Sure, that was a general comment about carrying a little extra weight, not necessarily just about extra fuel weight. I just didn't find the ad nauseam discussion about fuel weight very productive. We...

With IS20, DP, and good fuel, I would say "yes" for maps 3 and 5. Without these things, then "no". In the extreme heat, an IC as well would be recommended. Obviously, you'd want to monitor closely...

Are numbers for IS12 or IS20 per you first post? I was pushing about +5.6 PSI on IS12 and JB1 on 93 octane. On JB1, pushing the boost further than +5.3 only has diminishing returns. Only mixing a...

I would just pickup a cheap Android tablet that works with an OTG cable, if you don't have a phone you can use. I also picked up a cheap Windows tablet (link below) for hooking up VCDS, and the JB4...

Yeah, unfortunately I've caused this myself on an older car I was trying to fix up. I've also seen this a few times when I worked at a garage. Lucky,...

That's really odd, keep us posted on how things go from here. I suppose I would keep driving it around close to home and see what it does. Are you scanning for codes with VCDS, JB4 or something else?...

Yes, a downpipe is really the only exhaust mod that will yield a decent power increase on this car, but you will need a JB4 or a tune to really take advantage of it. Just the cat-back exhaust won't...

LOL, I was browsing and saw my car. No worries! These are 17's and are 18.6 lbs. The 18's will be 20.0 lbs per Tire Rack. My stock Durbans were 25 lbs each, so it was a pretty good improvement for...

Yeah, it's crap! I never saw my suction pump recall in there either. Always shows nothing. I also wish they would list the recalls that have already been done.

Yeah, I just didn't want to recommend settings that George wouldn't recommend. I think Diggs' advice to lower boost was spot on in this case. I've been running an 18 PSI tune for Winter with a less...
