Please, link me to any credible source stating the kilopascals is always referenced to absolute pressure, and boost is always measured in gauge pressure.

But will you see them using different units of pressure on the same data table for the same sensor reading, and will you see them posting that info on a car forum?

I'd love to see a vid of someone holding the vid camera and you rolling up to the camera from a distance. You need to show the beautiful exterior of the car as well.

Looks GREAT. Did you have to send your car to AZ to get the TC done. I'm VERY interested.

A friend of mine with a GT3 is trying to get me to run Laguna Seca on the 29th of this month; I just may take him up on the offer, schedule permitting

im considering getting 650/850 springs but...
im afraid i won't know how to handle the car at the ragged edge coming out of the turn so i was just asking how comfortable you've been pushing the car in the corners and if its surprised you at all.

i want to get on infineon once the suspension is dialed in...we should do a bay area track day now that your driving it!
