No, I haven't. I used the space below the climate control. If I run out of room I may want to add some gauges up there.

Do you rub? In the front on heavy corners? Guess I need to start researching! another issue trhat is hurting traction is my rear camber. I'm considering these what you guys think? http://www.treehouseracing.com/compo...be33d0bb11.jpg

Nope, I've never rubbed. Maybe I'm a pansy driver, though.

255 on 18x9 square here as well. No rubbing although the sedan rear fenders needed to be rolled to avoid rubbing in the rear. The key up front is having the right wheel offset, a fair bit of camber, and not going too low (otherwise it can start to rub the outer edge of the fender liner at the top of the arch). How much rear camber are you running?

Not sure tbh, enough so the tires wear noticably more on the inside. I should have it aligned nest weekend.

I'd like to see how the Shark handles the nitrous (hopefully you can get a wideband on there).

Best of luck. Did you get my picture?

graphs coming very soon. along with video!!! The shark was better for the nitrous, afr's looked a lot safer. Spraying sooner made for a much smoother graph.

nitrous kicks in at about 24 seconds
