    Here are a couple pictures I snapped last night in my garage. Not the best, I was messing around with different lighting/angles etc

















    That's all for now, I'm hoping to get in to get tuned this week at some point and make some more power, hopefully it goes well.

    Well guys, I was able to get my car into the tuners and onto the dyno late last week. The car made 262awhp and 257awtq at 20psi on 91 octane. Tune was done with reliability in mind as I still daily drive it. I don't have a dyno sheet yet, I'm waiting for it to be emailed from my tuner. Overall, what a difference between being protuned and Cobb's OTS stage 3 map. The car pulls so hard and smooth, feels great!

    Here is a quick pull on the dyno, not the best video quality though...

    They are only temporary. I'm not overly concerned about blowing a wheel bearing.
