I didn't get a chance to go on the drive with you guys this morning. I had to bail last night before knowing the details, and I didn't get home until after 4:00 this morning. I didn't check into it because I thought I wouldn't get up in time. But I woke up at 8:00 anyways so I could have made it after all. Oh well, I ended up driving out to a friends house in Monroe. And I can report these same improvements even with bad coils and possible low compression. The car drives much better and pulls much better through the entire power band. Cant wait to see what its like with healthy coils and a healthy motor.

So a few minutes after I left my friends place he texted me "I can still hear you". I was just cruising probably a mile and a half or so away. I dropped down to second and let the cars ahead of me pull away. I went full throttle to redline. I texted him back "could you hear that?" By now I'm close to 3 miles a way. He replied back "haha yeah I did!" I knew my exhaust was loud, never thought it was quite that bad though.

some impressive gains around the VDI opening point - actually looks like you had an issue there on your first dyno . What did MM do to rectify that ?

That would work with your Prius!! You already have a 120v source that could handle the amps.

...How bad *** would it be to make a sleeper Prius? Rip out the battery, engine, transmission(s), brakes... rip out everything and put in a Renesis (only thing small enough for that bay?).
