Cools the IAT allowing for the tune to be much more aggressive. At the same time you get the benefit of consistent runs due to a flat IAT even with multiple runs, as well as an overall happier engine.

HotSpot cafe right off Hostetter (680) on Friday nights at 8pm. I wouldn't necessarily call it a meet since it's just a group of good friends but it's definitely something chill to do on a Friday if you don't already have plans

Tried doing my DP's last night in my garage. What a pain, everything is so tight in there. Even getting the heat shield off was a hassle. Finally got the pipes out, and I managed to snap one of the V-Band clamps. Just so happened today's Labor day so everything's closed, hopefully I'll get it all together and enjoy the new found power & sound tomorrow!

Any tips on getting the v-bands locked around the turbo&dp's? I tried doing the rear ones, as I had one good clamp and I couldn't manage it.

Oh no! Sorry to hear that. Hope that doesn't turn out to be the case...

I'm having a string of bad luck this month too. This is just the non-serious, non-personal stuff too, since the serious stuff sucks horribly with lasting repercussions to me .

- 2 weeks ago I replaced 2 rear tires (they were both relatively new, maybe 1.5-2k miles on them) as one was irreparable from a giant screw in it.
- Saturday night, just as I was stepping out of a cafe and 6 feet from the car, someone threw an Arizona ice tea can at my car and exploded all over it and drove off.
- Yesterday, someone stole my bag at Starbucks with some personal and work stuff in it. My uncle made that bag for me too . Luckily I didn't have my work laptop in there at the time.

Cheers to a better week/month to both of us and everyone.

You'd be surprise at how many shops there are in socal. I've had friends who drove to Socal for a day trip just to drink coffee and Lu was one of the shops.

Come down to San Jose/Santa Clara and stop by Detail Addict. I might be interested in getting things coded as well.
