How do you like the GFB DV+? Is the difference noticeable? I'm thinking about getting one, most people are saying it's a worthwhile investment.

I had it on my Dart, and I had a boost gauge on my Dart, so I could see that it works as advertised, holding boost for those times the throttle plate closes briefly, like between shifts. With my 124 being 1000 pounds lighter, I can actually feel that it is holding boost between shifts. Well worth it for this car.

Wow - that's a clean car! I'm saving that to my pictures folder.
I did the DV+ too, but it was so soon after getting my car that I did not have much of a chance to detect any problems. FWIW, I am unimpressed with the flimsy construction of the stock part. That inner partition essentially fell apart as I very carefully removed it. It's easy to see why this part has issues on other cars.
best regards,
Pete

Front end Friday. After almost two weeks of rain I was finally able to get the top down. Beautiful afternoon.

Installed the CravenSpeed Stubby antenna, and the Eurocompulsion V4 intake today.

A big thanks to PureAdrenaline for helping me out with the evap hose connection.

Shark, your car looks very nice. I am sure you are finding that this engine in a car that weighs 800 pounds less than a Dart is pretty fun. I think the engine and this chassis are a good match.

Thanks Greg! It's a great little motor, I'm glad I was able to perform some serious weight reduction! I'll be getting your tune soon ;)

It looks like the GFB is much easier in the spider than the 500 , correct?. Thanks
The diverter valve may be easier to access under the hood, I'm not sure. Disassembly of the diverter is exactly the same.

Since the plug connectors on the NGEN coil packs are angled upwards, the engine cover no longer fits. Oh darn ;)
