Interesting. Excited for the results

slightly bad new: i had an appointment today with Eurocharged to get flashed with a before and after dyno. their dyno was down for calibration, however, so i couldn't do the before and after pulls. jerry was a very nice and knowledgable guy though, and he offered to have me come back once the dyno was up again, and have the car flashed back to the stock map, then dyno'd, then re-flashed to the eurocharge tune and re-dyno'd. i'm going to try this over the next week or two, pending their dyno is operational.

the tune feels great though. a lot more low and mid-range torque. the 4k rpm dip is better, but not completely gone. the car also pulls pretty hard above 6k rpms. overall, i'm very satisfied with the results. i'll try and get before/after dyno's completed soon. then, i'll move onto the headers install and custom dyno tune.

still no dyno test/tune; eurocharged dyno was down for calibration. i got a reflash to a file for catless headers, recetly, at eurocharged. car feels much more powerful in the mid and upper rpm's. the stage 1 flash wasn't designed with catless headers in mind, so the power difference with headers alone felt negligable. after the re-flash, the car feels much more robust, eager to rev, and pulls hard throughout the rpm band. will try to get dyno testing done soon. jerry@eurocharged said he could flash back to stock, then do a few pulls, then the file that's on the car, with a few pulls, finally a custom flash dyno-tuned to my car/mods. will keep you guys updated, once that occurs.

I assume still no dyno tune?
I work on MPG and spend on MPH

Threads like this suck without dynos to show what was actually made in hp and tq. The butt dyno is not good enough.

If the ZHP muffler has the actuator on it, it's NOT a straight through muffler.

Really wish OP wouldn't have ran away before posting dyno results.
