I'm satisfied with the power. I'm just hanging out for Cobb support for now. I prefer the ease of flashing and the PTF tunes that are available for it.

Thanks Harl

Agree with Angus, as if quote the whole post! lol

Great work so far. I like that you've gone with proper additions instead of the cheapest equivalent mod possible. Subbed.

Must have been made really well :P You should post up pics of your car, I've barely seen any apart from that one off full alcantara interior pic you sent me!

Thanks. Your Haroops look pretty boss under the TE-37's. How'd you fit a 381mm rotor under an 18" wheel?

It's mostly just a matter of putting quality / fitment above chasing the magic (often theoretical) performance numbers. That and working hard to feed the obsession.

Thanks buddy glad you like it. I'm doing things opposite to most (handling before power). I'm sure once the real tunes come around for it, the chassis will be up to the challenge.

Thanks Zombie. My favorite bit that draws the eye on the road is the diff cover. Glad I went the clear anodized over the black.
Here's a slightly better pic:

Looking back on my build route, I wish I did the same. Our cars stock lack more in suspension and cooling than power.
