The motor is not a Type R... it's a GSR, fully built with pistons, rods, crank, cams, headwork, fuel system etc... just tuning @8psi it produced 298wHP and the motor is capable of running 23psi... you make the HP call Julien. Now that it's broken in, we'll be tuning it at higher boost once the road conditions allow a trip to the dyno.

yea, see, I was close.. not 600 whp that Jon posted. I thought he detonated the GSR, so he's using an R now. That's what he told me.

So, if your computer crashes, can you still get into the fridge? What exactly can you control with the PC? Cool.

Yes I can still access the fridge........ . It's mostly the lighting, heat/ A/C, window blinds and cameras thats controlled by the computer.
And yes it has crashed a few times but now I have a separate computer dedicated to running the house. Once I can get the whole house wired for voice activation, it will be completely self reliant...................
