    The DECH got tuned yesterday and man did it perform well!
    From all the mods I did, headers, new cats, upper plem & different cold air, I gained 20horsepower & 17torque.
    Something to note aswell, yesterday's dyno session was 4celius hotter then when the car was previously tuned.
    Diogo and his team at DCT did a great job as always. Car sounds wicked out the back.
    Here are a bunch of photo's of the day.
    Hope to get out to the track where it can really stretch it's legs!
    **video coming sooooon**
    Official Numbers
    Old Tune: 263/303
    New Tune: 282/319

    DECH performed really well at the track on Monday. Had a rough morning on the street tires. The back end was trying to pass me entering the corners! lol.
    Had my first trip into the grass which was exciting... did the right thing and didn't try to save it and just drove off. Lost it going into Turn 2, way too deep on the brakes.
    Put my nankang's on around lunch time and really enjoyed myself in the afternoon. Man O man do those tires hang on!
    Excited to put on my G-lock pads for Thursday and see how it does.
    Trying to remember that I'm still fairly new to lapping my own car and that I need to walk before I run out there.
    Couple vids coming soon!

    Today we installed my race brakes.
    Glock R16 & R10 pads on fresh rotors
    Also had the chance to install the RedLine Tuning hood struts... #NoMoreRod
    Looks sooooo much better.
    And since I got rid of the prop rod, I installed this custom made radiator cover that is powder coated black
    Ties in with the Rad tank pretty nicely me thinks!
    Just about done under the hood, I think all I have left is the clutch quadrant and the jlt catch can
    Didn't have time to test fit my race seat... next time!
    The DECH is ready for round 2 at TMP tomorrow!

    The DECH was at the track day event on July 22nd 2021 @ TMP
    What a great day I had! I had so much fun throwing it around and stomping on the brakes. The car works better then I thought it ever would to be honest.
    After the first session I went up 4 clicks of front compression and found big gains. Much more balanced and lost a bit of the pitchiness it had. Compared to Monday, the track had loads of grip!
    I'm definitely improving each time I go out, trying to inch my way into each brake zone and pick up the throttle just a bit sooner out of each corner.
    Slow and steady wins the race
    Should of set up my phone to see what kind of lap times I was doing... but honestly... I don't really care... I had so much fun!
    It was a blast shooting the shit with people I haven't seen in a year or more.
    The plans for mods before the September day is to hopefully get the Pan Hard in the back and get my race seat mounted into the car.
    Also going to look into getting a thicker FR500 steering wheel (probably the SVE one from LMR) as my current one is super slippery and is so small. Feels like I'm holding a toy steering wheel sometimes LOL

    Shout out to everyone from TMC that came out and either helped with the event or just came and supported the event.
    Shout out to ZR for putting up with my nagginess on getting my car in the shop when I need something installed LOL

    Also... race brakes driving home... I sounded like a damn bus! LOL!
