So had a interesting day, went to a Euro car show with friend for fun. I run into a portable dyno and am like why not, they were doing 3 pulls for $70 and my car has never been on a rolling dyno. It has been on two dynojets a few times (which were consistent with each other). So the last time I was on a jet (hub mounted dyno) with all my current mods The car put down 420hp and 358 tq in a cool 55 degree enviorment on its best run without nitrous.

Today was in the high 80s and muggy but all the same, on the Dyno Dynamics portable my best pull was 370hp and 410tq at the rubber...

At the end of the day the car laps consistent times on a road course or a drag strip... Who really knows how much one or four hundred horses can pull anyway.... Its all about having a good time

Since Ohlins is taking forever to drop ISF coilovers, I ordered some BC Racing BR type coils to hold me over for the Ohlins release. They are 16k front and 12 rear, kept bcr springs as the goal will be to upgrade eventually. Small addition is also the SPC camber adj. ball joints to get it where I want it up front. getting them installed/ corner balanced & aligned in the next few weeks after the Mega MEET! im pumped hoping for a large difference.

Big thumbs up for Mike "Fig", top notch customer service threw the whole coilover process, I couldnt ask for more as a customer! Anyone would be a fool not to do business with this man. We really are lucky here on the in the Club with our great vendors and their top notch customer service. Thanks to all the vendors who have helped with my build, as their parts and providing services multiple times has helped me create this monster Lex;
JE Import performance. Fig's. Joe Z. Sikky manufacturing. Down Force USA. & Strasse Forged. playing a key roll.
