next areas to be improved: - Work on getting a proper tune for the larger injectors, and a working 2 step so I can leave well into boost instead of dropping it, bogging then whooshing off.. Also going to check all vac lines for boost leaks. Goal is to eek an 11.99 out of the stock longblock and stock T3 turbo.
