Awesome Walt / Mark. Well done well said. Nothing like crisp cool fall intake fodder. Add a tint of moisture (cold fog=vehicular bonghits) and Bob's your uncle.

Cold tires on cold roads tho must be factored in heh heh.

Hear ya Mark on the season's over - least you ended on a high note! Not here.

TR3's still in garage so awoke yest to 930 under 3" of heavy slush. Prob the first it's ever seen, I shoulda snapped a shot. Ah well. And in parking it there last I drove it, I popped a FP fuse out of ??? nowhere (WTF?). Time to evict TR3 to storage & hibernate the 930 8-(.

Can't complain, I did have a fantastic driving season w/ the pig. In all of my pigs, really.

j930... drive a 'regular' t/c'd car and develop boost knowledge / impressions so you'll have a baseline, as a 930 is really not a good baseline (well, for learning... it's the BEST baseline otherwise lol). Boost also depends on load, so it's build-characteristics differ per gear per throttle input per RPM per hill etc. I don't hit max (0.84) bar in 1st say until like near 4200, and it holds flat until 6k or so. 3rd gear I'll see max @ 3200 or so.

def read Corky Bell's book
