I’ve managed A whopping 1500kms so far... plenty of time 8000rpms+. Hasn’t missed a beat, tuned to 789 at the tires on ultra 94. Absolute blast to drive and a still user friendly and drivable if you keep it under 5k rpms. The biggest dilemma is the traction control; leave it on and it’s constantly stealing power, turn it off and It will break traction at 120kms if you stand on it in third. awesome and terrifying (When you’re not expecting it) at the same time.
Its worth mentioning that I haven’t seen the oil level move on the dipstick yet.
Another point to consider is that for street use it’s pretty hard to use the available power or abuse this car... once you start standing on it you’re doubling the speed limit in a couple of seconds.

So silly question here for the for all you running Whipples. Do you get that sexy supercharger whine still on these cars? Most videos I have seen it seems it cant be heard.

The only time I can hear some outside whine is when exhaust is closed and I’m doing 30 through a quiet neighborhood.

Definitely not like my old Gen 2 Lightning whine

The whine is almost non existent. definitely can't hear it over the exhaust.
That sound tube kit looks interesting but $120 is hard to swallow for a piece of hose.....

and YOU only hear it in the cabin. Nobody else outside the vehicle gets to hear it which is what I would think one would want.
