Should we try to get a meet in before the end of the month? Weekend of June 22-23 or 29-30?

Once it gets delivered it should be installed and corner balanced in a week or two depending on how busy the shop is. I ping Barry every few weeks. I am not in a huge rush or I would not have waited this long. I expected it to be installed in May so I am roughly a month behind schedule. I am very excited for it as I have never owned a fancy suspension before. I think most people on this platform spend all the money to go fast in a straight line and very little on the other bits which are equally important.

I don't want to turn the boost up any more until I can safely put the power down. The car feels all flighty and dangerous when it really gets going in 3rd. So basically, I am done tuning until the suspension goes in. Which means I can't get a dyno and see what I am making.

My goal is north of 600.

I just installed my coilovers and on my first drive afterwards I got a 2E69 knock sensor code + limp mode within a mile. I don't think the coilover install had anything to do with it, just a coincidence. The code comes back immediately after being cleared so I think I just need to replace the sensor, which is conveniently located under the intake manifold

Good time to walnut blast and or convert your BOV to 1/4'' if you have not done so already.

Which coilovers did you go with?

Walnut blasting was done last year (4k miles ago) but Iíll give it a look and decide if I feel like hitting them again.

I went with KW V2s. I didnít realize how fucked my stock suspension was until I put these in. Massive improvement in handling and I havenít done any cornering yet, need to get these knock sensor fixed and get an alignment first. Havenít decided on corner balancing yet.

I am honestly not sure if corner balancing is worth it. I'm still undecided honestly. If I tracked my car a lot it would probably do it. But for the street it is not going to matter at all and the car will not be 100% level as they are accounting for 200 lbs of me in the front seat. The second you add a passenger, 40 lbs of golf clubs to the trunk etc. you are now all off.

I may just get an alignment and be done with it. Even if I did track the car a good deal I would bet my lack of skill is more important then the car being perfectly corner balanced.

Yeah, I was quoted $400-500 for corner balance + alignment. Considering alignments typically cost <$100, that's a lot of money for a corner balancing a car that might see the track once this year.

Yeah that is exactly my point. A lot of money and I doubt my car corner balanced is going to make a lick of difference on the track with me behind the wheel. I'm 90% sure I am just going with an alignment at this point.
