People seem to answer between 6-9psi is the go. But you'll need at least a rising rate fuel regulator, otherwise you won't get any boost successfully for very long.

Yeah chris is correct, between 6 - 9 pound, i am running 8 ATM, snort stage 2 kit, comes with rising rate lregs and 550 HP fuel pump to keep the juice up to it.

your Sig states the following

EF Futura
XR6 Head (shaved)
K&N PodFilter
Viscom 4" DVD headunit
Sony 600W Mono Amp.
2x Sony 1200watt 15" Subs
120.4 RWKW 15.6 1/4 mile
(Next plan)
headers (You either get exractor or you get a turbo, not both)
camshaft (if you change it get a turbo grind if the turbo route is what you want to go, more lob separation, suited to turbo apps)
TURBO! (see comment on headers)

a mate of mine had a el xr6 with a t4 turbo,intercooler etc but he had a standard ecu so he could only boost it to 10psi after that not enough fuel.
he took it to the drags and only managed to get 13.6 which i recon is pretty s**t

Thats not too bad a figure really. 13s for a falcon is well ahead of a stock time. Remember that there cars weigh something like 1600kg unlike some of the jap cars.
Also, depending on what other mods he had will determine if 13.6 is decent or not.
He may have only had a 2.5 inch exhaust (3" is best for tubd application), he may have been running 6 psi. His gearbox may be worse for wear etc etc. More details needed before you can say 13.6 is no good

A nissan GTS T pulls 14's with dump pipe . So in 13's is a GOOD time considering tune etc..

13's is what current (& stock) FPVs and HSVs do.

Dam all these new FPV's and HSV's, i remember when 13 sec was a pretty fast street car.

probably a budget install and I really don't see anything wrong with that time if its been done on the cheap. Good on him I say!
