifts.

I'm already aware of that, but thanks for the advice. This will be the 4th season where I have drag raced, albeit only a handful of events each season. I was just pointing out that the Camaro actually took the win because somebody commented on how I held him off..
