Sorry for the delay....

Adam's supposed to send me the dyno graphs sometime tomorrow. But he told me that he gave me two tune one agressive tune (430RWHP) and one non agressive (420RWHP). Keep in mind I've got an auto tranny so my numbers might be higher if it was a manual. Didn't think to ask for the torque numbers for some reason. Either way I'll post that up along with the graphs once I get them tomorrow.

So on to the important part, the driving experience. Two words F'ing Awesome. The car's a beast. So far I've only gotten fully into it during the test drive with Adam. I was wanting to do it on the freeway but there was to much traffic. Cool thing is I was doing 80mph the whole way back with the a/c on and was getting 28mpg according to the gauge thingie. Before the blower the best I'd get it to read was 20 maybe 21 on a good day. Kind of cool to see that I got more power and more mpg when I take my road trips to LA.

Sorry no pics or vids. By the time I got back to SD it was dark. There are a couple things I want to touch up cosmetically. Here's the quick list:

Relocating the ps tank
Painting the bracket for the coolant resovoir
Replacing once blue hose (It's the one that was missing so they had to use some generic hose.)

Other than that the install looks really clean. Amazingly the pipe that goes from the tb down to the intercooler doesn't rub the tensioner like I've seen in almost all setup's using the paxton intercooler.

That's all I can think of for now. If I forgot anything I'll add it in later and put it in red font.

EDIT:
The intercooler fill's the lower grille perfectly. It looks friggin awesome. (Bill get you need to get one.)


Bill,Jon- I agree that the whistle while at idle and even while driving is friggin awesome. It's to bad it goes away once you get to cruising speed.

Thanks. All I can say about boostland is that it's a great place. Once you get there you never want to leave. I can't wait to drive to work tomorrow. Kind of makes me wish my trip to work was farther than 5 miles.


BTW-Your C&L intake, delete plates and UDP's are waiting for you.

Can't wait to see the track times either. That's all I really care about. If I'm able to run a 7.6 I'll be happier than a pig in **** and abandon any thoughts for more hp.

ic.. hey, somethings got to set our engine bays apart! We started to look like twins for a while.


whistle.. gone in 60 seconds may be a good thing. I think if it whistled constantly louder all the way to redline, it'll drive me nutz after a while.
