BOB, congrats on the additional ponies!

Are we ever satisfied with boost? I guess only for a short period of time, then we want more

More hp for you then as you closer to sea level

I ordered wider wheels from IND to stop the ass spinning;

Brushed P40s 11J rears +25 with 305 PS2's

Lets see if this makes a difference, I think it will look better though

It's looks like ESS is comming out with their own line of xpipes ( catless) once they release it I'm jumping on one and might change out the eisenman with somthing else too.

I'm guessing you only need the DCT software if your tracking it hard , you should be fine
The scary part with the VT600 is when banging 4th 5th & 6th shit gets hairy in those gears.......
M33, did you find a large increase in noise when you added the Xpipe to your Sport?

I added the AA xpipe and it was way too loud. I was to be honest disappointed with the big jump in noise level. Not sure if the Eis sport should be used with an xpipe ever.

Sorry on the OT

Yeah, it feels like an extra 20hp here at sea level. I can't wait to get it dyno'd to see where it is at here.

As for your wider wheels/tires, good luck. I don't think you can get them wide enough to hold, you may need a different compound of tire. Once you are rolling though, 50-70mph, they should hold great for you!

I had gotten the AA xpipe and hated it , shit built and way to loud !
The dinan one was much quieter due to the 4 resonators and larger piping and gave me more power too ( can't be that ) . But my sport sounds like the race.. Not bad at all , if you want I can take a video of it for you
I'm selling my setup I want to do the full akro setup ...

Full akro with the HFC will not make as much power as the full Dinan exhaust step I don't believe........ but the reduction in weight should make up for the difference. Maybe it will be a wash when you translate it to street power. Just food for thought.

He's right bro! Catless will make more hp. Akra is best quality and sounds best though.

LOL so when is the stroker upgrade coming?

PS2 305 won't cut it, you need Sport Cups at the least to manage.
