Just got back from Newtech. Pretty happy with the results. Before we saw constant drops every pull from the heatsoak the maggie puts off. After the meth we saw very consistent pulls back to back.

We ended up with 553whp and 541wtq - This was with 1 7/8 Kook Lt's, adm street intake, 3.4 pulley on the maggie, mbrp exhaust and the coolingmist meth kit.

Originally we hit 487whp and 484 wtq - This was with stock intake, dt shorty headers, maggie, 3.6 pulley, and mbrp exhaust

So by swapping in the longtubes, adding meth, and dropping down a pulley, we gained 66whp and 57wtq , not to shabby!

Oh also Newtech posted the wrong comparision graph on the new graph for some reason, so disregard the blue graph. I can post the previous dyno graph also if you guys want to see it.

And you wanted to sell your meth....silly goose. I bet that car flys now. Becareful about where you are power wise without that boost a pump. If you have a meth problem while you are beating the car in boost you will have some trouble. My car ran out of fuel at about those same numbers and the only way we were able to not blow it up was the meth. How much did the fuel pressure drop in the higher rpm's? You may want to take you BAP out of the classifieds and put it in your trunk. Trust me, the little money you'll get for ut won't be enough if you have a problem.

Thanks guys, wish i could tint the side windows darker, but i dont need another reason for a cop to pull me over, lol.

Hey supercharged, my fuel pressure levels are all fine. My tuner had no worries or concerns about any fuel with my setup. I know alot of guys ran into issues around these numbers, but not sure why mine is working out. Must be the special crappy cali gas, lol. No pressure loss and my injectors are not close to being maxed out he said. I originally brought the boost a pump in just incase, but he said the current pump on the supercharger was plenty for my car. Hes spent a good bit of time tuning my car and i value his opinion. I always keep a ear out for any pinging or anything out of the ordinary just incase also. Im gonna run this setup for a bit and see how it plays out

The calipers was done by mike the powerdercoater on the forum. I told him what I wanted and he did a incredible job on them.

So today I took the car around a little to see how the new tune and powerband feels. Wow, this car is retarded fast now . Whoever needs more power then this is a little unstable . Traction went from horrible before to impossible now. Im still on street tires, so that should be next on the list of do's. Hitting it around 70mph in 3rd gear will break the rear loose. 1st and 2nd gear you have to let off the gas if you want to go anywhere or not end up sideways. The amount of low end torque feels awesome. Car feels very strong. Loving the maggie
