    Stiffer rear is for oversteer

    However i dont think any manufacturer of sway bar has any real data either harder or softer but you need to have it balanced to your car

    Im running soft on front and rear superpro and it seems the best

    i just made small changes to the front or rear at a time to see how it changed the handling either spring pressure or shocks swaybars i also set it up so i get the same feeling over a bump front to rear and that helped alot the rear spring pressure was much softer then front now it's more balanced so feels way better

    Had a leak from the power steering cooler the other day
    Not sure why it leaked. Its part of ac condensor so had to get a regas when it was replaced

    Just changed the oil and filter and cleaned the otr filter

    Pretty happy with the car and how it drives now

    The bilstein shocks seemed to have settled and handling is pretty fantastic now

    So your tuner has to have 2 goes at tuning your car which only has basic mods. Interesting!!!!

    Got a new toy

    Yep
    Its stupid because hpf tuned it first and had hot start issues
    And i told them this when they retuned and it still has the issue

    Quick google search reveals its common issue on cam cars and theres a table for when hot it just needs more air
    Should be easy fix

    Just got back from motorex today at flemington

    Thing is if it's a common issue, any half decent tuner should know about it and sort it before the car leaves the shop. No excuse for a hot start issue, they can start and stop it as many times as necessary to sort it out.

    I agree but what can i do other than take it back?

    The less you stuff around with cars the less issues you have
    Dont get me started lol

    i made some TB adjustments the other week and developed a slightly harder hot start due to different airflow calculations, needed some throttle to help out out i just made one change to startup airflow and boom back to normal starting should be simple as that for a tuner
