I am sitting here drinking coffee, just got done eating my honey bunches of oats for breakfast... Mike what did you do to get a decent camera angle with your gopro? I was using the head gear/harness thing that it came with yesterday and it is obviously to tall.

Very nice, Steve !!!!

You say that you have no idea what your AF ratio is.....I wouldn't either. Theres no way I'd look over at the laptop driving that nice ride.

The blower sounds great !!!

well that was a lie... sorta... I just didnt bother looking at it this time, if you look at it all the time you might wreck the car.

Put the computer up on the dash in between the steering wheel and the wind screen, kinda like you are texting.

Congrats Steve! Really impressive how well she runs already considering the small amount of actual tuning you've done! :cheers:

Now get those break-in miles behind you so you can pop that other pulley on there and really see what she's got! :cool:

Yeah i have been looking at pulley combinations... looks like my 6.625 crank pulley will get me to 10psi or so... then add a 2.7-2.8 upper pully to get me upwards of 13-15psi

:rock:

Nice strong, linear sounding pulls...the gauges show you aren't moving very fast, but the road whipping by says otherwise.
( haven't you calibrated the speedo?)
I can only hope mine will play as nice as yours does when I start pounding in boost.
