I'm actually almost upset that my RB exhaust is not loud enough. It sounds almost exactly like my worn out stock muffler, maybe 5% louder, but same note. I can to my surprise feel quite an improvement in power. Pulls a bit harder all through the band.

I still need to figure out what is wrong with my car though. Ever since the rebuild, something is not quite right. When going WOT, especially from lower range, you can feel it sort of bog, like it's down 10hp, then at some random point while you accelerate it picks back up, though sometimes it stays down on power. No codes, nothing that I can imagine wrong in my head.

Thge problem is that you don't have a ******* turbo in the car yet. FAIL BITCH FAIL

Regarding your power **** out

a) look at plugs when it is driving like ****
b) fuel filter

Oh you guys!

Fuel filter is new-ish, as are the plugs. It was doing this when the filter and plugs were new too.

Meh, **** it. It'll be getting all of those things new when I get around to the rebuild anyway... WITHOUT A TURBO! I'm pretty sure with the MS I can pinpoint any issues I have, if any exist. It may indeed just be something in need of replacement, that I have neglected.

**** Hydra. Only other option I might consider would be Adaptronic, but thats just a consideration. I'd prefer MSPnP.

Get it running well stock BEFORE you add another variable.

Well my thought was that I would be able to actually monitor the inputs and be able to see if anything looked a bit off. Would allow me to narrow down the search. Right now with no codes, the only way I have to maybe fix it is to throw parts at it like I typically do.

With this rebuild, I will be getting all new sensors anyway, so if any sensors are bad, they will be replaced.
