    58th Micra/March in our garage - congrats.

    Any plans to personalize/modify it?

    You betcha! I've already got a "CHOPPED" decal on it. I've been good friends with Moog for years and years. Met him through music of all things. He's quite the punk/metalhead deep down. Lots of plans to modify it, First things first though, let the tuning companies make some damn parts for it. The second gen K13 doesn't have much available at the moment.

    HA!! I just got the Blue Turd reference. (I may not be the sharpest hammer in the drawer.)

    Yes, those guys have shown some real Micra love.

    I think some of their earliest videos were of mods to Marty's red K11. And then there was the profile of the March Super Turbo. Fun, fun.

    Here's the "Before" Picture of the Blue Turd. It will be a little monster when I'm finished with it.

    Heymike! How do you like your tune?
    With the cat delete hows the back pressure ? Enough to keep it happy?
    I guess you dont have emission testing out there eh? What about the warranty? Is that now gone or you just swap in the cat?

    The tune is running great now. Was a little rich for the first run, so changed the AF map and corrected it. Warranty is likely gone, but I still have the OEM exhaust and a flash copy of the factory tune, so in theory, I could reinstall it. Back pressure isn't a problem at all. Unless you're running an open header, it won't be damn near no matter what exhaust you're running. It's really hard to produce little enough back pressure on a 1.6 to cause valve problems.
