So in other words you sacrificed performance for sound?

No i didnt it make no differance in performance and in 3 months the car stalled when i pulled up to a stop sign 2 times. so to have the car stall 8 times a year and it sound good then it was worth it. So please explain to me what performance loss im experancing? I would consider this reliablility mabey but not at a few times a year.

Do you have an A/F (wideband) in your car? Or any other monitoring systems in your car? There are many known issues besides the stalling issue with most VTA and even some 50/50 setups. Thats all Im saying. As long as you are happy with it thats all that matters.
