Immediatly, if that car sees boost and its not tuned to the engine will be short of fuel and you can say bye bye to your motor. I drove mine not tuned for about a month and I never, not once put it into boost.

I hate Mondays... and every weekday is a Monday except Friday, cause it's almost the weekend.

Is anyone going to Import vs Domestic World Cup Finals at MIR Nov. 6-7?

back today from the first 'long-ish' trip with the Fiesta. She did well I think; avg. 33.4 mpg on the first full tank of gas. I expect that number to increase as the engine gets broken in. The Fiesta is a little squirrelly at speed on the highway (~80) and can get tossed around pretty easy by wind gusts; but neither of those points are unexpected with a car with a smaller car like it is. Engine is able to maintain highway speeds with ease and is very smooth. Seats have good support for longer trips and everything in the cabin is placed very economically.

Still trying to figure out Sync lady though. She's great when she listens, but God forbid your music doesn't have all the meta data filled in correctly! lol.
