ECU has to be tuned by either your own personal tuner or go thru VF for $800

Ray and I have made our peace. I was judging him way too harshly and for no real reason other than my own paradigm. So, as a friend ray, you have a lot of years ahead of yourself that will obviously need to be fill with a new challenge, more speed, more bling, whatever. At your age, unless you are made of money, you will NEED the shingle as it is their world, nit yours unless there is something really special that explains the money that can last virtually forever. I am now a "do whatever you want man and F the rest of us! I just come from an age of experience and did not own three vettes at one time till I was about 45 and I paid cash because I had a great job and my Mother passed leaving me some money. That was gone in ten years to no car payments, cash for everything, but here I sit at age 58 with 35 years in metals and a 2007 MBA (obtained when I was 54!) and unemployment hit out of nowhere for BOTH the wife and I a month apart. Unless you plan on dying at 25 or your income will be infinite, you will someday likely lose the gravy train which you keep secret so well. Hell, like I told you, whether you got hit by a drunk as a kid and got a big settlement or your parents somehow can finance you for ever, no one on the boards can figure out how you can afford what you do. You should share it and be in keeping with not needing do defend sh*t about where you get your financing-maybe there is something we all have never thought of that we can use! Jealous...maybe, but I think it is because you are not afraid of anyone or what they think, but are obviously not willing to share how you can do it. Save some fun for your later years as you will still wanna play at 40 or 50, trust me on that. I was driving a 9.90 bracket car on the street to work every day. Because I wanted no roll bay, I got one run in at any track I went to and was politely asked after laying down a high nine or low 10 "to please leave and don't come back until I passed the inspection for a 9.90 class car! How are you planning for more of the same? Are your funds virtually endless? You home seems modest with the typical junk in the yard that drives neighbors crazy! You go man with my best for your enjoyment and SAFETY, but plan on how you can do this until you are old and your balls can be put in your socks. Your pal..
