Kenton, you want to know the worst thing about it is that I've owned a brand new GoPro for the past 12 mos and have yet to open up the packaging.
I will most certainly use the GoPro for future video!

Why do you state things in psi and kpa? They are both units of pressure...

Seriously, who uses kilopascals to measure boost pressure?

Thanks Jaime!
The TC is simply amazing, no joke Bro! It really allows one to drive their car to its fullest. And yes, the A/C was maintained with the new intake.

Any chance we can see the final dyno graph? Of course we want 0 smoothing, rpm x-axis, boost displayed, etc..

As Chris stated, the car delivered by HPF was sound and great to drive.

Dan Avon 7, this is not a pissing contest; all three companies make great products. I just decided to have the best of all; what do you drive?

ProEFI uses both measures; what's wrong with that? I find it very educational.

Never meant for it to be a pissing contest. Maybe I took your post the wrong way, but in regards to the following comment "The ProEFI traction control is absolutely in a league of itself and makes these crazy horsepower cars, drivable - without the sensation that you may loose control and end up in a wall.", I meant that it's nice to see you being able to enjoy a "properly" "setup" "car" ie a car that you are confident to drive hard

My fun cars are an e46 m3 (stock motor but everything else modified for a balanced track car) and a wrx (old video of it on the dyno and some local roads, )

Right on Dan; I really like your WRX, looks like a fun rally car!

The ProEFI TC is absolutely AMAZING, and makes these cars that much more fun to drive.
I CAN'T WAIT to race a GT-R naaaaaaaaaoooooooowwwwwww!

In this instance, kpa is much more informative since it is referenced as an absolute pressure. "boost" is pressure over atmosphere, and by nature varies with weather.

More "boost" trivia: most "psi" gauges only read psi in boost. When in (relative) vacuum they read in inhg

Did you just make that up?

When AirFrcd used multiple units, that's something that will lose you points on a physics exam and is confusing/misleading, but for most purposes, is completely correct since he stated units.

What you just said was stupidly wrong.

SPDu4ea has everything right...not sure what you're talking about...the only reason for loosing points would be for not indicating absolute or gauge pressure. (ie 300kpaa or 200kpag) Atmosphere does vary depending on climate and elevation...and you're pretty much hiding in a storm closet with your tinfoil hat on if you think PSI is the unit of pressure measurement most commonly used throughout the rest of the world...been reading gauges in KPA for over a decade and every physics, thermodynamics, etc... question I ever had (or still do) involves KPA and very rarely requires conversion to PSI... 1PSI=6.895KPA no big deal getting familiar with different units...most people in industry get familiar with more than one standard of measurement.

Lol what are you rambling about? 'stupidly wrong'? I'll stop there.

OP- amazing car. I'd love to see better footage of it and also some vbox runs and some runs against a GTR or two wouldn't hurt. I can't even imagine what 'kill mode' sounds and feels like behind the wheel of your car.
