I'm told that with I/H and dual mode exhaust I should gain 30WHP.....not sure about TQ.

My MAIN goal with this was to drop boost to run a lil safer level so I'm not too concerned with the gains....but it will be nice :P

SHOULD put me over 600WHP

Likely all the pics he took ^

Pulled the trigger on some new speakers, amp and adapters and will install hopefully late next week after I get my car back from the cam install.

DON'T want to add weight with a sub/box and huge amp so this is what I went with:
Shop had on test wall and they sound INCREDIBLE!

Sounds great in person! Subtle "lope" but idles great. Car does not rock at all. No freeway drone....pretty happy with it so far!

Cam sounds good! Nice little power bump as well. Did it reduce the boost pressure as desired?
