Default Thanks, Active Autowerke for 520 RWHP and the brakes to stop it

Car just got delivered from Miami and all I can say is WOW.
Wicked fast, looks great and stops even better.
A few pics below and the SAE corr dyno (530 RWHP at 88F uncorr).
Thanks again to Jean, Karl and AA for exceeding all expectations.

WOW! Nice #'s! What supporting mods you got? Headers, exhaust, etc. I'm planning on upgrading to level 2 real soon (if I can ever get my 1.5 installed! Lolz) How often do you have to fill your meth tank? Sorry for all the questions...
Level 2 looks SWEET!!!

Same questions from me! LoL. I think I`ll still take some time and enjoy my 1.5 before I go for the 2.

I started with an older used rotrex AA system, then converted to meth, and then the whole new HKS system i have now. AA helped the whole way, even supporting the used kit, which is probably why the used kits hold their value so well.
Power supporting mods are AA headers, AA muffler, Okada coils, race fan clutch, low temp tstat, forged pistons, and probably some more i cant remember. Of course none of that is really required to get the power unless you just want to (except probably the headers need to be done.)
Other mods that help control/monitor the power are HPF clutch, a/f and boost gauges, stoptech BBK, dinan stage 2 suspension, UUC rear control arms, subframe reinforcement, and better bushings all around.
its my summer DD so i didnt go crazy on the suspension.
Meth tank ? completely depends on how heavy footed you are. around town, or highway driving it can last for weeks. i used to keep a spare gallon in the trunk, but never needed it around town - it lasts a while. continuous full throttle driving like if you were on the track, maybe an hour or two.

VERY nice! So with the forged pistons, did you do any other engine work, cams, lower compression? And what psi you running? Sorry again! Just want to do some similar work that you've done already! You can PM me if you want!
I just got my tax return but half goes to the kids college fund and the other half, level 2!
I plan on running JVT headers (debating to just upgrade to SS) and Magnaflow exhaust. Already on a full GC coil set up with Brembos to stop!
Post some videos... PLEASE!!!! Lolz

No engine mods other than the pistons, just stock stuff.
i havent looked at exactly what psi i get at the top yet, i assume about 13.
I made 437RWHP with the old kit and meth but no cooling fan for the intercooler.
