the other day i got a free ecu update, so i decided to take some short clips
here is my first attempt
...and then.....about a half mile down the road at a stop light i got pulled the cop didnt write me a ticket but did comment on how hard he was trying to catch up
nothing to bragg about here but im just sayin..... its a good tune. and drive safe
i think it pulls harder, idk maybe its just my mind but CEL is gone and i can feel the torque just pulling and when im around 5-7k the tires start squealing in 1st, 2nd, and 3rd gear
i filled up right before the last video and that 300miles to a 3/4 tank isnt too bad for hitting redline like that
idk but i was going to dyno this thing before and after the update. but Fred said he was gonna do so this wknd and id rather save my $50. soon enough we will get a 2009 dyno sheet. i also think i read on C2's facebook page that they did succesfully tune a 2009 2.5l
Washed it, then got it really muddy while a friend took some pictures.
Clamped all but 2 pieces into the jig for my s/c plenum. Im feeling lazy so no welding.
More images will be added to my build thread.

i f ucked a part that transfers the electricity to the rest of the car... ugh.
therefore i discharged the battery, and it now wont start.
anyways i'll buy the part tomorrow at the dealer.
My dyno will happen this week regardless. so dont worry
god i love my car. it may not be fast, but it's crazy fun!
C2 stage 2 TURBO!!! ACHTUNG!!! 2.5liter 5cylinder contents under pressure!!!
Thats the part that i broke.

im hoping... lol.
worst case, i have to wait 3 days.
lol.. just got back from the dealer (1 mile away from work)
the part is 31.50, and overnight shipping is 7.50, with tax and all, it ended in 41 or 42... not bad.
it sucks that they have the most useless things in stock... but oh well... its just one more day.
Install tomorrow afternoon, test and drive/log on wednesday... dyno on wednesday or thursday.
sound good? videos will happen as soon as i have a driveable car again.
it was only 7.50 for the overnight.
i guess i can tuck some more wires tonight... lol
Almost done with the hardlines. I have to redo a few, I may run 3 little pressure gauges on the side by side lines to make it resemble pipeline pressure lines! Stainless is soooooo hard to work with
Pull trans and paint red.
Put battery back in the hatch.
Finish the air hardlines and get that installed.
Install the engine dampener.
idk maybe this helps
