Thanks for the tip, I still need to fix that leak however. Maybe I can post up a pic to show how close it is. Dang it. I used a hydraulic jack to lift the flange of the midpipe and that didn't even help. Maybe loosening the motor mount???
    If the clutch is pressed down, it doesn't matter what gear your in, you WONT see boost, unless you have an anti lag system (I don't think you do ).

    No boost from revving, unless you have launch control (ala utec) Then you can floor it, and it bounces off of a 4200rpm rev limiter and builds about 7-8 psi of boost.

    okay, well, the IC is on and my Scoobysport Stage 1+ install is complete. Yay! Fun times. So much smoother and more powerful from idle to 3500, you have so much more power that 4 grand isn't as big a transition as before. It sounds cool, very low like my friends V-8 camaro but not nearly as loud.

    Yeah, me too. I swore that Cobb Stage 2 would be the end of it, and now I'm desperately trying to scrounge up enough money for a VF34...

    Hey Keystah, did you get the single tip or twin tip, and how far does the tip(s) stick out compared to stock?

    Thx!

    Hey,
    I got the single tip, it looks like 3" or 3.5" ID. It does stick out farther then stock, by about an inch maybe. The thing I like about it, it's different. If you stand and look straight down at the bumper, you can't see the tip. And the more I listen to it, the better it sounds. At lower RPMS it's deep like a V-8, it really "comes alive" at about 4500 rpms wide open throttle. I also must say cruising on the highway it is noticeably louder than stock. I haven't had anyone say anything about it yet, but then again it's been on one day.
