Congrats man!

I'm too scared of the already questionable bearings to do it. My used oil analyses have not been great.

Congrats on the new found love, I've got the ESS vt1 535 and i can't wait to move up to vt2 myself soon.

V8+ Aftermarket exhausts+ Supercharger make this car a keeper no doubt for me, I always find excuses to drive the car more now even thou it's not my daily driver.

Nice. I've heard the VT2 kit puts out slightly more power than the vt1. Might as well go straight to the 3?? Have you just gotten used to the power now and want more?

Me too with finding excuses to drive it more! My truck is sitting at home getting lonely. Poor thing, he better get used to it!

Congrats on the blower. Sounds like you are having a blast with it.

You should be able to fix your traction issues with some practice and modified settings. Don't drive with the Power button on - even in M mode as the throttle is just too sensitive. I fiddled with EDC as well and now I can't get the car to break loose in any gear except first, and I'm making 570 RWHP with stock suspension and tires.

Oh i see. The coils likely stiffen it up a lot. I'm not sure about the settings for a non EDC car...I guess you could do some experimenting to see what works...but most definitely keep the power button off. Good luck.

Nice write up. You're on the mark about everything - especially about the increase in torque and the changes to the exhaust note w/Akra. I wasn't prepared for the latter myself.

I'm almost due for another change (6K miles) so hopefully it will be better.
