Catless and increased boost.

ESP/SM would be the correct classes, for a starting point. Depends on which one you want to run.

2009 Rulebook

Basically SM is pretty unlimited...Street Prepared is more regimented ...

with the mods you are starting with...ESP would be your best choice...
-suspension mods
-Boost/ECU upgrade
-exhaust (no cat necessary)
-LSD's
-lightweight seats
-tune
-Stock Turbo
-cooling and Brake upgrades


SM
-Same as above except:
-Turbo upgrade
-more weight mods to lighten it up
-BIG WANGS..more downforce
-lots more things can be upgraded over the Street Prepared class

Depends on the site. Some sites have a certain decibel limit and the SCCA is moving to enforcing a limit across the board for all cars.

It's in everyones best interest to keep noises down as low as possible to keep the locals happy, and not lose the site, no matter what the rules state one can and cannot do. Sites are gradually becoming harder to come by...

We do not have sound limits for AR SCCA events however we do like to be good neighbors. We have already lost one site and we do not want to lose another. Registration is open for the event on 3/29.

You should be in STX, but you are missing 1 cat and have too much boost. So for now you go to ESP.

You may, or may not have a problem with no muffler. Most of our auto-x events are held at a city park (PIR), and there is a db limit. I live within ear shot and don't mind a bit, but some others do. Nothing like torqueing off the neighborhood.

(I've been having Adobe problems too...)
