    The car stops very well for everyday and spirited driving. I have not gone to a race track yet but I plan to soon. The 312mm upgrade was well worth it compared to the stock setup.

    What's the digital gauge in the air vents?

    Car looks great, I think I may have to browse the build thread on audizine at lunch :)

    Thank you! It is a custom gauge I made when I worked with VEI Systems, it is a custom CNC'd b5 vent gauge with boost(psi) and AFR
