Castro + Benvo = Win!

Before the end of the year I was able to get my car down to Castro Motorsport for Chris to make me an X-pipe. This x-pipe has 2 resonators and holy hell is it LOUD! The bass associated with my car when I only had the axle-back has mostly gone away, in its place is much more volume of pure exhaust sound.

Hopefully Chris will post some pics of his beautiful work soon.
While the car was in socal I decided to jump on the Benvo-Wagon. Everyone seems to be very satisfied with his tune so I went for it. My baseline on a mustang dyno was 351WHP, after the tune and xpipe was installed they strapped it to the dyno (Before driving around and allowing the DME to adapt, the shop had limited time), and she put down 373WHP. All in all im really happy with the results. Mikes tune is smooth, and the car sounds wicked.

I was actually doing some vbox comparisons today with my E92 and my S54 E36 M3. While in the E92, getting on the fwy going from 2nd to 3rd I got preeeeettty squirly (cold tires prob), maybe it was Mikes Euro MDM but this 3800lb beast is moving!

30-50 1.9
50-70 2.5

S54E36: BEST
30-50 2.2
50-70 2.7

Hopefully in the near future i will have a better opportunity to do some more detailed standardized tests.

For now heres a dyno vid for your viewing pleasure. Cheers!

A little Xmas gift to me from the guys. (This video was with the axle back only) Castro Motorsport FTW!
