This is a discussion on My '13 Blurple Hatch within the Builds forums, part of the Tech & Modifying & General Repairs category; Nice audio setup. So, only took a couple months for the "more power" bug to set in? That didn't last ...

    got the v3 from a vendor on nasioc on the cheap..ish

    and thanks, still don't have the stupid sub in the car yet (box build issues). but the "more power" bug has definitely bit and bit hard. currently amassing a whole bunch of parts, so after i get and install everything it'll be EFI logics protune time. (hopefully we'll have e85 around here by then!) but the list is decently long so it'll be awhile before i do anything to the car.

    Parts I Have: (i'll throw up pics when i get a chance)
    Cobb AP v3
    Turbosmart BOV
    DW65c
    Grimmspeed 3-port EBSC
    Grimmspeed MBC
    Process West TMIC

    Parts I Need:
    Injector Dynamics 1000cc injectors
    KsTech 73mm intake
    Downpipe (need to really just make a decision on that)
    Equal Length Headers (again not decided on a brand)
    Up-pipe if it isn't part of the ELH^^
    Protune
    RCE Blacks
    Superpro sways (24/22) and kartboy endlinks

    could be some things i can't remember at the moment, but basically that's the plan

    hehe yeah, what happened to your "dont want to lose warranty"

    You got a thread to the nasioc vendor that gave that AP on the "cheaper" side? I thought you can only buy them at $650

    Did the new headunit improve the sound quality? I'm really interested in getting a new head unit but don't plan on doing anything to the stock speakers, I'm not much of an audiophile. I really want to get rid of my separate XM unit to help clean up all of the wires I have everywhere.

    crap, didn't notice someone else commented on this. yes the new HU vastly improved the sound quality. the stock HU underpowers the stock speakers. It's not guna make it sound AMAZING, but you should be pleasantly surprised. Tweeters are still flat, and there's no real bass. although the new HU did allow the stock speakers to "hit" a little harder. The subs installed with box, i'll throw up pics today

    remote gain knob location (probably changing it due to the bright as blue led it has on it, a pain at night)



    got the box and the subs in and wired. whole system sounds awesome

    Finally got tuned at EFI Logics.

    Final mods were PW TMIC, Grimmspeed Catted Limited Downpipe (or whatever they call it with all the bells and whistles), Turbosmart Kompact BPV, DW65c, ID1000's, AP v3, 93 octane tune.

    I told Mikey to go conservative with it, and this was the end result.



    call it 270 awhp and 310 awtq.

    the car drives so much better than stock/Cobb OTS. I really should have done this from the start.

    Finally got around to installing my AEM Wideband AFR Gauge along with my SMY Clustermaker Dual Gauge Pod with a Podi Factory color matched boost gauge (black bezel). Need to figure out a 3rd gauge for my empty slot though.

    AEM Wideband AFR in the SolidMods Vent Pod:


    Podi Boost Gauge (Daylight):


    looks almost white during the day, it makes it easier to read.

    Podi Boost Gauge (Lowlight):


    in low light it looks alot like oem, also depends on the brightness setting you choose. what i have is somewhere in the middle. also can choose between different gauge/needle color combos

    SMY Clustermaker Dual Gauge Pod (one empty slot):


    SMY Clustermaker Dual Gauge Pod (finish):


    its amazing how close to oem this thing looks.

    took some video of the install, might make a DIY for cable routing etc.

    ECS (East Coast Swappers) a tuning shop in Connecticut recently held a dyno day for the CTSubie community. I went and took some videos of the cars that showed up and went on the dyno.

    Their Audi RS7 Shop car put down 610 whp and 623 wtq, I love that thing.

    The link below is to a playlist of all the videos from that day.

    https://www.youtube.com/playlist?lis...3wzWJgWnQGLvsF

    Some of the cars dyno'd were a Nissan GTR, Subaru WRX's/STI's, Infiniti G37S, 1967 Corvette Stingray, Mazdaspeed3, Audi RS7, neon srt-4, 4th gen mustang gt with spray, 5th gen mustang gt with a gt500 blower, and even a Ford F-350 that put down 1300 wtq before it spun its wheels on the dyno rollers.
