I'm running race gas and map 8 right now and the throttle response feels really really good. The pull is crazy strong past 5k rpm.

I don't really have any smell at all but the turbo psssft-swoosh sound is definitely lots more pronounced. Group2 charged me for 6hours of work 90bucks (even though he did 7 hours of work). He had to drop the subframe to get the stock ones out which is what took so long. You don't have to do for non-XI cars so 4hours should be max for a RWD cars. Talk to Noah since he was the guy who installed mine.

I think I'm going to head to CarbConn this Saturday anyway to get a DP baseline dyno done and see if the IC comes in next week before the dyno Eric scheduled on the 16th that way I can tell how much more whp I got out just this mod.

Ran a 12.6 110 for the first run but it's crowded as hell right now and lots of break downs so there may be one more run tonight - hopefully 2 more.

Track prep is pretty good so far..

2nd run 12.51 111mph

I think I'm gonna try to 3k launch it and see how close to the stall converter I can get to for the next run.

Last run was 12.52 @ 111mph but I stepped down a map to Map8. Peak boost was 16.5 and ran pretty good. The new Map 9 on Jb3 8D4 is still too strong even with DPs. Gonna wait for the intercooler next week and see what happens.

PR closed around 1030pm - things picked up after 7pm and there were no more breakdowns. Overall not bad with 4 runs in the night.

There was a brand new Camaro RS that ran low 14s.. still had the dealer tags. Another brand new Hyundai Genesis Coupe but I didn't get to see what he ran. My last run I toasted a C5 Z06. I thought he would blast me but the driver was new to the track. Ran against a CLK55 AMG and she posted a 13.1s (the Z06' guy wife), beat her too.

Another GT500 broke his rear end off the launch - first run of the day too.. sad to see it towed off the track. Overall was really fun.. I'll see if I can make one more strip run before scooting outa town.
