@dsbj and @lawwailok

my drop kit doesn't get here till mid next week. Then i still have to roll the fenders, install drop kit and get a Exterior Detail. I guess I really don't have to wait for the detail, but prefer.

So i am looking at least mid to late May. I guess if we decide that far ahead works best for you guys anyways. I'll let you two work up a time and I'll do my best to make it. I am more flexible. But need time for the mods.

I'm with VTT, the stage 1 even looks pretty good as a DD. But even the Stage 2 is looking pretty promising. If I were to do it, I would go with Stage 2 VTT. I have been following it on b b dot com, @rader1 is getting close to his tuning and have some Dyno's next week. I think Tony @ Vargas does the installs also, he will be doing my WalBro pump in the near future. not sure the costs RB vs VTT though.

VTT S2 is cheaper but RB has longer tests and review so far. im not for the power, im more for the new power curve under the whole rpm range is my goal.

I may upgrade but only after I blow my stock turbos. Then I would love one of the big upgrades but $6-9k?! Geez... That's a whole lotta dough.

I'm more interested in the flex fuel kit now. 420+ whp seems pretty nice. And I still have my catted downpipes simply because I like the sound matched with my PE. If/when I go catless, then power should be around 450 iirc. That's plenty for me.

What I really want is reliable power. I do not want to deal with broken pumps, smoke, whatever. I'd rather have less power than to sweat CEL's and limp modes.

exactly! that's the time when my turbos blow. i think just RB upgrade without running too high boost should be decent around 420ish at the wheel without meth/e85, just on pump and tune. i like the idea of bigger turbo cuz they do have different power band curve than stockie. but im just saying, who knows what is happening next year right? hahahaha. but this year i really wanna get my ass going is to put on dual big core oil cooler tho. running 240+ oil temp in a normal cruising condition is a bit scary. talked to my buddy who own IPB and he quoted me around $1700ish including the OEM retrofit housing since my damn 07 doesn't have OE cooler when built.

I'll be content with the stockers. Its quick enough for a DD beater and its already faster than even my Maserati. If I want to go any faster I'll just drive one of my actual sports cars lol.

Do tell... then share...

BTW, I got in trouble yesterday. All this bold lettering about no bra and booty shorts... left my browser open and my girl asked if I was excited about the shoot! I couldn't stop laughing. You horny pricks need to settle down. Gonna put me in the dog house. Lol.

BTW, @eric put it in bold letters, not me.

and to clarify, the photo shoot with the model is costing me $$. My photographer hasn't got back to me yet but adding two other cars the price is going to go up. I didn't bring this up earlier because I just assumed we where going to do our own photo shoot, with @eric equipment or @carlos equipment.

So I do apologize @dan if you got into any trouble, I just assumed you guys were going to pass on that, but we would do our own with no model. But either way you are screwed, your girl now has this stuck in her head, hahahaha good luck with that.

@vince,

No worries. It was all really funny. She asked with a certain tone and I couldn't stop laughing. Quite the fun scene at the local target. Either way, I'm down. She's cool. Otherwise, she would've dropped me long ago.

That's a big 10-4.

If you can imagine, I had to tell my GF that I was going to use my good friend Rene to model next to my car. Haha, awkward. But I did ask for my GF to model also, she said, no I'm not competing with Rene. Lol
