Well I scheduled my ride for yet another tune this Thursday at ARFabrication.com. All is in working order, so with the STI gods willing all should be good.

I'll be doing a C16, and Meth maps.

Anyone up for a trip and a day of tuning, hit me up. Its always a good time with Howard and Crew :devil:

if i could take the day off i would... good luck man... and I'm guessing on both c16 and meth (can you do that?) a solid 430-460WHP and +30 on the tq numbers :)

(c16 freaking rocks!)

Take the day off, I could use the moral support.

I hoping to break the 400whp mark, its been my goal and expectation with this turb, but with all my SH*ty luck who knows....

Either way it will be a fun day! Hope to see you guys up there. Is 1000am to early for beer :D

Tune

Actually it was Howard that blew his engine :D He was sporting his new WRX with a strapped on GT40R. We were taking a break for lunch and "cruising" down the hw and blammo. I got spray'd by coolant from his ride. Howard took it with stride, he seems to have a hard ** for blowing up engines. Actually he thinks it was ONLY blew a gasket.


Anyway........

1st tune/base
Meth
C-16



I think thats nuff said :banana:

Big thanks to Howard and Crew @ http://ARFabrication.com, and Doug from http://www.topspeedsales.com/(g0dmju454i2lzj45jhmb5145)/default.aspx They worked all day on perfecting my ride. Howard had Doug on the phone, working on the numbers. Great day, freak'n great!

I still think you get off on blowing up engines. Your lucky you didn't launch that cap through your hood. Tho, that would have been pretty cool.

How about a nice Monday night outting, stretch that weekend out a little furhter?


Whats an External WG? :rolleyes: ...............50more whp/tq

dammit!

I cant seem to get motivated to goto the stripper pole club!

As far as me gettin off on blowin up engines....you are correct but Im in the mood for a rod or two to come out...not just coolant...thats not a blown motor....It only took me 4 Honda engines to get 1300CHP correct...now they go all season without the need for a bearing change...lol Im waiting for the big motor...show everyone that 1000whpSuby is a no brainer...and not just a Unicorn thats always talked about but never seen...lol

Howard

EDIT: Its not AR Fabrication nor RaceSleeve Engineerings' nature to feel free to blow up engines...BUT for RD the limits MUST be pushed and we will build our own engines to be pushed very hard to better our customers products!
