Decided that the Emanage is gay and I hated it. Sold it for 300 bucks. Bought chipped p28 with basemap for 175 bucks. PROFIT. :bigok:


Installed a dumb lip.


Painted the muffler black.


Apr 09
Decided that I wanted more boost. Bought Motorola 2.5bar MAP, used RC 370CC injectors, resistor box, and a basemap chip for the injectors and MAP.



Installed a big ass front mount, painted black of course.

Z6 timing belt snaps. Put a new belt on, motor has HARDCORE blowby issue. Blows oil out through VC breather and seizes. Swapped in a ZC nonvtec.


Installed a BEE-R 2step.


Dyno time again! Can't have a ZC on a Z6 tune, that's asking for trouble! This time made 211whp/208ft-lbs on the same dyno.


Cleaned the hell out of my interior after another gross winter.



And that's how she sits as of late. I'm taking it to the track, weather permitting, on Friday. Hoping to trap 105-110 mph.

Yeah still lurking TurboD16 but it's just not active enough and I need to feed the D addiction.

1.6 nonvtec. It's the same as an A6.

If you look at the first graph it spikes to 12 then tapers off to like 8 psi and it made sweet dick all for power up there. I fixed the spike issue and for the new motor it goes to 13.5 then tapers to 11.5-12 psi towards redline.

Boost and EGT are up on the driver's A pillar.
