I'm upgrading injectors soon... so I'm sure I'll eventually be doing rails and FPR as well. Sigh. It's only money, right.

Just need COBB to release more info on the flex fuel option so I can get my bearings on what to start collecting.

These cars and the stumble are so finicky.

I was looking into the Delicious kit, but when I heard Cobb would do it... I was also interested. I figured it give me a good reason to save money ... it worked... sorta.

A work in progress. A Tomei fuel pressure regulator and fuel pressure gauge install. Hopefully it does away with the stumble.

I did the test drive with just the Tomei fpr and 06 STI return line damper. The stumble was still there and it set off the CEL, but it didn't stay on. It did however, smooth out the stumbles a bit. I decided to go ahead and install the Radium Engineering fuel pulse damper with the boost/vacuum port. It removed most of the stumbles, but it's very faint. I think another driver will not notice it. Now it just needs fine tuning. It does run a little rich below 4krpm and idle.

Very nice Beatrush undertray!!! I wonder if it'll work with KillerB headers? Do you think that the undertray is functional?

I would say for the initial drive on the freeway, my temps are about 176 when normally around 195 at 65 degrees ambient. A little too cool but it would be great at the track based on this.
