Oooh! Didn't know that!
Thanks! It does make sense to convert to a performance shifting. It's basically a proper shift light.

I'll check it out tonight when I commute back home.

So far so good. I really like the exhaust noise, it's not too loud and with that in place, the car actually sounds like somewhat of a sports car.

Of course I retained all the stock parts.
One thing I did notice is that the shifting indicator no longer shows up. Not that I mind but I'm just wondering what the reason for that to have disappeared is.

I'll setup a dyno run sometimes next week. I forgot about doing that before I got the pack installed but I'll just have to assume a stock baseline.

I'm running octane 91 only (from day 1) so that's taken care of. Sadly, California is an Octane 91 state, like Oregon and a handful of others :(

GronkDaSlayer I'm pretty close to Laguna.

Since it's just a track day, the car should be fine. I would feel a little better with a baffled oil pan or something similar and a fuel surge tank but I'm not going to push it too hard anyway. Especially since I've been driving RWD cars for the past few years.

I'll try to go to Sears Point later this year since it's my favorite track. I love Laguna but Sears is better in my opinion. Matter of taste I guess :)

okaythen just call your local dealers see if they can install it. and ask them if they had install it before you dont' want to be the 1st one.

yeah a bumper that you can't get it before the track day. so you are near Laguna? lucky you. Does our car need oil cooler or any mods to race at a track like that? or it's all set to go?

GronkDaSlayer Just received the HUGE box yesterday.

Then this morning I registered with Ford Racing so that they can send the calibration tool. Next week I'll go check if my local dealer can install that thing for me.

I'm going to have to be patient because I can't get the stuff installed until after my track day at Laguna Seca

Anyway, once everything is done I'll put an update in here.

Only have 91 around here. Matter of fact the choice is: 87, 89, 91.
There is one 79 station in SJ that provides 100 Octane but that's a little overkill and the kit isn't tuned for that.

No, that's the standard measurement for the USA. AKI= Anti Knock Index, which as stated on most if not every gasoline pump I've come across in this country is the average of the Research Octane Number (RON) and the Motor Octane number (MON), the two conflicting tests that result in wildly different octane ratings.

The RON octane number is used as the headline octane number in Europe. In testing the result is 8-10 points higher than the MON figure for the same fuel.

Therefore the AKI figure is 4-5 points lower than the RON numbers advertised in Europe.

AKI= (RON+MON)/2

GronkDaSlayer You would think that running 87 would make the system run rich but most likely pinging would occur. I'm not going to risk that and I'll keep putting 91 in that thing.
Should receive it tomorrow :)
