Plans

There are a few pending things that need to be done on my car.

- Need to check my diverter valve to see if I have the B or C valve. ~$60 if B
- I need to take off my blow off valve because it's getting old.
- I need to buy the micro-can vag-com. ~$250
- I need to check the nuts and bolts that I touched when I installed my springs.
- I probably need to buy some new shocks and struts soon. ~$550
- I need to replace my air filter or get an intake. $60 or $260

Installed H&R Sports

The new part # for H&R sports is 54752 and is the set without the rake. The springs were installed at 11,000 miles with stock shocks and struts. The drop looks perfect as its not too low to worry about on ramps and such.

Idling Differently

Noticed my car was kinda idling a little rougher ever since the dyno. It might have something to do with the fact that we were messing with the coilpacks.. hmmmm

Dyno Day

Got my car dyno'd by Jason from Autologic. I saw a turbocharged s2000, an NSX and a bunch of stoopified RSXs and civic hatches. All of them probably quicker than my car :P. Thanks to Alf for prepping the car for me. I had no idea what to do since this was my first dyno. Popping the engine cover was pretty hard and the coil packs were giving us trouble. Everyone was patient and persistent and we finally made the run after abot 20 minutes of messing with the engine. I made 217HP/240 ft/lbs torque at the wheels on the dynojet.

Got Revo Reflashed!

It took Wolf about 2 hours to reflash my stubborn car. The program kept crashing on us whenever we tried to flash the performance program into it. Thankfully, Wolf was very persistent. I'm planning on getting it dynoed in the next couple of weeks to see what kinda numbers I'm getting. I'm currently at 91 octane. I had about 8000 miles on the car.

My Fast has Arrived!

Finally got my Fast figurine today! Only took VW 3 months. For some odd reason, they sent it to my parent's address. I haven't lived there in 8 years. Strange..

He's looking good but man does he stink!

No go on the Revo

Well the only Revo dealer in town has gotten his cable stolen somehow. Hopefully he will have it back soon. Maybe this is a sign that I shouldn't be getting the reflash. At least not for now. Hmmm maybe a new suspension setup will be a better/safer upgrade.

I've been looking at the H&R springs/Koni Shocks combo or the H&R cupkits. It's gonna cost between $650-$700 for these kits.
