Well got the email I was waiting for today so as soon as I got back to work I loaded the program in my car.<p>The loading process went smooth, took about 10 minutes or so.<p>Soon as I took it out first thing I noticed is how much harder it pulls from ~2500k and up. Didn't initially wind the engine up too high due to being in the city and all, but immediate feeling is WOW!<p>So I get on I-5 NB from 196th in Lynnwood, traffic is going about 25 so the only place I can stand on it is the long onramp. Sooo.....I open it up, 1st, 2nd and get a little into 3rd. Holy crap, totally different attitude. I did manage to glance at the boost gauge to see it holding steady at 20psi.<p>Reminder of the drive home stop and go so no place to play.<p>Later in the evening I get on highway 9 NB from Marysville and get a nice long stretch to try it out. Friend is with me and watching the boost gauge for me.<p>This time during my quick wot pull boost peaks ~22ish, and quickly settles to 20. Car pulls hard from 2500 all the way to redline. No falling off of power at 5k, just nice smooth power all the way to redline.<p>One thing to watch for with this tune is if you're not paying attention you will find your revlimiter! Never even came close to it on stock tune with stock exhaust as the car would lose power in higher rpm's so it was a waste to wind it any farther.<p>All in all it has to be the best bang for the $$ you can do to your R. Tune is pricey, but then again, they are priced competitively for R tunes.<p>If you were on the fence about IPD, i'd suggest to go for it. You won't regret it. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

I hate you. <p>You know why I hate you? Because you're going to make me spend money on the R when I should be either spending it on the Z or saving it. Poo to you.<p>j/k about the hating...thanks for the great review!
