John,

All great news. Here are a few more questions.

As an option, you can get our PiggyBack which will give you control over fuel and ignition.
Can your PiggyBack be added later for people who are't 100% happy with the basic chip tune?

For the 964, we can provide the MAF as a stealth kit where the MAF attaches (via an adapter) to the factory air box. However, the factory air box will need minor modifications, as it has a lip where the AFM attches.
Do you forsee any power difference between the two air filter options?

Did you ever do a "before" dyno on your 964 test car?

Please post some photos of the kit installed.

Yes the PiggyBack can be added at any time. I'm yet to see two cars that are 100% identical. The kit + software get you very close to target. To be 100% on target or if you have a unique setup, the PiggyBack gives you the added flexibility.

The issue with using the factory air box is the size of the opening to the MAF. The MAF is 3" in diameter, however the air box has a smaller opening, which "may" be restrictive. How much response or power will be left, I cannot tell!

We did not do a before and after test on the test car, the main goal of the dyno session was to get the car tuned properly and to to get the power out of it safely. There is a chance Derek will install the AFM back on the car and will dyno it at the same place when time permits.

I will upload a few pictures as soon as I get a minute.

Will the chip pass a CA smog emission test? If not do you see an easy solution, switch?

Our software runs clean, we maintain closed loop at idle and part throttle. However, we do not guarantee any smog status!

A few pictures while the kit was getting installed.

Not sure how this kit compares but I had a hotfilm conversion done in England by a company called AMD.
They no longer do this kit which is a real shame as the conversion was good good for about 50bhp with everything else stock!

Sounds like a homerun!

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
