I've been getting out late the days you guys meet, so hopefully it'll ease up and I can get out earlier haha
We're there from 8pm-12am most of the time so you should be able to drop by for an hour or two.

I bought the box to reduce/remove the lag -- not for exponential power gains. After I'm done with my performance mods then I'll get the AA tune to make sure everything runs in sync with one another such as exhaust, intake, 3-stage intake manifold, etc. For the record, iirc, you can NOT run the PBX with the AA tune.

Don't worry about how your car looks. We just want to have a fun time. Meet new people, go for a nice drive, eat some free food, and enjoy the beach.

LOL I know that feeling very well. I met a majority of the members from the NorCal chat through the Monterey Meet a year back when my car was completely stock except for AE. Since then being on the forums and being able to talk to the "veterans", I was able to get the ball rollin' in terms of mods and in the last year of being on the forums, I've met a lot of good people and great friends. It's all a learning experience so just be out there

FINALLY!!
Eating some well deserved cereal after that time consuming re-install. Just finished a while ago...Took me like two and a half hours haha! I kept on getting an exclamation mark and my engine just kept cranking but didn't turn on. Took me like 20-30mins to find out I hadn't put in a slider all the way in and then I hit glory! haha Pheeewww

Damn.. my first time took 2hrs in the freezing cold. I will never forget that night... Also, you'll get that symbol if you switched up the wires.

Damn! I hate when it's cold and my hands are useless haha!
Yeah, I was just standing there perplexed and had to check the wires ONE BY ONE and then I saw that I had put in one of the sub-connectors into the slider "too low" so it wasn't even connected so I had to take it out and slide it in correctly then I let my engine roar!
Next I need to do spark plugs and maybe do a drop in filter to my OEM intake box haha

Hahah. To be honest, I don't even know the conditions of my PBX. Some days I'll feel it and some days it'll feel stock. Which map are you running on?

haha! Well it says that it automatically puts it in Map 3, so I'll leave it there I think. That's what I did last time. But idk. What Map are you on or recommend?
I think once I replace the spark plugs and drop in filter, they will make a world of a difference. I hope... haha

Haha you ever try putting it to map 0 and then driving? I did that before and missed my map 3 right away lol. I just got too used to it. I let my friend drive my car a little while back and he said he could definitely feel the throttle response difference bc he remembered driving another 3er before and said it was hella laggy lol.
