Okay got my ride earlier tonight and had some issues not with the tune or anything else at the shop except they left the Elite Engineering Catch Can Connected to the bracket but not plumbed in?
My issue is with D2 AutoSports who sold me my wheels. I read all the nightmares of others, now i guess it is my turn? The wheels look smoking hot if they fitted without hitting the Calipers on the rear wheels. I had to run to AutoZone and get 5/16" wheel spacers and put them on so i could drive it home because my wife got ancy and left with my rims while my car was in the air getting the wheels swapped out. Well the drive is like 86 miles from Oak Harbor to Kirkland in Washington State. Then the engine covers i got from Darth Emma didn't fit, then Emblem Pros forgot to add the bolts for my engine bay Bowtie emblem, shall i continue with this day of misery? My damn back is killing me because i didn't know what i was getting into with the Blade Spoiler installation, climbing in and out of the trunk like a damn Monkey or trunk Squirrel, i will definitely be feeling the pain tomorrow. What else can i think of? Shoot i'm too tired!!!

Thanks!

Now if others could chime in with bad wheel experiences and give me some advice that would be great. But if it comes to consulting my attorney and going to court, so be it, but i don't want to jump the gun at this time!

That sucks about the rims... I was originally going to go with Giovanni kilis wheels for mine but after talking to Giovanni they told me they would need to weld in some spacers in order to clear the bremebos. This didn't sound like something I wanted to do so I decided to switch to TSW's.

If you really like the rims can you have spacers welded in?

question: you mentioned you are on low boost, I thought you were going with the 3.4 pulley? I thought that was a pretty aggressive pulley for around 10psi or so?

I am going to buy a 3.6 pulley, any suggestion where to buy? hopefully I can rip into the car this weekend to get the bad boy installed.

I actually went with the stock pulley, i figured since i already got everything else done might as well keep it safe till i am begging for more ponies, she breaks loose pretty easy right now!

New Sig coming soon!

You can pretty much grab a 3.6 anywhere. Try this site first. Then eBay. If those don't pan out any Maggie dealer can get you one.
