Let me put it this way:
I plugged in my MSPNP and test drove it, made sure everything seemed ok. Then I drove over to Ben's place, about an hour and a half away, with my wastegate wired open. We installed injectors and started tweaking/tuning around 9:30pm. I drove home at about 3am, boosted, with no problems. We're both immensely better at tuning now.

Nobody. But we easily could have. It was quite dark.

And we saw 3. Remember, when were at that 4 way stop, they were in front and to the right.

I've hit a few, but oddly enough never near where I live, where it's kinda rural. I've hit them in very populated areas. I see deer all the time here, maybe they're those new, smart deer.

Yup. The thing I remember most about that drive though was the feeling of hitting the boost overrun on the first attempt at boost, and blowing the wastegate rod off the flapper. Definitely scared the **** out of me for a sec.

Good times

Dan, come, don't come, up to you. I can't with certainty tell you your car will be tuned better than it is now, because I don't know how it's running now. Odds are since you're still NA, unless you're way off, we won't be able to do too much w/o benefit of a dyno.

Probably not. Turnout will be so low, I'm embarrassed to have put forth the effort.

You're always welcome Rob, but as a smart man once said, I'd rather be racing

I'll see if I can stop by and say hello. I'll be going to the race - not competing or anything, just hanging out.
