    Nothing yet, track nearby is closed because the virus BS. I have some new components for the intake piping with a blow though MAF which should improve top end performance. I just love driving the car, still scares the hell out of me. I now have 89k on the car, with just about 30 k on the engine and trans. Still gets 270 miles on a tank of gas even when I drive it hard.

    One thing we did find after the last video, was an overactive knock sensor. It would retard the timing down to 5 or 6 degrees over 5500 RPM. I was just about to replaced it but I saw where the turbo wastegate hit the frame. I believe the knock sensor picked up a grounded exhaust. As a test I moved it a bit farther away and picked up some lost performance. I don't normally run the engine over 5500 RPM so never really noticed it. When I did a LiveLink I saw the huge drop in timing ( from 16 down to 5 ) within about 50 RPM. It stays at 15 to 18 now and I have another 700 RPM available where the engine is still pulling like a freight train.. I still won't run the engine over 5500 until I get to the track, just too difficult to drive at wide open throttle.

    Looks awesome! Good to see this cars still being kept alive and well. I'm currently starting my build and can't wait to be driving it.

    Yes, easily, if traction was possible. I may try in the next few months but I have a real race car that is my source of income, and it is more important.

    ​I have a race car, so I don't pick on anyone. I will have fun with a few of the BMWs or Lexus people who are in a hurry to get around me but usually I stay under the radar. There is no doubt that with traction it could be a low 12 second ride but I really don't want to make major changes just for that. I have this to scare me at the drag strip...

    .... at the risk of teaching you to suck eggs

    I thought since putting a front splitter on will increase fuel consumption, it could be offset a little by reducing the drag of the rear bumper.

    I was watching a rundown of the 2017 WRC aero packages, the rear end is unrecognizable from just a few years ago.
    Expect to see a ridiculously OTT specimen like this in a showroom near you soon lol

    I really like the played down look of your car, I can understand your concern at detracting from that..... G.

    Thanks, you really need two hands on it when ever it goes into boost.

    Averages 27.5 on the highway and 21 city and highway. Not too concerned about fuel economy but it is pretty good as is. Not really considered a splitter, like how they look just not sure I want to change the look.
