    i dont know what 14.9 is comparable to at standard elevations, but that seems very high... a built Ls motor with turbo is an EASY 13 car. i know a few hatches with near stock gsr motors (mildly built) with turbos that are running high to mid 12's at only 7-9 psi

    but for all i know, this guys setup could have been SEVERLY untunned. (N/A full bolt on LS integras can get high 14's)

    or maybe at 4000ft elevation that 14.9 = high 13's at standard elev

    it only takes 210whp with a normal driver in a eg hatch back to get into the high 12's... thats with slicks of course.
    its hard to launch turbo hondas 1st and 2nd gear is useless with high hp. you have to ride the clutch and thats also hard cause most likely you have upgraded to a stage 3 or higher clutch.
    but once in 3rd gear they pull like mad.

    yeah guy has major traction problems from a launch....i asked him to go against me off a launch but he said he didnt want to..and yes guy definitely needs tunning..but no is being stripped..i bet he'll sell the engine next

    i'm confused..who mentioned a tsx?

    edit 14.9 is like a 14.4-14.5 at sealevel..also if he was on slicks i'm sure he would of broke 13's....reason he doesnt want slicks is cause he will break axels that way...runnin on stock axels..
