With this turbo I am hoping to keep the cars suitability for most people who might drive...including my heavy foot.

Generally the car does not feel as good with less than about 10% TP. It likes having a little more fuel running. I know that 10% is super relative now with drive by wire, but this is a drivers opinion.

There is a noticeable "hick-up" around 3200rpm vs. stock, but nothing that seems out of place for the mods on the car.

I still feel the AEM intake is robbing the car of power but that will soon be put to bed.

B/c the HP and TQ are closer together now, the car feels much smoother on acceleration. The change in HP up top is more noticeable than change in TQ.

If Junior wants, he can fly out to Portland and we can go right to the strip some night since I suck a dragging!

I am looking forward to putting on the catback and seeing what else Tim and Jeff can get out of this set-up.

And as always, thank you to Tim and Jeff.
The hickup around 3200, and the 10% TPS feel are a result of the larger injectors. There are a few fixes, although none of them are perfect. It seems there are some maps not exposed that are effected by injector size change. Jeff Perrin has been playing around with his map for months trying to get it smooth.
