OMFG .... car feels 100x faster!
Boost is much quicker and much more linear and smooth to 10psi.
Car is loud as hell though :(

I ordered my HKS Carbon Ti canister for new exhaust.

glad to hear you got the hks. the carbon-ti sounds incredible. did the silencer really make that much of a noise difference? your car was incredibly quiet, just wonderign if you still got the sleeper sound going on

HAHAHAHAHAHA! Sleeper no more.. my car sounded like isman's car on the way to work! but was blazing fast.... and I do mean blazing fast.

I honestly think I picked up another 70-80rwhp cause just the response of the car and the super fast and linear movement of the boost gauge. It was very jumpy before like it would jump from 5psi to 7psi to 10psi.

Now when I give the car gas.... it just smoothly but quickly moves from -10PSI to 10PSI. Needless to say I was very happy!

I will adjust a few more things and the next free dyno event :) I'll dyno again.

Wow that's a real good amount of increase from just removing the silencer!
