    Sean, who's tuning your car?

    Edit - Nvm, saw in the first post it was Joe.

    Just have to wire in the new map sensor and she’ll be ready for test drive #2

    Been driving the car... holy smokes. I have not given it full throttle or anything close to redline but it’s FAST. Almost unmanageable fast. You better be pointed straight if you really get into it because I felt wheel spin in 3rd at 50% throttle. In a blink I was over 100mph.

    Some things still need some some fine tuning.... slight bog when starting off slowly in 1st and some loud backfires when abruptly lifting throttle. Have the exhaust vibrating against something occasionally too.

    I can only imagine what a beast this will b when the tuning is complete and boost goes from 10-11 to 18-20psi.

    The only Fab9 turbo NC I've ever had a ride in sounded like a gunshot when it backfired. It was pretty funny at first, but then got annoying.

    You should be able to reliably run 14 PSI on the stock 2.5 without any worry of blowing up the engine. I wouldn't go past 16 PSI.
