Pictures to be observed.
Photo's of beauty.
Stand by.

Fun.
While dealing with others, I had taken the snows to storage, in exchange for the originals.

Not planning on the Titan rims again until the pot holes are taken care of here..

It installed in about 15 minutes.
It seems to be limited by the amount of boost the ECU allows, 628 R ECU.

I am still experimenting.

Any performance boost? Does it increase overall boost or just when it kicks in?

The boost gauge was calibrating. This is not an accurate reading.

Boost is my drug of choice

Adding this to the log.
It was unfortunate.
On the way to Traverse City MI, I had had a failure with the Swedish Car Parts heater core.

The bottom tank had blown out after leaving the freeway to re fuel.
After the fact, I realize pressure may have built after shutting down. Especially if the fan may not be running for a couple minutes.

Long story short, the heater core blown out.
I have a string in the 850 forum.

Lucky to have some cool people with a car trailer, and a day off.

Two years ago when I had replaced any old cooling hose. Why not heater core.

I had put the original Behr back in for now.

Snows are back on. Just in time. The severe weather chill is headed this way this weekend.

Changed right rear caliper. The outer piston was seized since I had been since I bought the car actually. ( I know.) Yes I have waited way too long to take care of this. The line nut was rounded. I finally cut the line and flared it. New caliper, Drilled and slotted rotors on both rear, Akebono pads.
I have the same set up for the front to be done in the spring.

The original heater core is doing fine back in. I have not yet found my receipt for the other to send it back.

Still have last years Sows on. Michigan "Pothole" Summer was not conducive to my 16", or 17" Rims. No use changing back now.

Nice Drive to Mackinaw City to my Company operation next to the Mackinaw bridge last weekend. A drive to Kalamazoo MI in the morning yesterday, back to Detroit in the evening for another Production. I haven't done the mileage yet, but a long day / Week for the T5 Trooper.
It is the Daily Driver.
