With that list of mods I think you're too late on the going crazy part. your set up just screams for something more than the 48. Nice build.

We could have definitely run more boost, but Rob requested to go a bit conservative to make sure the tranny lasts. The car still made great power and torque so we kept boost a bit on the lower side. Also remember you're on 93 Octane versus our crappy 91.

How's the car feeling Rob?

Thanks

Truly a different car than what I bought last November thanks to all the work you and the guys at Equilibrium Tuning put into it from the motor build and installation to the tune.

But don't take my word for it, did a few tears through the gears for the wife on some back roads out here and, judging from the screams, I may need to have passenger seat cleaned.

Honestly, 275 whp may not sound like much compared to some rigs on here, but it's plenty fun for me.

The VF-48 is plenty for now. Considering the most hp I've had in a car prior to the wagon was a built N/A ZX2 making around 155 whp, 275 whp feels like a freaking SR-71.

But a bigger turbo? Someday.

Looks good man. I feel you on the 275 doesn't sound like much it is. I just got tuned on my vf39 283whp and it screams.
