I always miss the good stuff

On a positive note, after 4 months of reinstalling my warranty Z54 and a bunch of other things (long story, not really lol) I will be getting it retuned for e30 tomorrow. Hopefully PWerks new dyno is installed so I can finally have some numbers after swapping turbos, and hopefully an SRT isn't blown up on it either like last time lol

Def post the numbers, curious myself. Anyone do anything special for mothers day weekend? We went up to Gatlinburg with her mom and bf, had some good times. ran the tail of the dragon twice for the first time yesterday, damn good fun except for a moment when a 2500 was going 10mph would not pull off and let a line of us by

Same, way too much hype around it imo even though it was the most fun I've had in the car doing something like that. To me the easier sight see roads on the way there and back were more fun bc you could get some good speed between and around turns.

I need to do that, there are a number of little highways that go up good canyons here that are fun. The Peak to Peak cruise is a pretty good one, but there are a lot of slow movers so it can be a pain

Love the Gatlinburg area, just not all the tourists.
Also curious on z54 numbers but more curious on how long it stays together. Would expect slightly slower boost than its cousin the 6758.

It boosts pretty damn quick, I was suprised. Still have to boost ramp it (not my car local I'm tuning)

Same here, first one only made it 10k/8mo, which was almost all steady state cruising(doesn't bode well toward longevity). Hope this one last longer

I hope they fixed the issue. Lots of people were excited for that turbo.
