I need to hurry up & get a Stage 1 on quick. Y'all are scaring the hell out of me w/ the AFR readings running so lean in stock trim. What a bunch of BS.

90k on an '08?! Where the hell you driving back & forth to? Mine only has 41k. You had over 300 awhp on your motor for most of those miles? Very impressive.

Preciate it. I'm not hard on the engine by any means, but step on it when I need to. I'm leaning toward getting a downpipe w/ cat & leaving the stock exhaust on w/ a Stage 1.
