Default Met 3BarBoost and UniqTwin at Block Party

I met the engineer and the Mopar marketing exec too. Great people. Also, I drove a Stage 1 on the drag strip, horrible start, but still a 15.34 1/4mile at 92mph. got videos and photos of it all. Stay tuned.

Yeah, I got a chance to meet them both breifly. I just wanted to reiterate our desire to see changes in the warranty and CARB aspects of the Staged upgrades. They said that they are working ont he issues. They pointed out the new warranty wording also. It was reassuring to hear 1st hand that they are working on the issues and are aware that there needs to be some "top down" education of dealership personel on this issue, though that is a long row to hoe. We just have to see how long we can hold our breath until this happens.

I spoke to 3Bar and TurboG (uniqtwin) from what I was able to get out of Gina she says Stg2 won't be out till around June, she's gonna push for an earlier release. Srt's Stg 2 w/toys, PT's Stg 2 w/o toys. May have toys available at a later date not definite. Those with Stg 1 will NOT get a rebate for Stg 2 purchase. That sucks, since I have Stg 1.

I too talked and had a blast I had a crappy take off ( asleep at the light) but ran a 15.03 at midday. Stage 1 2004 with back seat in. Faster than mine for sure! I was told the stage 1 had Borla cat back too! If it did it was pretty quiet! I really need stage 2 or a new computer cause I also test drove a 2004 Dream and it is faster than mine on the get go about same top end!! What a great day!

Don't know if any of you got there early (9am), but I was doing burnouts at the start lines for some pictures and then again a few on the return road for the fans.....

Burnouts are cool, but I *hate* trying to get the rubber off the fenderwells and the side of the car.
