Default Drove the car with the new motor

Ok so I drove the car to scott's yesterday to "supervise" the suspension install :P We found out that my high res flash was all fucked up. Reflashed it with std msnse and burned DIY's msq. Now it runs ridiculously well. Obviously the ve table could use tweaking to extract maximum power, but it drives excellently as is.

When driving I noticed that its a dog from 1-2.5k (isn't stock too?!!?). From 2.5-4 its about like stock. Then from 4k to redline it just keeps on pulling and pushing you back in your seat. The power it super smooth, and I can't wait to put it on a dyno to see what it makes na before I boost again. This is all with only a 8:1 cr.

Also, I brought a conclusion to any thoughts about my rings not sealing properly. When leting out the throttle at 6k I pulled 9kpa. Have datalogs to prove it. I will work on getting some sort of vid with sound to show you. In car vids will be useless though because it is so damn noisy with the mmr mounts. It also still has the stock exhaust so the sound is relatively muffled as well. It does sound a lot meaner though.

ya, I just had to turn the adjustable rod out toward the master more. It was already bled, just not enough rod.
