I take it you used a Flashpro to increase redline? What did you bump it up to if you don't mind me asking?

Poor Z . You should do like that guy did a while back and make an aluminum body porsche on a bicycle frame. Looks like a car, works like a pedal bike.

Glad to see this thread taking off! Will be a nice way to keep up with the new things people are doing

I installed my T1R side mirrors as well as the Spoon wide rear view. I then contemplated whether the red Honda emblems would make my Blue CRZ look too much like Superman... Then thoughts of license plate frames made me feel confused..

I upped it 300 points, so it hits the limiter at 6800 and recovers at 6500. (vs hitting the limit at 6500 and bouncing back to 6300)

The power just keeps climbing. It was a good feeling the one time I hit the new limit. I knew my car should have run out of power, but I kept going faster .
(I will NOT be hitting the limit often. It's just more like an older car now. It's up to ME to watch for that red line on the tach, and not push it to much after that)

I think leaning out the full throttle fuel helped a lot, too. I'm just street tuning, but it honestly feels like it's got a lot more pickup.
Oh, I also changed the way it determines when it switches to the full throttle map. It was doing it based on throttle position (80%). Now it's doing it based on engine load. So, even if I'm not mashed to the floor, it will still switch to the full throttle maps when I'm just trying to very quickly accelerate.
Fun stuff!!

Wound up taking her all the way up to New Britain CT today for work, averaged around 70-75 the entire way there and still got 39.8 mpg, then got a phone call as I was coming home that the Typhoon had arrived, today was a good day indeed

Sounds like I need to get a FP soon and before I do any performance mods :homy:

Well I can honestly say installing a subwoofer in the Z has been a royal pain in the butt... After 6 hours and 5 trips to auto zone and one to walmart I have finally gotten my JL 8" installed behind the driver seat and the amp installed under the driver seat. Need to pick up two 25 amp ATC fuses and it should be ready to rock and roll!

Pics:





After getting a pack of fuses. She rocks loud and clear. Still need to dial in the gain a little more, but really gave the sound system that low end it was missing. Now I need to replace the stock speakers with something a little heavier. The stock ones are a joke..
