My car supposed to be done earlier today. Got a call from my SA, they didn't have one the parts needed and the part would arrive on Monday.

Ended up, I have to live with the loaner until Monday afternoon.

Sorry about that bro, that really sucks



So I have pics and slips to post up but Im getting ready for a big party tonight.... so here is the cliffs notes.

Ran a couple stock boost so I could get a baseline log, then a couple of each of the following maps...

13.1-13.3 @ 106-107 with 2.0-2.1 60'

Couldnt hook up at all, which I really wasnt expecting to do since Im on crap tires, etc


Then upped it to Map 2 (14.5psi) for a few rounds

12.5-12.8 @ 110-113 with including a 2.269 60' where I totally lost it )

Then up to Map 7 (17 psi) for a few rounds

12.2-12.5 @ 113-116.9 (best mph): My best run of the night, after I let the car cool off, got a 1.87 60' , then on my 1-2 shift my shift knob popped right off! so I threw the knob in the passenger footwelll and continued the race to beat the subaru wrx next to me. I really think I would have gotten myself a 11.9X on that run...

I really just wanted to get a feel of how my car was reacting to my maps... and with a trap of nearly 117 Im a happy camper. Street trim, street tires, full weight etc.

It just really makes me want meth, an LSD, and tires for a 1.6X 60' and a easy 11 sec run =)

That was good times. Hopefully with me set up I would be able to be around 13 flat @ 105mph.

Yeah, FBO minus catback. For the map 7 runs I had 104 in the tank as well.

Also, I think that mph was helped by a tailwind from the storm rolling in. Prob an extra mph or so in there.

It was fun! Would like to get a group together and go out there sometime soon...
