How's my 1/4 mile time?

I went to the drag strip yesterday for a couple runs to see how my mods are performing. My best run was 13.86 @ 97mph in sport + using launch control.

I have an upgraded intercooler and charge pipe, Injen intake, catless dp, and BM3 stage 2 tune with their transmission tune as well. I'm also lowered on BC coilovers. The outside temp was about 85 degrees.

I feel like I should have been able to squeeze out a little better than high 13's, but maybe that's about right? I believe stock was rated mid-14's?

What do you guys think? My 60 foot time was 1.8 for those wanting to know.

Your car isnt making power. A 1.8 60 foot time is a great launch. Even with stock power, you should trap 103 to 105 mph. On BM3 stage 2, I would expect 110 to 115 mph trap speeds. Did you take bm3 logs? You must have massive boost leaks or timing corrections to only trap 97 mph.

Average N20 with simple bolt ons and a flash tune can run low 13s.

The fastest N20 on record is 12.636

If you can get your time down below 13.6 then you would crack the top 20...

that's not too bad really. post a log and lets make sure you're running as good as you should be.

I left a message with my tuner, but he's scheduled out until 10/15. He's going to double check everything and I'll see if he can get me a log I can post. Thanks guys.

Sorry I assumed it was a N55.
