      Performance is amazing. Love listening to that turbo spool. I haven't gotten any numbers to report yet. I'll see if I can get one done in the next couple weeks.

      New pics today:

      It's because RAI didn't pay for a tune.

      Looks like UM didn't dyno tune it. Yeesh.

      True, but its already turbo'ed. Not too difficult to tune from there.

      Correct. It was thrown on there for the couple of major car shows that were in the area. I'll be removing it after a bit though.
