YOu got window tint repair order? Those suck huge ones!!!!

Try carb cleaner or brake cleaner on the window glue. It worked wonders for me. Just spray it on a rag and don't get any of it on your interior. **** does ****ing miracles. Rag, spray, wipe and gone!

I believe the OEM CL/OP delay is still in present in those maps, I have their Stage 2 map and I was pushing 8psi of boost and an AFR of 16.xx several times due to the transition delay

With that being said, I love the way the car runs now that I've cancelled out the transition delay.
So any one have a comparison from the TP maps and a protune?

I would rather spend the money than have to spend the amount of time I have on scrubbing. Thanks!

I had Eric's map for a few months and I thought it was great, until I went for a pro-tune at TXS. Just let me say that Jermaine was not impressed at all.
I had Eric tune it for stage2+ or 3. Full tbe, intake, 3port ebcs, and a front mount. Can we say only 230whp on the dyno pac. It was so disappointing.
Pro-tune was 300whp 331wtq. All I can say is it felt like a whole new beast and I'll never do a
e-tune again.

Are there huge reading differences between the dyno pan and Dynojets? My car made 295whp and 336wtq on Mach V's dynojet. NP axleback, CNT catless DP, and a K&N air filter are my only power mods.

EDIT: I just realized you have an 08, I was comparing apples to oranges.

That's ok.
Your car on the same dyno different days will make different power.
But a dyno is only a tuning tool.

Yesterday I installed a new alternator with with a casing liquid powdercoated by Dangerous Atom here on NASIOC. Metallic silver spec looks outstanding!

Right now I am getting some serious help changing both valve gaskets.

Something feels so right about getting a car in the right shape.

Ugh! I hated my CT tune... I went to Jermain at TurboXS. One word, AMAZING! Car feels alive, clean, crisp and smooth. With my CT tune the car felt heavy, bogged down, Unresponsive and boring. The at feels like a whole new animal and it's just a stage 2 AP...

Promise. I'm sure If you contacted Jermain or Raj at TurboXS and tell them Bobby sent you they could help you. You won't be dissapointed.

Hell yeah.
Brad might not even need a tune to get there as long as he stays out of boost.

I saw the forecast, ditched class yesterday n headed for the RIC. got into town around 4, started wrenching around 5pm, took a break around 8pm to eat, and stopped working around 8am when I went to get the car aligned. Successfully installed new springs/struts, rear diff bushings/Xmember bushings, and a ton of things in the middle (top hats, braces, etc). Car felt amazing, i fought with getting the stoopid eibach camber bolts set but somehow I set it spot on, alignment dude this morning said that other than my right front, everything was within .5 of the specs i gave him. Anyway, finally got a nap around noon n still feel exhausted but have a paper to bang out before midnight so here i sit on nasioc

Weak is correct.
Buy your parts and save for the pro-tune.
