How do you like it? Been remote tuning the stock 413 DME, just picked up an ostrich 2.0 myself, still need to buy tunerpro RT

tires are 225/45/15.

I can almost guarantee they will rub if i'm running it on the street. Should be fine on the track, but its gonna be raised a bit till I do some flares or something sketchy.

What turbo are you running on it? I remember you selling a 6265 exhaust housing awhile back. Is it a precision? I also spy an oil scavenge pump in the battery tray?

Ya I am running a 6265. I was going to go to a T3 but then stayed with the T4 which is why I have that other housing kickin around.

Haha its not a scavenge pump, thats the filter block.

Yeah Joe... post some pics of your build! haha

I will. I'm just waiting on parts. The car is a bit of a mess. I need to move some gauges, put some trim back together and clean the engine bay up.
