I've heard mixed reveiws about the VSSpro made by DCCDpro, but nothing but good things about the WSSP from MapDCCD so I went with the latter.

I don't think I will be running a DCCD controller anytime soon and just leave it open at 39:61 or whatever the split is. If, down the line, I get a proper locking rear diff, I may consider getting a controller.

And thanks. Car is a money pit, but fun. And good luck with the swap.
Thanks for the input/clarification. I want to track mine too eventually. I imagine a properly working DCCD controller would help fight understeer (maybe I'm wrong). If not, I'm kinda leaning towards a 5-speed straight cut 1-3. But I want 5x114.3 hubs too... ugh lol, anyway, keep up the money pit!

Just read through your entire thread and have to say what a great build! Hope to begin to meet more people around the Sacramento area. Hopefully I will be able to make it out to one of the meets soon just need to get some new rims and an alignment done.

Finally pulled the trigger on a big kid suspension:



Feal 441 kit with 7k/5k springs. Didn't go crazy lowering, but I set it just a bit lower than in the picture below. I'll get better pictures up later.

Also, switched over to a Greddy Evo catback. The piping hangs a bit low so I might go back.



Finally tracked down the boost leak to a worn/damaged seal from the throttle body butterfly rod to the TPS sensor. Pain in the ***. Picked up a new (different) throttle body and, hopefully, switching that will fix that issue. We shall see..

Just got back from FW where Travis was able to work his magic now that all leaks and hiccups were fixed.



Up from 300 whp/350 ft-lbs last 2/2014 and adding the 6MT, Perrin ELH, ID1000s and E85, car put down a solid 330 whp and 400 ft-lbs of torque. The torque peak shifted down and picked up a massive 50 ft-lbs with the newest additions. The poor little VF is choked out peaking at about 20 psi tapering to 16 psi. It is definitely the bottleneck now and, in fact, you can actually hear it chopping a bit under heavy load.

1.5 Dom or 3076R down the road perhaps?

Overall, extremely happy with the tune. New suspension, new tires, new tune.. autocross should be huge fun. GoPro vids to come after this weekend.

Traded the Evo 2 for a G200.



And if you're counting, this is the 7th turboback/catback exhaust setup, not counting stock. Don't judge me.
