4614 miles-






Installed the new Cobb accessport tuner. For the first 50 miles, the throttle response was terribly sluggish. This was due to the ecu reflash. Took it easy for 50 miles until the ecu "learned" the new tune.

After 50 miles, there is a noticeable difference in sharp# with full boost. Throttle response is back.

Two things I notice on my setup:
-peak boost is over 18psi;

I'll need to download the LWG map and try to get the boost down some. Haven't noticed a ton of knock, but it's been mild weather. Hot, dry air could cause problems.

-no more mode selective throttle response;

I personally liked it. I'll have to download the software to make the necessary map changes to get this back. I have seen in the discussion forum that people have already done this.

(Note: will update once my new laptop screen arrives and I can use my laptop again....damn kids)

5093m-installed Cusco master cylinder brace.

very simple, straight forward install. just a little tight to get in the space with the tools. also, the instructions are all in Japanese. so if you cant use common mechnical sense, this mod my not be for you.

Drove it a short distance, felt a noticeable difference. should know more in the coming days.
