Hey guys I noticed we've been quiet on here lately...Let's talk, let's re-introduce ourselves, let's show off our V's :)cool: ) VT's that is. Seriously we should talk daily, maaaaaaybe get some small meets going, etc.
I have only met a few of you in person and some on the highway (phantomknight)...So let's get to know each other, share our frustrations, thrills, mods, advice, whatever. Let's keep it clean so we don't get shut down and no drama!
Let's just have fun. Pic for attention:

I can't figure out why it posts like that - if you click the expand link it's the right way 'round. Frickin' head scratcher, that one.

845 FMIC.

So far:

Turbosocks front strut bar, Pierce torsion bar, Tuix/MOBIS struts/shocks, Eibach Pro springs, Turbosocks rigid collars, Cosmo STS, billet shift linkage bushings, 60mm TB (not installed yet), Tork stage 1 bench tune (dynoed at 226 WHP 267 ft lbs torque @ 2700 rpms), 845 FMIC, Synapse DV, CNT racing high flo catted DP & catback, FIAMM El Grande horns, HKS M45XL plugs.

Hoping to get to a Tork tuning event at some point so they can do a full on dyno tune. I'll probably replace the fuel line first though.

Very nice! You may be better off going to Eurocharged here in Houston. They do dyno tuning. Clearly Tork Tune days for this area aren't going to happen because we cannot get it together.

I'm not sold on them yet. Last I heard they didn't have the ability to tune with the 2015 maps that guard against LSPI.

Best suspension I've ever had on a car. Rides very close to stock with Eibach pros, and I've been out to the Texas Twisted Sisters 3 times with this setup and ate those twisties up like nobody's business. Was keeping up with some seriously built Gen Coupes and an Ecoboost Mustang. Everyone was standing around my car looking by the end of each ride asking "WTF did you do to this thing???"

runs much better now!! a little noisy if you got the radio off, but worth it imo. so i guess no more installing aftermarket stuff?? fortunately, knock on wood, i'm done with
performance and about to work on this suspension.

Just be warned: when I experienced an LSPI event last March and basically destroyed my motor I found one of the HKS M40XLs to have the ceramic cracked and a small piece missing. I'm pretty certain it was caused by the LSPI event and not the other way 'round, but just FYI.
