That's what chris from cobb tuning plano said. i was surprised too because cosworth does alot of stuff for F1 and they know there stuff. so you made 410whp on 22 psi?
that's pretty damn good! i just ordered a omni 4 bar map sensor just incase i run more than 23 psi. i watched your build videos for about an hour. you're dad is awesome!! have you got to drive the car yet?

I've actually ran my car a couple years without an AOS while running a FMIC, and it's actually fine! But it would be nice to have one to keep the intercooler and boost tubes clean.

Got a high pitch brake squeel from the front, pads still have a lot of life in them. Going to get new tires soon cause the crappy ones that came with the car arn't holding up to my driving :)
Possible suspension work in the near future. Need to get a cali tune soon

You go to a shady smog emission place and pay them $50 to pass your car
Or if your military like me, I am required to abide by washington laws and not Cali's stupid shit. So i'm a free man haha
Everything is going great on the car!! 10k on the build and sill strong :))))))
