Hell ya that is a good time
your engine is a ka24e or ka24de???
with that time it has to be manual correct?
That is really a sweet time dont be convinced otherwise.

That's not bad for a near-stock S13, but overall it's not a good time.

When you get headers your time should lower a bit.

octane does not make ***** power it prevents detonation. this allows you to run higher copression or more boost
