AFM drone has been reduced considerably. Even picked up 2 miles per gallon on in town driving. I would recommend this set up to anyone with an A6. Before going out to the drags on Feb. 6th, I will load the stock files back in, make 2 passes and then load the stage 2 TCM files, make another pass and then load the ECM files and do another. Kirk at Vector is interested to see the back to back comparison. He says that customers are reporting a 2 tenths gain just from the stage 2 TCM files alone. Should be interesting. By the way, they offered to split the towing bill.
That is great news...All kidding aside, you may want to load the stock tune at home, just in case you can't start the car again.

I wish it was, but no not on that trip. I've only been to the Tucson area once so far with my car.

I do agree, the IOM is a popular color. I've seen a few around, but none of them seem to put any attention into detailing their cars. They look very bland with out a few good coats of polish. Heck I spent another 4 hours washing, waxing and detailing every aspect of my car again this last Sunday. (My wife is starting to think I have lost it. )

Hey to all! Yes I am still alive and breathing! I have been on the go non stop for the last couple of months. My family in Albuquerque, me here, and the job pulling me in many different directions. So sorry!

However as of right now, I will plan on being present on the 30th! Do any of the E/SE siders want to meet up and haul a** (I mean cruise) up to the meeting location? I would be cool with that. I am actually on schedule to be in town -- not the norm lately!

This may be one of my last get togethers as I am suppose to be getting reassigned to the Albuquerque area. Which is a good thing because my family is there and we are having a house built. Long over due to get back there but just waiting for the final approval any day now. Should be moved back there by the end of February at the latest.

Let me know what plans are in place for the 30th. Look forward to seeing you all again and meeting some new friends since last meeting! Have a great week!
