I'll know after next weekend. Going to try and put some paint on the caliper or something to see if there is new rubbing.

Have you played with the new boost control algorithm? It hits overboost when cold and doesn't always reach it when warm.

Is this in 1.4.0? I'm still running 1.3.4, boost control works great.

The EWG is enormously more forgiving, though.

The algorithm is completely different.

I'm also running over 3x my wastegate spring.

Hailey is awesome. And much better at cleaning wheels than I am. Now they are shiny and brake dustless.

Track day next weekend. Then auto-x on sunday. Then the car is done for the season.

The winter upgrade list is long and distinguished. Just like my johnson.

Since I bought that twin disc I'm taking a break from buying **** for the car. And taking a break from working on the car hardcore.

I (read we) need it lol. So now the thread will be even more rambling nonsense. While I put baller parts on a completely ball-less engine.

Deka EXTL14
Exhaust
Oil cooler in front of radiator
V1+phone mount
Crank case ventilation
Traction control
E85
Oil temp/pressure/egt etc warning through MS
15x9+225 RS3s
Rear sport rotor
Stainless rear lines
Splitter
Spoiler
turn signal headlight conversion
ABS Conversion
Brake ducts
NB2 non-sport or sport-abs booster + 929 master
Trailer+hitch
Fuel Pump
New FPR+Fuel Lines+flex
All hubs/bearings
Ball joints
Bushings.

Oh, but I'm picking up a trailer hitch at the track day next weekend.

Also got my air reel hooked up. This thing is ******* awesome. Now someone please buy me air tools



If anyone has a cheap red NB to sell me hailey wants it. But apparently I have to v8 swap it so she isn't embarrassed driving it.

So am I. WG spring is 8 psi, and it happily holds boost at 25.

1. Air tools: HF Earthquake impact is a great investment (the one with the red rubber cover).

2. Engagement: Date for at least 3 years. If she doesn't want you to spend much money on a ring, she's a keeper. Sensibility uber alles.

3. Thread will be more rambling: How is possible?

1. Cool I will go look for it at the sidewalk sale.

2. She is a jewelry "enthusiast" knows her stuff spends a lot of time reading/learning about it. She won't go for something "cheap" but she doesn't just want a big dollar ring. Has to be special and fancy. Not just a big stone. ***** super confusing. Also refuses to let me spend money on her, right now she is jobless and has kept track of every dollar I've spent on her to pay me back. I'm lucky

3. More is always possible.

I have had the same 600ftlb one for 6 years now. It is awesome, just don't tighten anything with it! I have snapped 1/2 high grade bolts just trying to snug them down on the lowest setting. My brother has one too. Of this thing can't get a bolt or nut loose, you need to break out a torch or grinder.

For the price, I'm told the HF gun is a good value. It's heavier, noisier, and uses a lot more air than a good Ingersoll Rand, but it's a hell of a lot cheaper.

Said I wouldnt spend more money on car ****.

Got tired of all the slash cut speculation I've been doing. So I maned up and bought one. I'll stick a map sensor on it and log next time I drop the downpipe.

Got the cheapest one I could find. Like 20 bucks or something.



All mild steel.
