    Nice work. Will the grill fit back on? Are you going to get a dyno test to see if theres any difference?

    Grill will go back on without mod, might cut out some blanking sections around center badge. Pushing a/c condenser back and keeping FM cooler close to radiator spt panel, recon might even have room for spal fan(will see).

    Tune likely near future, want to get a handle on where it is at for a while.

    Drove twice, first 10kms(local rural) yesterday (2am) and then 8hrs later about 100ks hwy and in traffic. Initial run experience shows run improvement, spools up in a very linear controlled manner and is responsive in a sold way (engine sounds good). Noticed improvement in low down performance and like the drive (good first impressions/early days).
    Does drive differently, less turbulence noise than experienced thru previous tube & fin TMIC(this cooler was a very good performer must say).
    Different boost behaviour low down may do some adjustment to actuator rod length keep vanes @ closed limit a little longer (induction changes) but it is very driveable with no complaints. EGTs may be a little higher eg: test hill 4th gear 70% eng load stock 575, with 600x300x76mm t&f TM 380, now 600x300x76mm FM 400 but early days. Maybe better having slightly higher EGTs for low down torque performance. Cruising @ nom 300C up from 280(so close the same).
    Have not changed Tillix boost set (max spool/no needle used). Previous TM running max B 27psi now at first run with FM went max boost to 30 psi (bounce) and ran at 28psi, but now settling down running 26 psi max B will watch.

    Pleased with result but have sore hands, will fit grill and spotties this evening.
