What ecu mate? And this car made 400whp limited only because of the stock MAF? :) So you have stock cams, valve springs, tranny too? Lastly, is the division plate on the "Twin Turbo" pipe really effective?

I must say you really unleashed the mutant T-Rex in that car w/ only stage 2 upgrades. Congrats!
