If pop charger made no noise difference then you either haven't redlined it or your car is too loud to begin with .

I just want to be able to lane over with confidence and not get rear ended on the interstate.

@Vadim - You said bumping the timing didn't help you any? I'll try it any and hope for the best.

P.S. Why is G20.net so slow over there? Not much help at times for trouble shooting.

Seat of the pants bumping up timing did nothing. JP on here made a good amount of power (up to 10whp I think).

Now one thing I did notice about the SSAC header, it seemed to steal low end tq. When I swapped the stock restrictive cat header the TQ in the SOP felt better. I plan on doing a side by side runs with virtual dyno and comparing them.

^That's scary to think if I bought a header and went through all the trouble, it would possibly make it worse O_o.

Well keep in mind SSAC header, or any power mods add power usually redline (7500). When your redline is only 6700 your not even revving high enough... This is why I want to do side by side virtual dyno's of my RR P11 as I change out header, intake etc.

P11s are made to be slow so you can look at em when they drive by lookin all pretty.

^ there is (after all) a reason we opted for a p10 as a race car instead of a p11

- I knew coming in the P11 auto was slow. @SE-Rican told me it was, but when I floor this thing, I expect it to get out of it's on way. Like I mentioned earlier, I thought it was a safety hazrrad on the interstate. I bet Usain Bolt would get to 60 mph before this car would.

I was thinking of doing auto on a ve lol.

Sad thing is, my 02 auto p11, vs my 99 auto se-l, my sel kicks the p11's ass, way more power, me and wife even went at it and i kicked her ass LOL.

My auto P11 is pretty slow but it's reliable as fuck and keeps me out of trouble. I turn the system up and cruise. Just make it look pretty and drive it.

- I think you guys are missing the point of my inital post. I bought this car to take out of town and to use as a travel vehicle. It's suppose to be a touring model, so I would think down low it would have some power to get it moving and long gears to breeze on the interestate, guess that is not the case.

I'm not interested in doing all the JDM mods and turning this into another money pit. I would just like some 04-06 spec-v wheels, window tint, and amber turn signals at best. I'm just interested in making the peformance little better.

^I was hoping to be able to have a setup like this for trips I plan on taking in the future, but not sure how the car would respond to it. Not much to go off of on G20.net, or I just haven't searched good enough yet. So with a setup like this and let's say 3 people in the car, how would it handle? #shrug. Maybe this is the wrong vehicle? I'm just asking.

APX Auto Parts SENSEN® 1481 Shocks, Struts, Full Set (4 Pieces)

(Read the 10 reasons to buy)

^Picked this kit up as it has good reviews to refresh the suspension setup. I know the price seems a bit low, but reviews are great and people give them more praise than GR2's. Found this roaming on Gnet. Maybe this car isn't what I thought it would be, but I do enjoy the comfort.
