Well look at you, Mr. Nice guy. You could have sold that to the dealership and no one would be the wiser.

Wouldn't be right. Besides, GPI is the performance division of the dealership that did the trade. They would know.

Composite (at least that's what I keep telling myself) intake manifold. looks pretty rigid, but if we break it we'll build one.

Not going to go real drastic to begin with. We want to get a nice clean tune for about 8-9 psi on 93 octane. Then we are going to see if we can tune it at the same boost for E85. If that works out we'll get some forged pistons and lower the CR to about 10:1 and go for bigger boost.

Thanks man. There are enough LLTs doing FI now that I think the R&D will continue.

WOWWWWWWW! Congrats on the new one and hell of a colour you picked their but hey I'm not biased
But still can't believe your parting with Gretchen. Can't wait to see what you do to the LFX but kinda sad for the LLT. Almost like we just lost hope since Gretchen is the one who started this all really. Regardless can't wait to see the build and congrats again and welcome to the pumpkin patch!!

Good luck with the new build Gretchen, it was amazing what you did with the LLT. Would be pretty badass to see you get the LFX in the 10's or 11's. If the LFX has that much potential it really makes me wish I would of waited the extra 1 month to get it (I got my LLT in July of last year).
