    Tune was done in norcal at equilibrium tuning. The car drives great! I really recommend a custom tune. Car ran fine with ots cobb map but it so much more responsive and just feels better with a custom map. +1 to Ed and equilibrium tuning

    Love it! Looks just like mine. Although I thought te numbers would be a bit higher with your mod list. Does anyone here know if there is a major difference with the gains from a 91 to 93 octane? If so how much?

    it's a pretty good difference. Just reading the COBB accesstuner dynos, i can see stage 2's with 93/94 octane putting about 315 ish trq versus mine at 287, so about ~30. Yea we have really crappy gas in California. Also, the tuner was expecting around 255HP and was surprised that it made around 10HP more.

    1. Big brake upgrade (Brembo's or equivalent)
    2. Coilovers
    3. Track time.
