OK, we got a Ric Shaw computer and a Canzoomer Stage 1 for everybody thats curious.

Place: Parking lot we met at last time (Kendall to 122nd, turn right, go straight).

Time: 10PM or so.

He also has the midpipe installed so come see how it sounds :D

Yay!

P.S.

I have a G-Tech Comp Pro too

Nobody interested in this? Oh well. At least I'll get to see how the midpipe sounds.

It was great to hear Javier's test pipe and ride in Yuri's 8 with the Greddy exhaust and Stage 1... the best part though, was having a near death experience when Alex took the wheel. I'd like to thank Alex for giving me a deeper appreciation of my time on this earth... Anyway I had a great time and look forward to Sunday's AutoX.

I figured it would be scary to be the passenger when Alex drives, from the way he talks about the car "he drives it like he stole it" every day

I like it

It's not quite as noticeable when it's got an extra 400 pounds in the car (Sorry lou. It's true bubba. We be chunky). But I notice it as a surge around 5500RPM. Alex did notice and bring to my attention a aparent power dip at around 4500RPM, and thats getting looked into. I think it might just be the mapping (Look at the dyno and you'll notice a power spike right before 4000RPM that dips a bit and then the big surge hits.

Still checking that out though. Anybody can recomend a good quiet road to do some acceleration tests with my g-tech?

The midpipe with resonator was dead quiet too. I am certainly gonna be looking at one of those puppies in the future me thinks :D

Its all good Yuri!:D Yeah there were definitely an extra 400+lbs plus Alex!!! You skinny guys should feel the surge even more!!:p
I did feel the surge though and I am in the process of allocating the funds for stage 1.
