That's cause I didn't. I sold it for a miata lolol
I had it for over 2 years, had my fun with it, moved on.

The vette was more just something to try out. I never planned to buy a corvette, it sorta fell into my lap.

I would love a stock location EFR set-up in my FXT but it's such a slippery, slippery slope.

Anyone know if WA or OR have E85 stations? I race down there and would be nice if they did. We have none up in the north (Canada EH!) on the west coast...

Tuned this little guy today


Not my favorite choice in rim color LOL but its just plasti-dip and he's replacing the wheels anyways.

Stopped at 19psi


Going to try 21-22psi next week.

The AF curve is actually almost as smooth on that car too. Basically an inverted boost curve haha

Its pretty straightforward:
top feed conversion and ID1K's running e85 (only because because side feed injectors are garbage)
forced performance hta68 7cm (small 16g with 18g wheels basically)
godspeed tmic
perrin inlet
gs 3port
cobb downpipe
greddy evo2 exhaust

I'm really not pushing timing or boost at all, and AF dips to mid 11's and holds 11.8 which is conservative. Its got a stock engine and stock clutch @ 80k miles so the guy is hesitant to push it much further.

We're going to try 21-22psi soon though and see what happens. I've a feeling it will spin the clutch once we touch 400tq

worked on this bad boy today



I don't know what's up with bright colored wheels but they seem to be all the rage these days.

I don't like it, but this thing putting down 350/400 made up for it

Thought you find it interesting: we are doing a build at the shop for a Subaru... it's top secret but an EFR 9180 is involved...

That's awesome. Yeah, EFR's are pretty popular in that crowd too

I can't believe my idiot buddy is scared to touch his '11 WRX (maybe it's a '12)...

I have Tactrix cable, he has money for DP...seems like the obvious thing to do would be to not leave it 100% stock.

you wanna tune it yourself? or buy a canned tune?
if you've never tuned a scoob before I probably wouldn't let you tune mine either lol

its quite a bit different from your Megasquirt or AEM or pretty much everything else.

But yeah I agree they stock tunes on them are garbage. stg1 flash is so easy and such a big improvement its crazy

I tuned my FXT a bit, just a quasi-Stage 0 though.

Actually I have more experience with tuning Subarus then I do with MS...I never got MS to work on my miata...

mah, anyway

We have access to a 4wd Dyna-pack at a shop that has a lot of experience tuning Subarus.

And I have you, for helping, so

There's nothing to be afraid of right?
