      Is it Friday yet? I feel like a kid waiting for christmas tomorrow.

      You should get the run files from your dyno so we can try and overlay spool and power difference between my T4 .68 6265 and your T4 .81 6766.

      I never used Nittos but I tend to either go with top tier or very low tier for tires, depending on what I'm after (basically, I've never gone any lower than top tier).

      I've been using Michelins and Goodyears and I usually get them when deals are around so I see no reason to change (I got my Michelin PSS for only $20 more per tire than Hankooks...no brainer!). If I did want to go with a lower end tire, I've liked the Hankook V12's and they seem to be the best bang for the buck if you are paying regular MSRP prices.

      Given how incredible your car is, I personally wouldn't mind paying a bit more to get the best tires I could (and I did already for my car, which is stock) since they are the only thing holding all that power to the ground. It would be a shame to lose it all because you wanted to save a few bucks on rubber.
      If your gas cap light comes on even if you think you tightened the cap, try pulling on the cap as you tighten it. Worked for me.
      Help us with suspension specs!

      Fuel pump and regulator installed and plumbed. Turbo going on right now, dyno tomorrow (Friday). UM has software up on the server ready. Will post vids and results very soon now.

      Also, the Forgeline ZX3R wheels ship on Friday, so I expect to have them next week.

      I'm soooo excited. Hope my motor or tranny doesn't sh*t itself.

      If it does; just drop in a 3.6 Manual and turbo that...

      seriously though

      Good luck, and can't wait to hear the first round numbers

      Exactly! Gotta have the best on the job.

      So a quick update, the reassembly took a little longer and dyno runs are this morning. Just leaving now. More updates to come this evening.

      they are down at the dyno as i type this. we were working out little details here until 11 last night or so, making sure we had all of it as sorted as can be. it was nice to see it all clean and on the road early this am. though i am sure our neighbors now hate us again

      Modified fuel rail had restrictions so we couldn't run boost beyond 27lbs and RPM about 6500. But at that point was 654hp at the wheels and 538 lb-ft of torque. BTW, this is on pump gas.

      Video needs to be pulled from my camera and processed. Will post tonight. Back on the dyno this coming week to finish the tuning once we resolve the fueling.
