Aside from your problems... you are losing cause you aren't playing to your strengths.

If 6spd, why not start at 40mph in 2nd gear, no shifting needed to 80mph.
Being a heavy AWD vs Light FWD, starting from a dig is your advantage, not from a roll.
Fix your problems and then see how you do.

O2. Are going back in on Thursday.
I'll start looking for a boost leak and see if I have a nasty one.
But I would also like to clean the carbon out of my motor, What would be the best Way.?
What kind of datalogger would be a good choice?

You dont just look for boost leaks, make a pressure tester and test for leaks. Best way to clean carbon out is sea foam.

Ummm, really? Wow...

First, agree with all who said you NEED O2 sensors.

Second racing a car without even a proper tune up is not only asking, but begging for big problems. You won't push past low low boost until fuel mix is correct, that's how Mitsu prevented you from blowing your barely running engine while racing the Neons.

Plugs, wires, fuel filter, air filter, pcv valve, o2 sensors.
ALL of those should be NEW or like new condition if racing anything ever.
AFTER, and ONLY after a full tune up should you open it up.
Without a full tune up at the least you are limping a horse with a broken leg around.
Check your ECU codes! There's a reason I call them MisterBitchy's, the computers are picky and want every sensor working right or they run bad and get worse mileage.

I got a racing drop in filter $30, 10MM wires $115, Pulstar IR plugs $120, PCV valve $6, Fuel filter $10 FIRST thing, before I drove it far or hard at all.

The basic tune up/maintence gave me a real platform to develop power with.

You're trying to build a house on a cracked foundation without proper tune up first...

How much boost can you safely run? As of now, your computer is forcing it, 6PSI.
There's major problems and the computer is holding it back.
You can force turn it up, but you will only turn up your problems.
Use oil flush when you change your oil for sure the next few times.

Oh, and a neon can't keep up with these cars top speed, braking, or cornering at all...

Aren't the high end neons pretty similar to lancer evos?

If you can get your maintence done and then at least some basic upgrades you should be able to almost keep up or beat them.

The only cars I've seen remotely keep up in an off the line dig race were over 600HP with really advanced traction control systems, if you have clutch left they won't...

Oh I was Not saying I don't need o2s. I know I need them They are going in tomorrow.

The Way I know How to do SEA FOAM is through the main vac line, is that OK?

also I need something to be able to read my a/f ratio and also tune it. Is there something I can buy to do both?

I would scan my system But for some reason the OBD2 plug doesn't work.

Get an safc2 or flashable ecu/conversion harness/tactrix cable, datalogger setup, and an aem wideband. Tune with first, monitor it all with second, monitor af ratio with third.

It would REALLY help if we knew what year and what mods you already have other than a boost controller.

If you are using a 95 ECU, it's a hybrid, not OBDI or OBDII... well it's OBDI with an OBDII port. Google search site:3si.org Paper clip, that will tell you how to pull the codes on a hybrid ECU.

I would suggest getting HHH logger, or even evo scan. Just make sure it is compatible with 94/95 ECU
