I'd love to test this all myself... and my car would have been the perfect way to exercise the upper limits of these modifications, but it's down and being parted out. I don't suspect I'll be returning to working on the 6G7x platform any time soon. It's such a money pit... The stuff is even more expensive and fickle than on a brand new Evo! Crazy... for something that isn't even AWD or inherently performant
This will be a perfect solution for a mildy-boosted setup, but it will take a lot of work to get it suitable for anything wild & crazy...
I will have to do some more reading on the load/boost limit stuff I guess. I understand what you are trying to explain, but I am eager to learn more about that as it is a very good "safety net" for high hp platforms using this.
I would have suggested you for testing, but well we both know how the Galant shit blew up in the last few months
The main reason I am trying to work on this as much as I can is because I am going to be tuning my setup via this flash...and it won't be "mild." This car stuff in general is a money pit...I can't play with the Lancer, or the new vehicle when we get one...so why not on the $500 Galant lol
