Car's off to TC in the morning for a laguna exhaust, fixing the seat mount so my head doesn't touch the ceiling, and hopefully (if they have time) an alignment and corner balancing. Might as well have them weld in the bung for my wideband O2 sensor while they're welding the SD exhaust pieces together, too.

I'm stoked for the race this weekend. Here's hoping tech doesn't take too long Friday morning so I can make the first session =) See you guys at the track and come say hi!

Looks good Austin! You should try and get a hold of Tom Turner ahead of time about getting your log book. He will travel I believe and is in Danville...worth a try(I will text you the number)! Make sure you bring a Laguna exhaust to the track just in case...we got popped last year for sound with ours when it was foggy(102db) though we never read higher than 97db at TH...go figure! I assume you've already taken the padding out of your seat and just need to lay it back a little...good luck!

Which AFR meter did you go with? I need to install the Innovate we just bought...figure I'll weld in the bung close to the factory bung in the downpipe somewhere...unless someone else has a suggestion??

Thanks! I'll give some of the scrutineers a call to see if perhaps I can squeeze in something before Friday morning. Maybe if anyone of them are coming to the race we could do it Thursday night when I arrive.

I went with the Innovate LC-1 as well. Looks like the install will be super easy. I'm having TC weld the bung into the downpipe (rather than the header, like the factory bung) so I don't have to reweld it if I need to swap headers. As long as it reaches your LC-1 I don't think it's super sensitive to placement. Just have to be careful not to put it on the bottom where it could collect condensation.

I run the Innovate LC-1 on my RX7. It has been there 2 years or so now. I mounted it in the approx location where the cat is. It installs pretty easily. I screwed something up on the wiring for the reset switch though which is annoying in a street car with the interior in the way...
