Car is up and running now; we were road testing until around 730 last night and its pretty good for a base tune. There is some surging at idle that will get fixed as well as some knock. The car's fuel pump controller is hard wired for now and we need to get another module for the fuel system that reads the tach so it knows when to switch to a heavy duty cycle.

I cant think of the name off the top of my head but the black fitting makes sure that equal amounts of fuel get to both fuel rails instead of more going to the passenger side.

I'm uploading a couple vids of last night and should have them up in a few.

I always wondered about turbos mounted underneath or in the rear, is scraping not a worry? Or getting road debris/water on them constantly, or will there be some kind of skid plate/guard.

Or do they just not get damaged that often lol?

There is a skid plate in the IPS kit and it clears my chassis brace. They don't sit as low as they look.

I've scraped the screw heads that hold my skid plate, but that's all...

Pyroboy, you need to explain your user name to me someday... I'm a retired FF / Paramedic and a friend of mine used to be called Pyroboy... just call me curious...

I used to play with fire a lot as a kid. I started messing around with hairspray and big flaming stuff like that lol. I eventually started to try firebreathing and that was pretty fun. haha

I stopped a couple years ago when i was 17 after burning my hand pretty bad.
