Went to an open track day at Texas World Speedway, 4 hours of track time between 1pm-5pm. Track is open, go on and off as you like.

So I'm running stock turbos with VRSF downpipes, FMIC and exhaust, and a Cobb AP. Running a custom map based on the Stage 2+ Agressive Map. Basically put load down around 150 below 4000rpm, 190 between 4000 and 5200, and then tapering off after that. After 6000 doesn't matter, I shift @ 6000 mostly. So it's a 17-18psi map in the boost parameter. I also bumped timing about 2 degrees throughout the range and then put a couple gallons of 98 in with each fillup.

Car ran great, I was on the track for 2 hours out of the 4 hours. I also have the stett stage 2 oil cooler, but running stock coolant. Ambient temps were about 75F. No limp modes whatsoever, car was a beast. Oil temps didn't go over 270, though they stayed about 260-270 the whole time on the track.

I replaced the inlet Vanos solenoid last week, due to an inlet vanos limp mode I got.

These cars can do it. Have faith.
