Are you using a short, medium or long header with this pipe?

IDM offers one size manifold at this time. We are working on some options but nothing yet in production. I would assume that we could shorten the header a bit with cut and weld. Maybe a few mm. Give you a big difference in engine power curve. More top little softer bottom.

The track was just recently sealed though and is extremely abrasive with only moderate traction. It's been raining a lot lately so there hasn't really been anybody running on it much. In comparison, the last race before it was sealed I was turning mid 16 second lap times, this time my absolute fastest lap was only 17.5. It should be a lot better for nationals this November though.

Finally had a chance to run my IDM Evo 3 this past week-end in a 2hr enduro race - it was freaking AWESOME!

My car had to be the fastest on the track -my team dominated the race for the first hour until we ran into other issues with the gas tank.

Even my team mates were impressed! I can't wait to begin the Florida State series with my IDM Evo 3
