Default Put us in Guinness

I helped install Rappadan's Greddy kit last night along with That7Guy. Total install took 2hrs. We starts at 9 and finished at 11. That included installing a Tony's DP and tapping the pan, which is a tad extra work.

Where's our merit badges?!

I was thinking the title should read "Put Guinness in us."

It was a hell of an install. I guess Murphy was busy that day... I wonder if the oil feed ever went on without leaking? And Newbs i sence a little color prejudice going on. Are the blues not cool enough now?

Scott how did my car sound? Hear the bOV at all?

Dunno, it didn't come with the fitting, so maybe there was a problrem there from the start?

Throaty! A tad bit, but you were so far past me when you shifted it was hard for me to hear. (I was my Altima, it's slow )

When I installed my GReddy kit back in the day it took me about 10 hours. I was also 18 years old and didnt have a clue what I was doing...lol. But my kit came with a **** Starion Kit, AFPR, and Piergurgh so I had a little bit of extra work. Now I can uninstall and install my turbo/mani/dp in less than an hour

That is a really fast install. Instead of dyno results everyone should post their install time.
