12, had it to 15 but i dont trust it... stock motor, than upgraded valve springs (LS6) and it has bigger injectors. but it loves 12 psi... i've been running 6, broke stock trans. Had a trans built for me to take a beating.. so now i just push 12. but if i knew internals would hold up to 15 man she would really go

Awesomeness!!! My goal is 300 HP after my top end rebuild with parts from wot-tech.com and my turbo install... you should get your car dynoed!

Traction, is there even a word for explaining this... none at all... even from 60 rolls.. I was running some very expensive front tires before and they seemed to grab a lot better than ones i got on now.. but if it grabs my torque steer is redonculous.

I've found some for my G6, and we have the same bolt pattern I think, you just need to look for a staggered set, and swap the normal deeper rear tire for the front :lol2:
