I wouldn't bother with the e-Bay coilovers, and for the love of God don't cut your springs. There are aftermarket springs available to lower your car slightly and improve handling performance. For your case I would suggest Eibach Pro-kit springs. However the stock struts won't last very long with th...

You can tune the car with the SAFC, and it may be safe enough to run, but it won't be optimal. If you got that much hp tuning with SAFC alone, I'm sure you could get even more (and more stable) with the proper tuning method. If it's working for you, do it! But all we're saying is that it isn't the m...

Replace the cat with a new one. High-flow cats are decently priced if you are worried about exhaust restriction.

Exactly...full throttle = xxxx rpm. So at that rpm you are pulling x amount of fuel. Has nothing to do with boost levels at all, and that's a pretty poor way to properly tune a boosted car.

Running rich enough not to blow the engine doesn't mean it's done right.

SAFC tunes fuel by rpms, not by boost. You want to be able to control fuel as it pertains to boost levels.

Ouch is right. For some reason he felt the need to get rid of the stock latch and use those pins, didn't work out well. The car isn't modified or anything either except for a B18B1 engine swap, so it's not like excessive power had anything to do with it.
