Steeda shipped my Pro-Flow CAI and SCT X4 tuner today (87, 90 and 93 octane tunes based on my current mods preloaded).

Also, getting ready to pull the trigger on my springs, dampers, C/C and adj panhard bar & panhard bar brace from Steeda. Just gotta make it's the right components.

Ran an 11.04 at 130 the other day. Real happy with that. Then I raced a cammed/edlebrock blown C6Z from a 40 and 60 and pulled on him both times. Very happy with the car right now.

Put the car on the dyno today. No knock, I changed to a different gas station and threw a can of torco in her. I might try just using this gas station with no torco and see if the knock goes away, since I know it's busier. Saw the same timing, so the torco isn't adding timing just preventing knock.




Pretty happy with those numbers for pretty low boost. That's pretty similar to what a turbo car would make at that boost level. Not as much torque, and obviously different power curve. But still impressed! Bigger throttle body sounds tempting now!

Put a trailer hitch on it. XD Rocking OEM mufflers for now as the Borlas won't work with the hitch. Willing to do a straight trade, Borla S Type for GT500 Singles. Also rolled 129k

Sell yourself short lol. Don't expect a good time, just go and have fun. Launch it with what you feel comfortable with.

Removed the boss manifold, BMR upper radiator support, relo brackets went back on, BMR UCA and mount on. Got front and rear JPC lightweight bumper supports on the way. Getting ready to order a JPC turbo soon

Nice! Jpc turbo kit will be badass.

I want to order the jpc tubular front bumper support. Wanna get some weight out of the car. I think they claim like 11lbs? Pretty good

I like my BMR support. I wanted the BPS ones but expensive for less material.

Put almost 300 miles on it while pulling the new ski. 2016 Seadoo GTI SE 130. You barely notice it's back there. Really doesn't have any affect on braking/acceleration etc. Doesn't make a fuel economy difference at highway speeds but around town there's a 4 MPG decrease. Not bad. Pulls the ski off the ramp after loading with ease, no wheel spin. Gets tons of looks for sure but whatever I love it.
