i didnt get the cels till i put my header on. oh well. i ran that run with a heatsoaked intercooler, but it was 60* or so outside. i shouldve trapped higher, i think...so maybe if i didnt reset the password, it wouldve gone a lot better....Originally posted by SGOSWRX
I have yet to get a CEL. I'm a little suprised. I've been running catless for about 6 mouths without 1 CEL. That Godspeed downpipe is working good for me. I also think the warmer climate down here in South Florida helps. I don't have to worry about boost creep etc.
But your right. Clearing the ECU can really hurt performance.
What were the weather conditions?
The weather conditions are also big players. Most the guys that have run really fast times in their STi's ran in cool winter air. We don't get too much of that down here. We typically run slower times down here due to the heat and humidity. I would love for a chance to run my car on a dry cool day with temps in the 50s. My car would scream.
My 02 WRX (stage 4) ran a good .3-.4 sec faster in cool air (temps in the 60s) vs warmer temps (80s-90s).
