I am getting snow where I am, so no tuning. Before I have 3Gph on first stage and 5 on second stage, I found that with 2.4, I can easily go to 5gph for first stage and 10Gph on second stage. No chance to test until snow goes away.
Yessir, I'm currently spraying 500cc (7.92gph) through a single nozzle. So far, it's been great and no bog.... I think I can spray more with the next stage nozzle that came with the kit, but I think I have the right size with my setup at the moment. Just need to work the IGN and fuel adjustments with spray now.

Whoa, it's been quiet here. Leaving D.C. area and heading home to warmth lol. Just like luck I travel up here the day before the snow storm.

Gotta get the RSX some seat time this weekend

Hey everyone. I've been working long hours with my new job. Driving to my new work location, I've discovered that my current 06 Malibu work car is having a hard time being a road warrior on the interstate. Well my RSX-S project car has been with me since 02 and she has earn the right to be a garage queen. So I have decided to get a new work car that I can convert into a sleeper. Man I've been waiting so long for the new Civic R to hit the tarmac but overall from what I have seen it just doesn't fit my style. For me, the next best bang for my bucks is a 2017 VW GTI “Sport” model with a twin disc automatic tranny. Starting at a reasonable cost, plus another $5K of bolt-ons/tune from APR I can have a sleeper hatchback with 380 whp that can dine on smoked Focus RS and Mustangs. This coming week I plan to pickup my new black GTI and start my journey making my next sleeper. As for the RSX - putting the wheels back on her and exercising her for the first time this year by driving my son back down state to college.

DSG is soooooo nice. I had an A3 a few years back and loved every minute of it.

what could be some of the reasons I'm not hitting as much boost as a should on my supercharger. when i got tuned i only hit 8psi but my pulley is for 9psi. could a restrictive exhaust or intake be the cause?

Restrictive exhaust would increase pressure reading. If you're sure there are no leaks, I wouldn't worry too much about a 1 psi difference. The pulley size vs boost is just a general guide. Each set up will read slightly different.

And it finally clicks!!! I've been racking my brain on this damn IGN and how to tune it with W/M. This just cleared up what I was missing:

Finally updated my showoff... it shows what I've been up to lately. Tuning wise, I'm still working through it, but preliminary results show that I'm ~301whp/231wtq at 9psi.
