    Yup Adam with the world record Flex got that WaveTrac thing started. Last I head, @FiveLeeter918 picked up the baton on this.

    As for the RDU thing, Steve from AKD has that thing going. He's working with Colin and his Edge in this project, but I firmly believe he needs to test this out on a SHO platform. Called him to mention this and looks like he reached out on some FB groups. He's looking for input on PTU stuff (big ups to @Caden for sending his own PTU to him to get this ball rolling), so hit him up to see what you'd like to see on your dream sheet for a PTU. I mentioned, case brace (another thing @Caden stepped up with...reaching out to MountTune and passing the torch to @FiveLeeter918 ), better drain plug setup, dual top fittings (vent separate from fill), maybe even billetncase with larger fluid capacity and switch to a Timkin/Torrington idler gear bearing...

    Yes, a brace or girdle...girdle might be tough with the limited space available back there.

    I stared at mine in the garage, and actually thought about removing the front clip. Then I thought, nah.

    So I was going to have my shocks and struts redone today now for the 2 week got blown off. At another shop supposed to get everything done to the turbo tubes pods installed and the other thing and blow me off for 2 months getting f**king aggravated... since I got the car out of the shop January 1st I literally have not done anything to the motor and all the intake tubes components that supposed to be put on cuz everybody keeps blowing me off.. The exhaust shops around here are real leery about installing my downpipes. Welcome to f**king California I'm about to say goodbye to California. I will literally drive across the country to a shop that will work on my car at a reasonable price hit me up if you know a good mechanic..

    That's a shame. I really like how badass that makes the car look. But that's also the main reason I didn't get one. My SHO drags the lip every time I back out of my drive, no matter what angle I take. Also why I haven't lowered her yet. Hope you get it fixed.

    Decided to install my XDI-60 this weekend along with changing out plugs.

    When I pulled the XDI-35 I found the square ring between the plate and the valve cover adapter was fubared.

    Got it swapped our and my fuel trim issue seems to have greatly improved. 125 miles on the revision and so far it never goes over 12% where it was 22% at part throttle before. Also found that I'm holding 19.3 psi now where 17.6 psi was my max before. bonus!

    Still got a small discrepancy on my fuel trims, but I could pass that off to the e50 fuel inconsistencies.
