hell yeah. I am really glad you seem to have nailed it.





I have been trying to figure out a work around for my mid pipe resonator. Ever since I got it ... I know its cutting into my starting line joy. It only really bothers me when I know I am lagging when it comes to the universal forum currency; ETs. But that's for another post. I am also really glad I was able to give you hopefully good advise on my experiences.



cheers!

Cheers, man. One note of caution: I know that you are very sound-conscious and that's why you put the resonator on...the downpipe changes the sound of the car quite a bit. It's definitely noisier. I like it quite a bit.

Now the question is...what's next? After several runs the other day my turbocharger was glowing red. Wondering if the next step is an intercooler. Not sure I want to go through all that work, though...

Cosmetically, I want to add a spoiler and some gold/bronze 19" wheels. Wider in back than current. And add some performance tires.

yeah. i really fussy about the sound.

OK so I was giving a lift to a co worker and punched it in 2nd, he turns and says is it a 350? meaning cubic inches. That was pretty gratifying. I saidm yeah, I'm doing about 350 at the crank (just grabbing at the number that that made sense), its a 2 lt turbo. He was pretty impressed.

I mean the rasp was jsut too much. The mid pipe cuts that out completely and the 99.8 percent of car use is perfect for me. I am twisting my barine around thinking of something clever and I am pretty sure its going to involve getting a tig welder. LLL.

That and the tires. I have been tourturing my self about that. Save money and upgade the 18's or go to apex 19s and pilot pro etc... The only draw back with staggered wheels is you cant rotate them. Be careful of tramlining with wider tires. That can get annoying over time. we get the cool months so I don't worry too much over the boost just yet. I sent info to the local chevy guys to look up the SG3 suspention upgrade but havent heard back.

You hit an important point there: the cool months. With all of the add-ons that I've put on this thing over the summer I cannot wait to get to October. Get me to those 55 degree days, 45 degree nights.

Not to get too much further off topic, but ZTS I'd consider an aftermarket oil cooler either before or with the intercooler. If you're glowing red I bet your oil temps are getting pretty high. I hit 259* pretty regularly during track sessions and I'll be adding one this off season. For us non-1LE 2.0 owners the stock oil cooler is a liquid-to-liquid unit tying our oil and coolant temps together. A thermostatic mishimoto unit will hopefully help keep those temps down and add longevity to the turbo life without affecting engine warm up times (especially important for us living in four season climates).

To bring it back around, here's a good look at RaceChip and the process they go through in creating the tunes: https://youtu.be/9lhH7ygoxrU

These were the next auto play vids in my queue. Is this bad?
