Mike:
Is this one an automatic? I heard that corsa is particularly good for getting rid of drone in autos.

After having gone through the header/exhaust steps before, I really like what headers do for sound more than the exhaust.

This setup with headers will be awesome.

Do I see a tune in your future with the new headers?

No auto this time, but the reason folks mention Corsa w/ the auto is the AFM noise when it goes into 4 cyl mode. LSA doesn't have that anyway.

But yes, it's still ZERO drone so with headers it will be perfect. I'll be tuning, ADM CAI, Headers and pulleys soon..

Looks like a race to see who gets headers first

However, it will probably be you. I want at least 5,000 miles on the car before I tune it. My original goal was 10,000 however being 7,000 miles from that goal I don't think I can wait that long!

Then you may want the Dual mode harness I'm selling over on HTCC. Bought it and now I can't use it with the new catback.

Hey Mike.

Long time no talk. Hope all is well over there. Car looks awesome as usual. I'm about to do my first big upgrade to my car here in the next two weeks after I get done with final exams. Just ordered it yesterday vroom vroom.

Nice... I'll be checking in to see what it is.

I have some Aero Force guages coming in next week. Once I get some baseline numbers from these I may start modding too.

Installed the gauges today. Now just need to figure out how to work them. So many things you can do with these.

I hadn't gone through the setup yet on either of them. The bottom one is just listing all the parameters to scroll through.

I have Boost and IAT on the bottom one now and using the top one to scroll through 8 other parameters. Will use these for shift lights too.

Here's a good video on this gauge. http://www.aeroforcetech.com/action.html
