Thanks - I think 3.5 is a good goal and once it is all settled in I'll get more aggressive in the Launch.
I've attached a pic of the install and it is superb. Even the installers were very impressed by the layout being mm perfect (it looks factory to me). They are making a couple of notes on the install instructions but they to were first rate.
I also just did 400KM of mixed driving down the coast and the Jeep was great. My wife did a short drive an commented that it now feels much more "settled" post the install. She always thought the stock vehicle felt a bit "unpredictable" and was more comfortable driving it now! How good is that.
One thing I did notice having the Jeep on ACC was down a steep hill it would drop gears / increase revs to hold to the speed limit but of course as the revs build up so does the SC. No hard driving but overtaking and merging is very easy
. These means the BOV opens and makes it's distinctive noise (the kids think it sounds like a bunch of babies screaming)... so the nick name of "Baby Eater" as been cemented. I'm kinda getting used to the noise it makes and if the VTA BOV was not illegal here in NSW then I'd probably keep it.
I also kept an eye on the Temp Gauges, and:
- Engine was 90 degrees Centigrade
- Trans was 90 degrees Centigrade (but I don't know what is "normal" for this one)
- Input Air Temp was 5 degrees Centigrade above ambient when on the free way and 10 degrees above in slower trafic which I think is much improved on my stock Air Box.
Good fun weekend.
