Most the turboed GTS are running somewhere in the 13s, depending on how much boost they are running, how well they are tuned, and how good of drivers they are. Hope that helps.

I know a guy with one. He won't say for sure what he did or how many pounds he has. He won't even let anyone look under his Hood.

I haven't been to the 1/4 track yet, so i dont have a 1/4 time yet, but yes based on my 1/8th times i can hit a 13 in the 1/4. But it will be a very high 13. The thing people dont realize is once you turbo a gt and a gts, the gaps between the cars shorten. It's no longer a big difference. The question is more how much are you boosting, how much you have built the engine and tranny(which determines how much you are able to boost), and how good a driver you are rather than if you have a gt or a gts. Because it is a lot harder to launch and control the power, so you really need a lot of practice at the track with a turbo.

well...
-I havent taken the car to the track yet (although the track is 5 min from here, sorry, i know, i know...). Im planning on running low 13's at 9-10psi (with high octane gas) and a set of good tires.
-I have the SF turbo kit (you can see it in the link in my sig).
-Im currently running on stock internals, at 6psi on low boost, and 8psi on high boost. My car is extremely rich, so I have a lot of undiscovered power to work on. I'll upgrade the internals soon (pistons, rods, valve springs) but the kit is very capable of producing 250whp with stock internals @ 8psi.
-The kit took forever to arrive, and the communication with the seller (SF customer service) was horrible. Not bashing, just saying the facts. You can read most of the issues in "the other site".
-Overall, I like the kit, it looks really nice (engine bay) and the car feels great. The kit has some issues, like small problems with the manifold (manifold leaks), downpipe not aligned correctly, and small issues with pipes fitment that, in my case, were corrected by us (installers). I'll keep tuning my car, take it to the dyno (again), and last but no least, to the track. Hopefully, I'll let you guys know how it goes (with videos, yeah!).

Take care...

I noticed that the C2 kit looks like it has s CAI filter position. unlike the SF kit that is directly under the Hood.
