Well, I got my 98 octane tune file back off BPR today :)

Haven't had a chance to fully test (as the car is un-registered atm :( )

Took for a quick spin around the block, there's a little cultisack (however its spelt) at the end of my street, so I thought "I'm gonna see what it's like without traction control -plants foot as grin pops onto face-" Yeah, swung around in full 360 and kept shredding for a good 50mtr before I decided the neighbors might get annoyed from all the smoke. She really got the kick in the nuts she needed to move now. No more stall when i tap the accelerator when idling either, which is a bonus :)

I'm detecting a massive amount of sarcasm from that comment. Or maybe I'm paranoid?

Yeah, I already gathered that aye. I guess he doesn't like shredding tyres as much as I do.

This goes all the way to 11 on the awesome scale. Do you have a newsletter I can subscribe to for more advice on how to be cool. I wish I was as cool as you are.

Sure, just simply stick a thumb up the ring and play with the old prostate a little. Then when you're as cool as myself, you can stop trolling for my attention.

I added it in cause I was bored, but hey, I'm not fussed.

I haven't gotten the LSD yet. Been busy all day with the body kit. The rear bumper is a f**k pain in the a**. Trying to get the support of the stock bumper so I don't have to drill new ones in.

yeah, just a basic 98octane tune. They gave me a 95 and an eco one also. Because it's the Sniper box, I had to upload my stock from the ECU and send it to them. They remove traction control, speed limiter, tighten up the gear changes (it rocks :D), different tyre ratio, speedo correction, lean/richen a/f. It's basically like the SCT x3, except cheaper and just not as many options in the long run. And it takes a little longer to tune as you need to send them your stock file, while X3 is receive in mail, plug it in, tune.

Yeah, they've got the tuning software lol no point me forking out an extra grand so I can laptop tune at home as I have no dyno. When the day comes that I want to get it tuned properly though, I'll need to find a place that has BPT tuning :( and they're rare in QLD.

Hey Dave, I think we have a candidate for a Tony award.

By the way Kraze, how goes the Cruize. Thought you were getting rid of the Bruno.
