I can't wait to get a baseline tomorrow so I can throw everything on the car. I'm hoping for 400whp with just tune, dp, and fmic. That might be a little greedy though...
Those mods aren't enough for 400whp I believe. I have JB4, intake, DP, AMS FMIC and I don't "think" i'm getting that much. I'd say around 350-370whp is more realistic...maybe even less lol. Good luck.

agreed...especially on DTP's dyno dynamics dyno. i dyno'd 385whp 433tq a few years ago and i was fully bolted on ms109 running 19psi with a rev2 Procede. however, today's tunes have come quite a long way and are more refined and powerful than they were back then (as seen in the new Procede rev3 i'm running now). in any case...your delta will be more important than anything...really looking forward to your results.

I will either end up with the VRSF FMIC or GS FMIC. The crx package is nice, but I don't want to trim to much.

If you use e85 those numbers are possible. Without it I highly doubt you will see 400whp with those mods. It all depends on which type of dyno you are on. Dyno-jet seems to be most accurate from what I've seen.

400 is a bit of a reach, but i'll be very happy with 360/400. That will be a fun car.

Bummer.....just got a call from DTP. They had a guy drive down from PA whose going to be running longer then they thought. Doesn't seem like I can get on at noon. They have 2:30 available but I have to be back on the OBX for work. Looks like i'm going to have to do it next week. I'm glad they caught me before I started driving up there.


I was thinking about switching to all-aspects. I figure since they tune cobb and are a bit closer why not....

i'd go with All Aspects myself...i had an appt set up months ago and then had the water pump issues...just never rescheduled. they did an RB turbo upgrade there so they are familiar with the car...

also, i've tinted my cars at TNT in the past but just heard one of our buddies had a bad experience there with a driver window getting smashed out. sooooooooooooooooo, i don't really have a warm and fuzzy going back.

import, where was it you said you liked to take yours? are you running LEGAL tint? i've always done 20%, but not sure if I want to go that route again.

not sure if you're referring to that place out in Chesapeake......but i'd get with Randy(M6). i know he has a guy that comes out to him and does the clear bra thing....and he's pretty good too.

i take my cars to East Coast Window Tint right there on the corner of Holland and Damneck....never had a problem there. i wouldn't go any darker than 35% all the way around...but that's just me...its dark enough especially if your interior is black. i've never been a fan of really dark tint...
