I havenít done my write up yet, but I am very impressed with the LOD. I had to clearance the vent, not just the rain tray, but I got to paint the vent so no big deal. Iím kind of iffy on going through any automatic car washes anymore, touchless not touch, and Iíll get my intake powder coated at some point. Canít decide if I want to do it black or the color of my calipers lollipop lime....

there it is!!! Nice bro!! Yea I never did any of the touchless auto car washes, ever, do it myself. lol. How does she run now? Also on the powder coat color, I would do black, that's just my thoughts because you don't have any under hood lime color going on to go along with it being lime.. Awesome though, gotta love the LOD!!! Also I chatted with Raf yesterday and have decided to pull my LOD snout off and send it to him to open it up to 103mm so I can install a Nick Williams 103mm TB and do a re-tune and see where I am then. I don't have any machine shops around here, so off to LOD it goes.

Pulls nicely to 7500, and yeah Iím leaning towards black. Iíve got a 102 sitting on the shelf, canít decide if I want to give that to my dad and get a 103, or keep it and use it.

Yea it does look good in the natural color as clark says, and you might look at the car color too as it would match the under hood colors already there. Decisions decisions. lol.

Haha, I wish I could but I will tell you, when you get one you won't be disappointed. We really don't have any unsatisfied customers to speak of.

No, we currently aren't carrying any tb manufacturers. We'll make recommendations but thats the extent of it at the moment.

I gotta tell ya Raf is right, and clark too, they BOTH said that when I installed it and tuned it I would not be disappointed at all, and man were they right!! Thanks guys!! Like I posted earlier, I am swapping out my 92mm VMAX ported TB for the NW 103 and a ported snout by Raf, and we will see how that turns out. Should be awesome for sure!!

Hey that is a somewhat familiar sight! The natural color looks good!

Really looking forward to your results Wayne! I am going to have GPI put on the NW 102mm which would be a good opportunity for test data for rwhp, but I am also going to E85, which isn't going to net me much more rwhp but it will still not be truly unbiased.

Thanks Chris. Yea I picked up my TB today from FED-X as I had them hold it for me since I had to sign for it. They tried to deliver it yesterday while I was not home. I also can't wait to see what the difference is going to be between the V-MAX ported 92mm I have now versus the new 103mm and a bigger snout on the intake. I have been told 2 different scenerios on the swap, so we will just have to find out. Now I have to take the snout off and send it to LOD to have it bored out to 103 because I don't have a machine shop around here to do it, plus Raf said he would put a new gasket in it for me.
