Thanks Mike, yeah I'm very excited to get this meth working, it's in, along with the 2 step launch control, NLS, but need to talk to Shiv, still waiting on that, Both the meth and 2 step arent communicating with procede so Rob said i might have a faulty procede and that theyll send me another one, so i can get these working, Oh and a friend of mine want's to tape me "on a road in mexico" haha running a FBO GTR, But before that, i'd like to get those FFTEC stickers on my car, so lemme know when you get those in! Thanks again man!

Haha turned the boost up to 17-18 to see what it'd do around those levels, don't wanna go any higher without the meth working, but, YES clutch just started slipping in 3rd and 4th at 17-18 psi, haha so i know what you mean, it's sooo crazy though, wow very impressed with the kit, can't even imagine what it's going to be like with meth and 23 pounds, Everytime i get out of the car right now, i notice my hands shaking a little bit due to my nerves going crazy, hahaha. I love it! Even without meth right now my intake temps are sitting between 50 and 60 degrees in this PA weather, cars lovin' it!

I think i might know what is wrong with your meth, could be the same issue that JMARS and I are seeing. If it is, it should be an easy fix. I sent an email to Shiv, but he is out today, so hopefully he gets back tomorrow. I'll shoot you a PM.

Congrats on the kit. I too am running the VFF700 no meth at the moment. What PSI are you running right now?
A completely wrapped manifold will of course trap heat produced by the manifold and keep the temps in the engine bay lower.
However by trapping the heat, it is causing more wear on the manifold itself and could possibly lead to premature cracking/breaking of the manifold.

Just my .02

Manifold/DP have a lifetime warranty, and we have YET to have a manifold crack.
