      First mod


      Her first day of school


      September 19th we tossed on the APR intake and APR stage 2 chip (valet, 93, & 100oct)


      November...APR RSC


      Fun with a turbo R32...
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BkU7fDwdo3k





      Here was my first dyno session on 93 octane fuel and file on APR Stage 1 back in November/December 2010. (I never had a stock baseline )
      Mods at the time:
      Carbonio/APR Stage 1 intake, Noisepipe delete, and forge diverter valve spacer.

      93 Octane tune: average of 232whp and 267.6wtq


      ------------------------------------------------------------------------


      Fast forward to January and 23 dyno runs later in various gears, as well as 93 and 100 octane fuel and tunes (unleaded 100octane Sunoco 260 GT was used).

      The following dyno runs were conducted on a Dynojet Dyno (same dyno as above) at about 53°F and 22% Humidity.

      Current installed mods:
      APR Stage 2 software, Full Carbonio/APR intake, APR 3" Turbo Back Exhaust, Noisepipe delete, and forge diverter valve spacer.

      93 Octane tune: 247.86whp and 275.72wtq (I need to call the dyno shop and get them to send me the file with the Torque curve since it was left off accidentally while printing the graph)

      details

      ------------------------------------------------------------------------

      100 Octane tune: average of 262whp and 312wtq

      details 1
      details 2
