I appreciated his honesty and perspective on the issues he faced with this setup.
He didn't paint a rosey picture and pointed out the risks and downfalls that go with an aftermarket FI setup. Nice to see an early adopter who isn't overcome with blind joy of his new found power.. I think I will give more time to the aftermarket to work things out before possibly taking the plunge for more HP.
Im one of the few who is relatively pleased with the stock performance of this car.. Good thing..

100% agree with you. I liked the review and appreciate the time and effort the guy put into it. It really helped me. I was considering some mods to get me another 30-50hp and torque, but I think it is worth waiting another 12-24 months to get more data and see how some of these builds hold up. Let others break their cars first
