Absolutely. Maybe I should pre-pay to make sure I find the time.

I know Frank has recommended me coming in before to see if we can get to the bottom of the hesitations.

Mr. Wolfe
Lol-absotively a great idea!

Ya, it's a known issue, especially w/airbox cars...but a good bit of it can usually be tuned out.

Frank should come to west coast for a week! I’m sure he’d have enough cars to keep him busy here.

Greg come on by, would love to see that beauty in person and there is always the local guys like Stan to shoot the breeze with

Tom, it's been way too long! Coordinate something when you are ready so Dave and everyone is available.

Will do. Before winter (next 2-3 weeks) or early spring?

Congrats OP!
Love to have you in the TTFS family dude (maybe an honorary adoption?), but it looks like you're doing ok on your own.

No first hand experience with TTFS, but the car I recently bought seems to have spent some time there getting the airbox/flapper/etc installed and a custom tune... only put a few hundred miles on it, but the car drives like it came from the factory this way.
