Talked with PSI yesterday. They are done with everything on the car minus the EMS. They will get back to it tomorrow afternoon, and should have it wrapped up next Monday-Tuesday!

List of stuff completed by PSI:

- Drained/re-filled a couple fluids including oil, coolant, PS fluid, and brake fluid including ABS system
- Installed new oil filter w/Mishimoto 10 row cooler
- Aerocatch hood pins
- 2005 washer nozzles
- Battery re-location with mounting bracket in the trunk, and jumper terminals in the OE battery spot
- Dual catch can with SS lines
- ABS re-location with custom bracket
- Titan 6-bolt exhaust cam gear
- Centered the exhaust in the bumper opening
-Went over every nut and bolt to check for tightness/OE torque specs

Once the EMS is done, they'll get her tuned and put her on the dyno! Can't wait...

Just got off the phone with PSI. They are currently buttoning up the EMS install, and should have the car ready on Thursday!

Everything else has been completed, so once the EMS is finished up, it's tuning and a dyno session! I'm going to call them back on Thursday to verify completion, hopefully I'll be picking her up this weekend!!! :D

Just talked to PSI again today.. They finished the EMS late last night, took 3 days to do all the wiring.. lol. They were putting the finishing touches on this morning, double checking all the sensors and everything.. The plan for today is to get her tuned, then started up for the first time in over two years..!!! :D Then tomorrow, she goes on the dyno! We're aiming for 300rwhp!

We're still on schedule for this weekend!!! Going to verify AGAIN in the morning, to make sure today goes smoothly. As long as there are no major hiccups, I'll have her back in 48 hours!!!!

so you're going for 300whp on stock GE? Or did you put in a thicker head gasket?

Of course! The SRT kit comes with a Cometic MLS head gasket. Looks like some of my pics got deleted/moved for some reason..

that's a 2.5mm HG right? So you're compression should be down to about 8.5:1 which should be pretty reliable on the GE. lot of people boost stock GE's at 300whp for a while.
