aaa

Hey I can't PM yet man. What AA kit do you have? 1 or 2? How do you like the kit?

I'm looking at a car with an AA kit and it makes about 500WHP on a mustang dyno, are you making around the same?

are you 6spd or DCT?

Thanks.

How does anybody manipulate the data? Data is data. The only way to manipulate it...is to modify it...and I've never seen that happen. Got any examples?

Why not post your runs on 6speed or PerfDB? Both of those databases are pretty big and I've never seen anybody accusing them of manipulating or omitting any results.

Here's the benefits for posting your vBox files:
1. People can see what the road conditions are (slope, elevation, etc.)
2. People can extract the date and time you ran, and then use weather data to extract density altitude.
3. People can see if you had excessive wheel spin which leads to slower times.
4. People can see if you started in the wrong gear, or shifted too early, and then make recommendations for improving.
5. People can make actual comparisons between your kit and others to make a more informed decision on what they want to purchase.

The way I look at it, giving people a total picture of your runs including weather conditions and wheel spin is very beneficial to the community. When people see these types of comments they are going to naturally assume the only reason you don't want to post your results are because you don't like what the data shows you don't want people discussing and analyzing it. I'm not saying that's what you're doing, I'm just saying that's what people will assume.

DCT stage 2 plus meth but meth was working for the most part of the summer due to a bad board. The ones i have posted online are around there but recently i am well over 500 due to changes in exhaust (going catless and changing to the AA rear muffler). If your in the Pa,Jersey of Ny let me know you can test drive it.

i wasn't talking about v-box files, just events from the past that i learned from and don't want to deal with bs. Its ok brother i don't really care what people think i know what my car does and that is all i need.

I have an AA s/c'r, but alas, no vBox to do runs. Perhaps I'll order myself one for Christmas this year.

There are people on the forum that manipulate data for their own cause.
Low sevens is impressive for a bolt on kit man. We do need some proof for that!

On a side note, I'm not sure what you mean by the manipulating data thing.. No one can manipulate that data, it's a Vbox that produces the data.

I for one am curious to know how it does just because Gpower/AA use air to air. ESS/Gintani/VF use air to water.

If you don't want to post your results, you don't have to but if your going to make a claim saying that it's running that fast, you need to back it up.

I'm all for enjoying your car and not caring what people think, trust me.. I'm on the same page.

I will never understand why certain kinds of people have to talk crap about other companies products, etc. I buy one kit, someone comments, it's sucks..blah, blah...I buy another kit, someone else says the same thing. I say to them - Go F yourself d-bags it's not your car!

Anyone with a SC kit on their M is gonna be fast [period]. AND...there is always gonna be someone faster...unless your the top dawg here...which I have yet to see who that is. All I know is it's not me. Would love to have SC on my M. All these companies are trying to do, mostly, besides make profit, is provide a good product for the consumers. So much hatred. Whether you have AA, ESS, Gintani, GPower, or some other kit, can't we all compare stats, vidz, technical knowledge, experiences, etc. without having it get into the common, my D is bigger than ur D b.s.

Bad enough people give us shit because of the car we drive...even worse when we hear it from our own fellow M drivers. Enough people. I swear, if I were a big ass MMA fighter, I would punch each of you in the face. Peace and love!

Hey Akh23456 I live in NJ - can we meet up and do a few pulls? I'm curious to see how much faster your car is than my bolt on E60 M5.

Thanks man!
