Thats why  that test is such bullshit.  They change stuff like that and
dont say anyhting.  I thought they put the late model exhaust man on way
back in part one.  
The free parts they change they dont say, or they change 10 things at a
time and attribute the power addittion to one part.  I like how the owner
of the TA is opening his own business with the knowledge aquired from the
test.  he has what, one combination? wow, hes an expert too.
O yeah, and no body mentioned this, but I like how they did a 'intercooled
vs non-intercooled' test.  Yeah, lets see what happens when u run a speed
density variant compter that is expecting a airflow of one number and is
getting an airflow much less than that, when it already runs a extremely
fat fuel table. Hmmm, it runs rich with an intercooler, what do they think
it will be like without? Duh...
And does anyone know how they are ruinning those big injectors? Adjustable
FPR?  or they have a chip or what?
Seems like a stock EEC with only a FPR with 52's would be really really
fat down low.

real good anyhow.

This step[ by step stuff is PAINFUL too! Lemme give you an idea how open I
want to be here.  I had to rebuild the turbo.  I have 3 late model hi flow
exhaust manifolds.  I left the low flow one on there jus so I could see
the difference on a time slip.
