I was running the red 550's and was pretty much maxing them out. My goal for when I have my new Mani with EWG is to run 30 psi and see where that lands me.

ID like to get to the dyno before my new turbo stuff comes to see what the intake Mani did. Then dyno with new exhaust Mani and more boost. Then dyno again if I get that head from John.

Then I'll get ms3 and see what that does.

You'd better get a 6speed or start stockpiling 5 speeds.

Boo for shitty 5 speeds. That's why I'm planning on running only 15psi for awhile and see how it treats me

The collector is not 100% perfect, I need more practice making them for sure. Getting the hang of it though. Would have gotten more done but I had to take the cat to the vet this morning :(:(

How bad would it suck to get an abcess right above your eye?
