Uh NO, I walked the course 4 times and still didn't know where the hell to go. Of course, my short term memory is ... uh, what was I saying...

The greddy is one with dual vac ports. I'm not smart enough to explain it, but if I pull one of the vac sources off the BOV is pretty tame. Personally, I like it loud and nasty!

It was nice seeing you and your car out there!! Was your fastest lap time the one in the video? How did the wifey do??

edit: I just saw they posted the results. I also found out I should be in YOUR class (XP) because of the TSIs. :P

here is a pointer....I learned this from a guy named charlie(80+ year old autocrosser) take a note pad with ya...and in words(not a map) write out the course. Charlie walks the course once but during the drivers meeting and such he goes over it...he's damn good! and its helped me also....(my short term memory= the suck too)....

Really? TSIs? I had no idea. I moved to my class because I didn't meet the weight requirements of SM2. When I did, I had to add a rollbar (required for XP). I wasn't too happy about that at first but it makes for a good camera mount <G>. Anyway, come on over to XP! It is lonely over here...

Actually the top port is a boost/vac line, the bottom should be a boost-only source. Using the bottom line helps out the response on the Type S's immensely and makes the sound much more.....sudden I guess is the best way to describe it.
