    Update on my 550i

    Well after speaking with Andrew@AR today it appears my car is finally done. They have had some pretty challenging issues come up but we hung in there and I'm sure the final results will be well worth it. I should have some pictures and video tomorrow or asap. I also had them install my eisenmann exhaust and a wideband O2 and EGT sensors on there with the OT-2 wifi transmitter. The idea is to be able to use a jailbroken iPad with the dvdinmotion feature to display a customized display with all the gauges I need on the 10.2" nav screen as I drive a la GTR. This will hopefully make the next step easier. The car will now go from AR Designs to get tuned and hopefully get a meth kit installed(hint hint) then I have the next stop planned out as an intercooler upgrade unless the next big upgrade I'm working on(currently in negotiations) pans out then that would change everything! I'll update more as I can.

    Well they installed the wideband O2 and egt sensors and wired the OT-2(which is the hard part).

    Downpipes sound good, I think its time to change Eisenmann exhaust, its holding it back from its true v8TT growl. love the turbo spool from the exhaust tho.

    Actually thats about as much growl as I want to take. Its still gonna be my daily and one of the main concerns is that I didn't want an unbearably loud exhaust. I'm thrilled with how it sounds right now. I even had thought about getting rid of the secondary cats but this is just right for me.

    The launch vid is much better on the exhaust note with actual load on the engine. It does sound nice under WOT, I take my other post back. It is very nice actually. I just hate the farts during shifts lol, my friends DSG GTI does the same thing haha.
