At Sears Point I was able to run 13.976 with full weight and 3/4 tank of gas, stock. Also you may want to play with rear tire pressure. You have to get your launch just right or you will most likely just end up spinning the tires. If you can modulate the throttle well or slip the clutch then experiement between 2K and 2750rpm, anything higher and you'll probably just be making smoke and looking at his tail lights.

I'm running against a friend's modified S4 (chip and exhaust). He's running 13.5 in the 1/4 mile. Is there anyway to get my M Coupe to run that fast? My car is sharked and has the ECIS CAI. What else can I do to squeeze more power out of it?
