One of the best things about living in California (besides the weather of course) is the manufactures that have their business's near us.

A couple weeks ago I was able to take my baby to BBK Performance in Temecula and they used her for some R & D.

Here is the link to their webiste that talks about their R & D

http://www.bbkperformance.com/blog/?p=221#more-221

While Blu2 was there they added 1-3/4" Shorty Tuned Length Headers and a cold air intake.

I think I got a good increase overall.

Increase by 12hp and 14 ft lb of tq

Ok got my baby back yesterday just in time for Track Day at Willow Springs.

WOW my baby has a voice!! When you start her she roars!!

I found that I get the best sound when driving with the Paddle Shifters, especially around town. Not to loud but definately can tell she's running. It is night and day difference!

Special thanks to Alvin at Borla you guys ROCK!!!!

Here is a few pictures and a quick video.... (video is from my phone but I think the sound comes thru pretty well!)

Trish that looks good. But I was wondering why not blue? Because of your car color I would like to have minds red like that too.

Finally got to put my Haddad bucks to work.....

Took Blu2 to Haddad MotorSports in October to get her tuned...mainly wanted the AFM shut off but alittle extra HP is always good!

Started with 353 hp on the first run, and once Mike put a nice tune in we ended up with 367 hp and 375 lbs of torque.
