Im running TP k&n stage one right now and I'm happy. Haven't had him look at it yet bc I was having issues with the car and it ran like **** (bad cat).

Then again maybe I'm happy bc it actually reaches boost for the first time now. Gonna datalog tomorrow and get him to tweak it.

I was just pointing out to capital that I have ran all of the TP maps, and after a pro-tune it was night and day with the way my car performed.
They have dyno tuning for a reason.
To each there own.

Cha soooooo i pulled my rear calipers n regreased the bolts, cleaned the shims and sanded the heck out of the sides of the pads. My right rears had been sticking and i found out why, i not only couldn't pull the pads off the bracket, buuuuuut i couldn't even put em back on after I cleaned them, I had to take a dremel with a sand paper bit to the sides of the pad just to get it to go in, and now it slides super smoooooth

oh and also found out what a huge difference new suspension/bushings make in putting down POWA
New stance

Despite it being a newish car the mods did exactly what I wanted. Gave me some rumble n added power, tightened up turn in and the squishy shifter play.

Went out and got a new wrench. Did both rear struts in about 3'ish hours. Car has "no" strut clunk anymore and the ride had smoothed out over the very minor bumpy roads. Strongly recommend doing this is you need to and haven't already, well worth the $8 in grease!

Add: Oh, yeah, and an oil change.

Found my coolant expansion reservoir was completely empty so I had to make an emergency trip to Stohlman to buy that super expensive coolant.
