    Thanks man!

    I just got back from The Shop CT and Mikey did an awesome job on my "break-in" tune. The drivability is fantastic! Car seems to be extremely healthy also.

    I do have one concern. The car is smokey a little bit of very light blue smoke. Yes, oil. But the oil level is fine, the car seems totally healthy. I'm thinking maybe oil is gunked up in the catback from the last motor that spun a bearing. Any input?

    Just went outside during sunset to take a few pics. I'm no pro at using my DLSR, nor am I a great editor, so don't judge.

    Dave at Rallispec made a custom bracket to make it mount to the pitch stop. It came out really good and I'm super happy with the mounting because it's the highest possible spot.

    I love your attention to the small things, such as coating the cold side of the Turbo and painting the alternator cover. Well done sir.

    Thanks dude! So far the car made 400 on 17psi. We plan on going for 30-35psi on E85. As long as we have no limitations.

    Anyone have nay issues with the front O2 sensor going bad (low voltage)? I get a code about every 50 or so miles saying: P0137 O2 Sensor Circuit Low Voltage (Bank 1 Sensor 2). Ever since the code popped the car is running pretty ****ty and it almost feels like the old tune is back on the car. I understand a bad O2 sensor will make the car run a bit off but my whole fueling and what not seems totally different and off.

    Also, the blue smoke doesn't seem to be appearing anymore, so I'm guessing it was either gunked up oil from last motor in the mufflers, rings weren't fully set, or I'm just not seeing the smoke from where I'm sitting. From what I've read, PTE turbos have been known for the seals not working properly and letting oil pass into the exhaust side causing blue smoke. So I'll keep a good eye on it, worst case scenario, I'll contact ETS and PTE and go from there.
