    That is the plan. It was on the list, just further down this winter. IIRC 1 coil is 3/4" drop. Still running the Eibachs up front.

    Purchased a flash tune from Stratified Friday @ 11am, had a tuning form email to me by 5pm. Filled it out form that night and returned.
    Had a tune to load by Monday. I wasnt expecting that quickly. Now I will calibrate the MAF and turn on the WMI.

    Edit Tuesday - Idle is good and smooth, low rpm/no boost driving is smooth and easy too. MAF Cal sent.

    Did the new front wheel bearings fix your sloppy steering feel and braking issue? My car has felt like this for a while now and couldn't figure out why.

    Yes. After the new bearings and an alignment, the car drives great.

    Great man good to know! I will definitely be replacing mine when I can then. My poor car isn't nearly as clean as yours so it is showing its age. I have replaced at least over half of the car by this point lol Weird thing with that is that everything feels tight and absolutely no wiggle anywhere so that must be harder to identify I guess

    Got my MAF Cal revision back today. Loaded that up, ready for tomorrows drive in. Not much to report. The car is driving nicely on just the base map. Havent pushed it into boost, now that its calibrated I will...just a bit. I still have a datalog refinement coming to fine tune everything. The Yokohamas are excellent. Drove home in moderate to heavy rain on the highway at 80mph, not even a quiver from the tires, lane changes, on ramps. So far they have great street manners.

    So far, the tune is good. I do find that when I depress the clutch on moderate acceleration at about 3-4000 RPM, the power unloads really harsh. I had selected my FFS at 3500, so i think that might be the reason for that issue. Dont know why I even bothered setting FFS, I dont use that feature. I will probably adjust after the process is complete. Nolan asked for a second Maf Cal, possibly just as a check or maybe there is still room for improvement. Got some logs for that today. I havent pushed the car very hard, but enough to make the wmi flow. Started getting an alarm condition that wouldnt reset after the 5 second setting. Found a leak in my tank at the level sensor. Silicone to the rescue. In order to drain the tank, I have a valve on the tank out, and I open the filter housing. Filled the tank and the needle wouldnt even budge without permanently alarming again. I bled the system both to verify flow and remove the air. Do I need to bleed a wmi system for it to operate? It seemed to work fine with the test button after I did. I will try it out on tomorrows drive. Got my Stratified keychain in the mail, now right where I wanted it.[​IMG][​IMG]
