Sounds great. I might do the same. For you I would simply advise driving with your current kit a little bit more, getting used to its power and delivery before moving up to the 550 and then 575. You just got your kit installed and barely acquainted with it. Besides the weather is still not warm. Drive it a bit in warm weather, then hot- enjoy it and spend more time with it, then go for it. There really isn't any hurry to upgrade that much- let ESS work out some of the testing and expecting kinks in the first production run. These kits are a blast and will last for awhile.

Might have a chance at what? pumped? I don't understand. When will people understand that car horsepower has nothing to do with ability at the track. A good driver in an 168hp E30 will drive circles around a 333hp M3 with a noob behind the wheel. Bring what you have and don't worry about your HP figures.

i loved to come at exotic car lapping days at cayuga to piss of owners of ferraris and lambos and other expensive high horsepower cars. on straight line they were way then me but i killed them in the corners so they have to let me pass them. once i was out of track they were coming to me and asking what i have under the hood and they were very disappointed when they just see cold intake. they faces were making big smile on my face hehe

Very rarely, 1/4 mile kills your rear end, it cost me around 3G to fix my subframe after drag racing but I still do this some times hehe. My best time last year was 13.57 on stock 19 with shitty tires(triangle, sold them this winter ). Laping more fun. Usually I go to Cayuga on Wednesday and Friday evenings 70+tax and on Friday after lapsing done 8-9 u pay 20$ for 1/4 mile till 12 and they opened bar there last year
