Forgot my point but maybe it does that to be more efficient?? Anywho it wasn't like that until after using sport mode.
Interesting.. I've heard lower your revs, is the best fuel effeciency. This issue is only in Drive mode, not sport mode. When I use sport mode, it will shift according to how much my foot is on the gas pedal.

Nope, not even WOT. if i barely ease on the gas, it still wants to rev till 4k~ rpm. The only way to avoid this is just using the Manumatic function, but even then sometimes it hesitates to shift up, no clue why...

Quick question, has anyone ever changed their internals out of their NA; i.e Pistons, rods, ect... I was looking into changing the pistons and rods to lower the compression so I can turn up the boost.

Any websites or companies that you guys could think of would be greatly appreciative.

It has been on the car running for a couple if months now, tried to get it tuned this past weekend but the guys at the shop didn't have the definition. So, they called up ECUTEK and had them create a new file just for me so now I have to wait and go back in three months just to get it properly tuned.

Did anyone change out their speakers yet? What's the difficulty level of it based on your personal experience?

I changed out my door speakers and it was real easy. I also didn't use spacers/adapters. I just drilled the door and screwed the speakers in(put foam between speaker and door). Also the speaker doesn't hit window when its down either.

If you're getting new speakers.. Get spacers. By that I mean, new speakers are only worth it if they are good. Generally good speakers have large baskets. Hence why you need a spacer to accommodate.

That's my plan as well, when the time comes.

Are you happy with it? Do you think it will be reliable? Is this a DD

New speakers definitely need spacers. There's way too much air gap if you just drill them straight into the door. I put Alpine SPS600s in mines, but I didn't think they were with the money so I took them out.

I replaced the stock speakers with pioneer TS-A1685r. Their not component speakers but their worlds ahead compared to the factory speakers. Edit their 6.5in

I'm happy with it and so far its been a hit/miss on reliability but I'm still working out some of the kinks. It's only sitting at 5psi when it was on the dyno and it gained just around 50 hp to the engine. Below is the graph from the dyno. Let me know what you think.
