Re: OBD2 Dinan Stage 4 | BBTB | CF Intake | 3.5" MAF | ECU

I should also note that this also includes the 4.0bar fuel pressure regulator after confirming the tune requires it.

No. This will pair very nicely with an M50 manifold.

Re: Need some help with my current track suspension setup.

Seems like you have a lot of camber for the shown strut position in the strut tower. I’m still voting shims, upper knuckle mount issue or just an unusual strut angle mounting design.

Re: Premature damage to O2 sensors and cat converters

What codes is it throwing?

Even with the aftercooler, power will vary with heat. An improper tune could lead to component failures.
