    Well, since breathing itself is illegal in California (let alone any performance modifications), 48- or 49-state legal is probably as good as it gets.

    It's not quite done yet I still have to get the tune sorted out.... I still need to get it on the dyno to get the AFR dialed in but I may wait until sometime in September since it's been so hot and humid here. Also, I'm trying to figure out a rough startup/idle issue and one of the ESS idler pulleys is squealing like a pig so I'm waiting for the replacement. I got to drive for the 100 mile break in but now it's just sitting waiting for the pulley. It's squealing bad enough that I'm afraid it might seize up...

    IDK, I've had a chance to open it up a couple of times. I definitely doesn't have the hit of the 135's turbos and her car still puts out over 100 more HP... It does have a lot more torque than stock and it comes on really early... Once I get the tune dialed in I'll definitely have to race her... just because

    Hey, currently doing my oil pan gasket as I type. Did you follow a DIY guide? If so could you forward the link to me please.
