Looks great! Not sure if I would work with power tools while wearing flip-flops though. (Clint) LOL

I'm glad you've converted her and I'm glad she likes it.
Let's hope she stays clean. :-)

Just ordered an additonal surge filter and air filter from Brute Speed. I like to have spares so there's no downtime when cleaning them. Tomorrow the blower oil gets changed and I get to take her for a nice drive.

My wife was complaining about the speedometer. Sure enough, the tune came with a stock gear setting. Just switched the tune to the 3.73's. :-) I didn't think of checking that in all the chaos last week.

Still doing some fine tuning on the installation today. I fixed the gear ratio setting and reloaded the tune, then I changed the oil in the blower motor. It was pretty easy to do. I could reach down underneath with a 5/8 socket and loosen the drain plug. ProCharger recommends changing the oil within the first 500 miles, then every 6,000 miles after that.

It's a very different car to drive now so I'm still getting used to what it wants. I may have to adjust the shift points on the tune as it doesn't always shift as expected. But the best way to drive it for now is manual shifting. Highway driving is pretty much the same as it was before the blower.

Glad it's working out for you. Can't wait to hear and see it in person.

She's throwing a code ocassionally. It's a P061B which is something with torque measurements. I can't wait to get up to ProDyno on Saturday to see if they can get this thing smoothed out. We shall see.

I called ProCharger and all they said was it could be a multitude of things. That really helped. :-) They asked me to get the strategy code from my car so they can create a new tune, but I may not need it after Saturday.

Thanks for checking in.

It was a great day today. I paid a visit to Pro Dyno and Dan did a teriffic job dialing the car in. It really runs nice now. I can mash the gas with confidence. What a great feeling.

Here's a video of the first dyno pull and some pics and THE NUMBERS! 285 rwhp. I know that's not much, but it makes a huge difference to me. Car drives fantastic now.

Just putting some finishing touches on the install. I moved the catch can over to the drivers side since the PCV is capped on the passenger side.

Here you can see the caps in the PCV and the intake manifold.

The pcv being capped is part of the procharger install?
