Yes Auto talent and Sonic Ms have installed several kits for us. One of those is currently in the for sale section.

Nice delivery from FedEx today

Pics to follow....uploading on an iPhone is not fun. Install ready for Monday!

Thanks Rob & Andrew for the fast and well packaged shipment!

The local set of TE37SLs did not work out well but I ordered a Mag Blue set with Pilot Super Sports 285/35/18 & 265/35/18. Shipped today from Cali so FedEx is saying Saturday delivery . I'm also scheduled for a rear diff brace install this week and not auto related but getting LASIK done on Wednesday. Need to make sure my vision is crisp at high speeds lol! It will be a nice week to say the least!

Update!

PROGRESS

Just wanted to post an update as I want to share as much information as possible throughout the transformation.

INTRO

Got a nice call from MaximumPSI today that they managed to get everything up and running! I am waiting for a couple replacement parts but the car is up and running. I would like to give a HUGE THANK YOU to MaximumPSI in Linden. Mike and his team are the best I have encountered performance wise and I am very happy to have them working on my car. They solved potential issues with ease and pointed out and corrected mistakes made by the install shop that put on the HKS kit with the previous owner. Some of the things the old shop did are VERY questionable and I am happy I got the upgrade done now so Mike had a chance to look through the entire setup. I don't like bad mouthing places but just a picture of my old intercooler should say enough. I will try to snap a shot when I pick up my car.

THE GOOD STUFF

Mike called to tell me that my car is running GREAT and is quite a beast on the street. He managed to clear the adaptions and get the beast on the dyno! However, his dyno is indeed a heartbreaking one. Akash's Generation 1 AA kit put down 460whp on the dyno there and then put down 515-525whp on a DynoJet. Everyone who has had their car on the dyno there reports the same heart break. I will be getting my car on a DynoJet once I get it back as my 18" Volk TE37SL are on their way! I have a set of 19" OEM 220M wheels on at the moment. Additionally, my oxygen sensor isn't working properly and is being replaced by MaximumPSI tomorrow. I might be able to get the car on the same dyno after getting the sensor installed but it may not work out time wise. On to the graph!




**Mikes Notes: "Ignore the squiggles at the end, that is from the dyno run measuring after we hit the limiter."

I am very happy with the results thus far and this is a very good indicator that the advertised figures are attainable. My previous kit was just under 440whp on this dyno with my 20" ADV1 5.1 Wheels on. I will continue to keep everyone posted with honest information and my driving impressions when I pickup the car. I will see a nice change as I will get to drive the car as is, then with the 18" Volks on and next week with the rear diff brace. A lot of fun stuff this month. I am considering some suspension work but we'll see as this month has been an expensive one...

Quick Impressions:

Car drives AMAZING! I am about to step into LASIK and can't use computer or read until tomorrow but I will post more. 100% improvement over the old setup. The power is SO linear! I don't get that 4.5rpm bump! Will post more but AA and MPSI have not only met but exceeded my expectations!

I think a lot of you need to open your mind and really take a good look at all these kits. With Evolve making some amazing kits as well, there are really some good choices out there. I don't even want to say anything more lol.

Kudos to the Team at Maximum PSI for getting this transplant completed. Those are some solid numbers your ///M is pushing out. Hopefully we can see some videos of this beast on the road and in action really soon.
