I agree. Although I didn't have much "business" with him in the past, John seems like a nice and friendly guy to chat with about cars.

I have some stuff I need to go have him install soon.

Seriously, Brian, your paycheck has been going directly to John lately.

How's the tuning btw? I guess you miss my comment on .NET about your custom wideband job. Looks great.

Hey Lucian, let me know when and what you're getting installed by John. I'll try to stop by.

Sorry, I missed your comment about my custom wideband mounting. I always forget what your screenname on .NET is, but I just figured it out again.

I still haven't gotten the car tuned, but it's running pretty well actually. I just drive it normally and everything seems fine more or less. I had posted somewhere that I couldn't connect with my SplitSec AIC1 (additional injector controller) via my laptop, so I'm getting the full E-Manage package now (adding injector and pressure sensor harnesses).

I was going to have John install the injector harness, but I will probably take on the task myself. It turns out that it's just running some wires and tapping into the ECU. I'm just confused about how to connect to the 7th injector, but I'll leave that alone for now. I can always hook that up later. The pressure sensor and harness should've be too difficult to install either. We'll see once it arrives.

John and Sandy are awesome. He builds some pretty nice stuff over there. Always see him working on big projects. Real nice people.

I can't wait to swing by Exact again (I'd work from there if I could! Just cool to hang out and see all the great work he's got going on). Just waiting for the guy I bought my S-AFC 2 from to ship it. Apparently he's out on a camping trip until this weekend

Let me know when your appointment is, and maybe I can swing by to meet you.

Will do...as soon as my little magic box arrives I'll be giving Sandy a call.

You've got a PLP Supercharger, right? I can't wait to check it out. Last time I saw one up close was at Mike's shop opening.

Yup, I have the PLP Vortech kit. John at Exact has gotten it running very well, and after my visit last weekend, no more CEL!!!

www.exactmotorsports.com

They are good with tranny flushes. It is a complete flush not a partial, so it costs more cause using that much oil is expensive.

I'll bet you will be surprised at the improvement though. E-shift runs like silk afterwards.

Gotta make an appointment. They are really busy on weekends. And that's just the work being done on b_chau's FI car !
