Long over due, but it finally happened! Got the car tuned on the dyno.

171HP 197 ft lbs of torque. Stock Engine, no intercooler yet.

The car is amazing!

Now to tend to the squatting stuff :)

I got together with a friend and local Calgary photographer the other night to do some shooting. Here's the Blog post and some photos from said blog!

Kinda nice seeing the car from someone elses perspective.

Are you running an o2 sensor all the time? Or did you disable the o2 ? I don't have one on my build, I'd like to but haven't figured it out yet. I think it would be cool for it to adjust to sea level or 8000 feet mountains.

I haven't got to the o2 sensor part yet either, but I spoke to the MS guys and they said that their controllers where designed to run a wideband o2 sensor. I thought I could run the stock and use the auto-tune function, but was told differently. So I ordered one off amazon... cheap that gives you all the fine tune capabilities.
