on another note, got some new to me goodyear eagle F1's on the car, 235/40R17's. found out they were made in 05 and never put on a car. so their a little slick until I break em in. car handles like a dream now though...
ive never liked those F1s, they always felt inferior to the pilot sports and potenzas for the same loot.

The top one is the Defi Controller Unit II. And the bottom two are a boost and oil temp guage. Im getting an exhaust temp gauge to go along soon.

Got it from a guy on here for a really good price.

By monitoring EGT, the driver can get an idea of the cars air-fuel ratio. At a balanced air-fuel ratio, the exhaust gas temperature is lower than in a lean or rich air-fuel ratio. High temperatures (typically above 1600 degrees F) can be an indicator of dangerous conditions that can lead to catastrophic engine failure.

for the price I couldnt argue... and I've never been a fan of ps2's anyways, the goodyears kill them in the sizes I got for this thing. response is amazing now that they are broken in.

200 for 4 never mounted tires, plus shipping.

on a turbo car knowing your EGT's are key...

Going to try to get into Bert's tomorrow morning for an alignment. Plan on getting there when they open, anyone know if they are usually all pre-booked or is it first come first served? I may just hit up racewerks alternatively depending on availability, I need to get it done though.
