I like the Hankooks. To be fair, it's my first square setup, so it's hard to properly review them.

Not babied, but being able to rotate them definitely lengthens their life.

On another note, looks like dyno will be Tuesday night. Shop is closed for the holiday weekend. There's a chance they can squeeze me in tomorrow morning, but I'm not going to push it.

I've been looking forward to Saturday all week for you to post your dyno and now I have to wait longer!

Have a good long weekend

I know you sold the magnaflow, but did you ever concider using the magnaflow as a base and replacing the twin tubes with a 3 inch?

With Natalie being pregnant, I've done waaaaay too much of that lately. I've put on more baby weight than she has

Recently discovered Blue Bell Caramel Kettle Crunch. Although I'm a sucker for good old Cookies and Cream.

Well, that was kind of a bust. But, you win some, you lose some. Conditions were about 15 degrees cooler in the dyno room, but humidity was double. It was about 19% last time, showing 41% this time. I can't help but think that hurt me a bit.

No gain. In fact, numbers were slightly lower (1.5hp, 2tq). I hardly consider it a loss, as things can vary all the time. My last dyno was right after an oil change, blah blah blah. Also, 99% of the graph is the same.

I'm disappointed, but not distraught. For a 140k motor, it's still pulling strong and consistently. Going to Stett for the exhaust tomorrow. If I don't make any power there, I may start to frown a bit.



Comments welcome.

Edit: Hopefully the 3" exhaust will make some power

How old is your air filter? Mine is so clogged up I feel like the car runs sluggish, maybe that's why?

Air filter only has about 3500 on it. Also noteworthy, in all previous sessions I had a cooldown between pulls. We were shot on time. All runs were done back to back.
