Thanks for the update, 222rod. Sounds like it was well worth the effort to add the tune after the pulley upgrade. Did they dyno the car, or did they at least measure AFRs?

Murat, are the gaiters real leather?

BTW, we have the same interior. Did the 200k get a 6 speed or did they stick with the 5 speed?
