      They have been saying that for months but I am sure they are 100% booked by now.

      Our group that is coming with us from Toronto has been growing to the point we dont have any more room in our cottage. Some have booked at the Econolodge as well

      Its not sold out. I have to pay for my dog to stay healthy, that's why I haven't booked. I can get the govt rate though.

      Depends on which Canadia you're from. I still have the original turbo kit but I've upgraded turbos since then.

      If you had a Volvo that died in a fire then I remember you. If not I need to tap the memory banks some more.

      You actually need to watch that government rate. Lots of hotels base it off of perdiem rates and it ends up being higher than the normal rate.

      Its defintitely cheaper. I always ask after they tell me what the regular rate is. It also helps if you ask for the STATE rate. Thats usually much cheaper.

      Always good to check. I had to do a course in New Orleans and the government rates were higher than the normal rates.

      Really. They are pricey. Maybe make it $899.99, free tune included? That price would make sense to me.

      Iono, I think this is reasonably priced for what you get out of it.

      It's a really impressive piece of equipment. I just think it's priced slightly out of the market. The majority of people with N/A engines generally don't spend a lot on tuning, in my experience. Though the ones that do, tend to spend a lot.

      It's not too bad, just needs to come down a little. I'm not suggesting they sell it for $500 with a tune. But $900 with a tune seems more realistic to me.

      I'm hoping that in a few years, they'll come down in price, or someone will make a cheaper one. Maybe a used one is in my future, once my car is a little older.

      Will the Race tune from C2 work with my GTI cat back + front resonator delete, if I don't have the high flow cat? It says it's tuned for it, but so does Uni's and they responded that it would still work.

      I was wondering if I could get C2's installed, and get the cat later.

      What do you need. I've got some turbo parts I dont need. C2 (2.5 inch downpipe) Rebuilt Precision 5457 (This is the turbo originally shipped with the C2 kit before the EL kit was release) it has less than 2k miles on it since the rebuild. I was just running it waiting for by BT to come in. Other than that some randoms like BSH torque mount insert, some interior pieces, some water/meth pieces.

      I'm bringing a guy for his birthday, so we'll be trying to get into some trouble to celebrate.

      So where are we all meeting at? Econo Lodge parking lot (lol)?

      I'm getting more pumped by the day!
