First drive! Open down pipe. Letís roll.

Way down on power. Wonít rev. 7 psi. Dang.

Next day, move timing from -2 to 12*. Thatís better. Twist the knob-of-power a few times and we are ripping at 12 psi baby. Woot.

Now I am learning new concepts about the difference between boost and volume. Maybe I should back down to 10 psi again until we get the wide band plumbed.

Yeah you'll probably be fine but upping boost with no information is a gamble

Me: ďI just need a down pipe.Ē

Robert (scanning the car as the lift goes up): ďUh, yeah, I think we can improve on a few areas...Ē

I simply can’t thank Robert enough for his time and expertise. I couldn’t have done this without him.

The improvement in power is significant. Even at only 8 psi, the car rips. Very pleased.

I'm glad it worked out so well, and thank you for the bottle of whiskey.
It was a joy to work on a car that is as clean and well cared for as yours!
