    i think about mid 14s stock.. though can be taken to 13s with just free mods.

    mid 14's stock?not likely

    bone stock with a good driver can break a high 14 with the proper conditions like stated in a previous post..other than that i have seen them run low 15's consistantly

    Its extremely easy to drop a first generation GSX into the 14's, all you need is a K&N, and up the boost to 16-17psi on the 14b and you'll run low 14's all day long.

    duh the 14b is better than a t-2 small. Only stock turbo that can get into the 12's

    a $40 manual boost controller and a fuel pump rewire is the cheapest way. I installed a 255lph High Pressure walbro fuel pump and an AFPR when I cranked up the boost, because it's a better and tunable way to get more fuel, and it's was in prep for further upgrades.

    get a K&N, cut the aircan to shit, remove the fibreboard intake silencer, MBC and fuel pump rewire and you should be hitting low 14's, high 13's all day long. Add a 3" turbo back into the mix and if you have a strong car and are a capable driver you can hit low 13's. I know someone who hit 12.9 with these mods, crazy, not too common, but possible.

    check out:

    http://dsmtuners.com

    EDIT: the above info was for 1G AWDs. The 1G ran from 1990-1994... I don't know what year your car is, but the 2G (95-99) is the same deal more or less when it comes to more boost..... you should replace the plastic BOV with a 1G unit if it's a 2G

    Go to www.boostcontroller.com and buy one of those. I'd recommend the Joe P it's the best on that site for the money IMO. Then you route the tubes from the MBC (manual boost controller) to the turbo's boost source nipple to the bottom part of the MBC (bottom being the nipple opposite the adjustment screw) and the other nipple goes to the wastegate actuator. Here's a site that explains pretty much everything you need to know about your DSM. Check it out. http://www.vfaq.com/index-main.html

    Oh and screw dsmtalk, they're a bunch of nazi's, stick with dsmtuners.

    Anyone who owns an AWD DSM and knows what they have is not likely to sell it. I'm VERY lucky i found my 2nd awd after my first was stolen. Good luck, you'll need it.
