took my car out today

Well i took my car more than just around the block today and lemme tell u this thing rocks... with all the new mods and such (stage 3 hardware.. stock software). It only hits around 11psi which i guess is an improvement over the stock 9 psi but it spools nice and quick i only went out for like a 1 mile run down the street but its great, i miss the car so damned much... i will let u guys know how everything else is asap...

all the new mods are listed on my webpage and in the interest of keeping this short i will not type them all here...

awesome, did you paint your 2.5" inlet pipe black or is it a different one than the silver in the other pics? you accomplished a lot in the past year and turned a stock car into a heavily modded street beast imagine what that thing will do with stage 3 software

Hmm interesting rico.... When i had my dp put on, i drove the car hard for a good 6 runs or so, and with my mbc tuned right under the fuel cut i still hit none... (fuelcuts that is) I wonder if i wasnt running the mbc if the ecu would have done the same on mine??

Edit: oh yeah not everyone knows my car is a t-5

Im waiting for someone to say its not possible. All I hear is hardware and software, Im glad to see someone trying it out w/out software and having positive results. Do you have a A/F gauge set up, if so how are the numbers?

ok so i went out again and got quitew a few 1st and second gear runs... the car hits 14psi i dont like this at all, seeing as i can not hit the gas in 3rd gear now, for fears of it going into limp home mode. i am ordering a new BCS just to see if that is blown. the wastegate works i tried it with compressed air and it worked fine at 5-10psi..... so thats ok

you shoudln't need to raise you base boost by adjusting the WG arm. try putting it back to stock. I had my base boost too high and the car actually felt like it adapted downward. put it back around stock and it pulls nicer.
