Stock zcp tire pressure for the drag strip?

I've been going to the drag strip since I got my car and traction was never an issue.
Last time I went I ran a 12.601 at 110.98 (primary cat delete) without touching my tires psi and barely any tire squeal.
This week I'm getting a stage 2 bpm tune and I'm thinking I may have some traction issues.
Any recommendations on front and rear psi on stock zcp tires?

Are u DCT using launch control? It really depends on the track prep that day. Before I went to drag radials I would start around 30 in the rear and eventually work my way down to mid 20's. don't do burnouts with radials and if your getting 1.9 60ft on stock tires your doing ok

yes I am dct and I never broken 2.0s 60ft but I do have gts dct software and it launches perfectly at 3500. I'm going to try 25 Ish and let's see where that goes. Thank you for your response
