15.7 isnt bad I suppose. Is the motor stock? Any ideas if there is much of a difference if you have a manual? Ive never tracked the IS. I also have LSD, does this make much of a difference?

A manual is capable of running a 15 flat stock, that's what I did, haven't seen a faster stocker posted yet.
