Just got back from dyno and the numbers are 189.96 H/P and 177.76 tq at 76.8 mph and my air fuel ratio was 13.38 which the guy said was too lean. So Hopefully I can get a good tune for the s/c. I e-mailed rogue, so we'll see if he has one for me.

install will be complete tomorrow. I will do a write up this weekend on install and pics, things are going very well and the kit is fairly easy to install. I was also wondering if anyone would want to have a liitle meet in the portland area before summer ends? I am really curious to see what other northwesterners have done with their rangers.

FINALY INSTALLED!!!! Had a few problems with fuel leakage and CAI modification but its on and running. It's still a bit lean, so hopefully i'll get my s/c tune from rogue this weekend and take care of the problem.
