Power: 300/300 at the wheels

This post needs photos (but no longer needs a dyno plot).

I love your car. I think I see you every once in awhile around GMU. Really makes me want an 08 FXT... Helps WRB grow on me too ;)

2006 WRX Gone! Looking for new home for my 6 speed in an FXT shaped box!

Thanks! :lol: Yeah, I go through phases w/ the WRB. I was really gung ho to get that color (last foz was JBP so I wanted something different this time) but then sometimes I think it is too flashy (and think about maybe I should have gotten a black one again)...but then I look at it in the right light and just love the color. I am all over the place. All-in-all, I love my new foz :mrgreen:

Do you have the logs from your run? You're getting very close to the 12:1 mark at the higher RPMs...

Good choice putting $4,000 rims on your 1990 Honda Civic. That's like Betty White going out and getting her tits done.

That does seem a bit lean, but my bet is your only around 12 psi of boost, so it may not be such a big deal.
Besides, taking it passed 6k isn't gaining you anything power wise so you might as well shift early.

No, I don't have the logs. Jorge tuned it. And like Darrin said, shifting at 6k is best.
