We're back, and better than ever!

Hey everyone. Weíre back!

We spent the last few weeks getting our software upgraded from 2005-spec vBulletin to this shiny, new version. For the first time in half your CB7ís life, CB7tuner.com is running up to date forum software! 😃
We sought to keep the same general feel, along with our beloved black and orange color scheme. You may see some things changing here and there as we make some aesthetic tweaks, but all should be running smoothly now.

In addition to looking all fancy, this new version should be extremely mobile friendly. Hopefully that will make it more enjoyable for those of you that do most of their browsing on their phone!

Pandemic and cp[mike] literally busted their asses over the last couple of weeks to make this new software a reality. Without them, this never would have happened.


So, welcome back!
Feel free to ask any questions, give us your observations, and offer suggestions (no promises on implementing anything, but who knows!) There's a post for discussion in the Beginner OT section of the site.
Also, if you experience any weird errors, please let us know ASAP. We tested everything pretty thoroughly, but Iím certain we havenít squashed all the bugs just yet.

-Mike

Please DO NOT Post In The General Section

From this point on until otherwise briefed, posting in the general section of Performance Tech is prohibited. The only thing to remain here will be the stickies. We would just delete this section, but that would cause unintended results.


The majority of the threads created can appropriately be placed in one of the Performance Tech sub-forums or Technical; and the posting of them here is detrimental to the activity of said forums. If you have any questions about where you need to place your thread PM me or one of the other mods.


For the most part you all have caught on without this post, but there have been a few habitual offenders that forced me to say this.


Everyone will get a couple of warnings from here on out, after that I just start deleting threads.

Again if you have any questions, PM me or one of the other mods.

      I wouldn't even do that. Most quality wastegates start at $300. Hell, even OBX's wastegate weighs in at $200. If you can't afford that, I would suggest looking into a used one.

            Don't cheap out on turbo parts. You're asking for trouble.

              It depends ... Some things are hit or miss. I wont go cheap with injectors again .
              The emusa wastegate holds very consistent boost.
              I had my tuner add boost cut just to be safe.
              If buying cheap parts gets somone on the road boosted I say go for it as long as the parts work. I got a half way deacent turbo for my civic and the rest was cheap.
              I had issues with eBay injectors so I had to buy python 550s.i also has issues with the cheap $45 wastegate right off the bat but I get a $60 emusa and its been working fine.

                buy a Tial wastegate. Worth the money. No reason to cheap out and end up buying the same component twice just because your cheap.
