I was able to find an S14 SR20 T28 locally for about $260 and will probably pick it up very soon. Is this considered the same size as a GT2560R?

If I aim for the same boost, will my fuel table need changes with a different sized turbo? Will more CFM require more fuel in the areas I've tuned while using the T25? Or will I just have to tune the upper RPM regions where the T28 will shine?

After a whole month wasted waiting for an oil restrictor, I finally got the car running. The shop sent me the wrong fitting, so I ran around all day getting -3AN parts. I'm glad to say that I do not see any more smoke spewing out the exhaust. I do still see a little bit of oil coming from the compressor outlet. Is some minor oil seepage normal?

seems like there were a lot of hassle messing with adaptronic to get the car running...I thought they advertise plug in an crank the key and go...will you still recommend adaptronic if do it all over again?

No ECU, not even a piggyback like XEDE, is going to be 100% plug and play.

The idle setup is a little annoying but everything else for the most part is straight forward.

I'd get it again, unless there was another cheaper option. And I didn't expect this to start up like Nintendo.

The maps are getting better. Travis sent me a good map and the car started first try and idled lean. I had to tweak a few areas, but the car ran on it. The more people get adaptronic, the better maps you can get

I was finally able to take it to the track this weekend and it held up pretty well. The coolant started overheating after about 8 laps, but a cool down lap got it back to normal. I used the heater in the later sessions and everything stayed fine. I'm going to do some upgrades to the cooling, heat shielding and ducting over the winter and just try to tidy everything up to make little improvements.

I was able to take down 07+ STI's, a 335i and a few other 'fast' cars in the straights. So far I'm very pleased. I entered a few turns in the wrong gear and always seemed to have enough power.

Anyone have good transient throttle settings? My biggest problem was trying to downshift from a gear at about 6k rpm and not having good enough throttle response to keep everything smooth.
