Who did the porting? Did they remove enough material? Did they shape it correctly?

After my porting the highest I ever hit was 1.13 after a very hard run. The other day though it was 17 degrees outside and it hit 1.23 bar. I wouldn't be too worried about it. It's running a little lean but so long as you aren't so lean you're knocking then you should be fine.


PS: Get a Utec. You're gonna love it! Just got mine tuned for crappy 91 but even still its a noticeable power increase. much more fun. Now I just need to find some 93 so I can run the TXS Stage 2 map without having to pull out 3.5 degrees of timing....adding .1 fuel...and lowering boost to 335 instead of 375.

Not sure how much power I'm losing with that map but I would guess 15 to 20 hp. :thumbdown
