Yay! The weather is getting better already! Seriously though it sucks that it has to go back in! Is there a problem?

Not really a problem, it's just running a little too rich for me, Mike even said it probably would... on the dyno it's fine, but it needs a street tune.

I'm sure you know this, but street tunes are different, the car is never under load on the dyno, they can simulate weight for dyno numbers and close A/F but that's about it. Street tunes are more precise but also more time consuming. Not to mention they have to do 2-3rd gear pulls to redline (maybe even 4th, not sure). I know 3rd gear in my car is over 117-120. And not to mention smashing it in 3rd gear as soon as it hits boost it gets swirly. So they will have fun doing that.

Just wash them with mild soap and water, then dry them before they spot!

I replaced the photos in my 2013MODS album. I used a tripod this time - much better.

Sahlen At The Glen

Well I bought tickets for my wife and I today along with a campsite for the Sahlen's Six Hours at The Glen. We will be camping in section B, site 92 which is at the start of the back stretch. Looks like we are doing it big this year! We can use the camper for a club field office (if needed). Maybe a cookout for the club would be a great idea as well!?

In any case Mark - mark Patty and I as having our tickets.

Mark is organizing this event again this year but I assume we will be in the same spot as last year.

Does anyone have the dmh cutouts on here. Mine haven't worked in a few months and recently began to rattle . I'm looking to buy the plates that come with the cutouts to cap them off. If you have them I would appreciate it if I could buy them of you. I don't want to sound like a rice rocket with all the rattling lol

I didn't know you had electronic cutouts. I always liked them, sorry I can't help you with that bud. But can the QTP ones work also or does it have to be DMH. I know there are a couple UpstateC5 guys that had QTP I think.

I'm not 100% to tell you the truth. I've seen pictures and they look very similar but I'm not sure if the mounting holes are in identical between the two brands.
