    Should be pretty straight forward. More people have the Lap 3 chip, which is usually mounted on top of the battery. Thought the BT1 was discontinued for a newer version?

    I've red great things about it. Similar to lap 3. Both great products. The guy that had it was boosting between 20-21 psi.

    Waiting to install my oil cc and hange my oil to 5w40. Gonna swap the plugs to the m45xl in the time being. Already started fuelling with 94 oct since the tune is set to 3.5 psi over stock. Next mod is intercooler. I already have downpipe but still on stock exhaust. 1 thing at a time.
    Another thing I gave to do is, install a boost gauge. While I'm at it, what other gauge should I get?

    So...I switched to 5w40, installed the HKS M45XL plugs and plugged in the tune. Seems to have more power for sure. Going to install the cc as soon as I figure out the bracket. Curious as to how much more power I'm making.

    So far the car idles nice and smooth,acceleration has improved quite a bit. However today for the first time, torque app registered 19 psi of boost!! Will that be considered over boosting since the app takes data directly from the ecu? Cant wait for the catback and possibly fmic or at the very least, Wagner ic.
