    During the week I can now be found down in Connecticut at Speed Technik, a Porsche/BMW/Audi/Viper/Corvette tuner and professional car audio installing. I have known these guys for years and the owner finally made me an offer that I would have been foolish to refuse. While it sucks being about 220 miles away from my place in Massachusetts, it is really only a commute that happens on Sunday night and Friday afternoon. :sad2:

    Here are the pics from the first week of "work."

    Almost got the Tein coilovers and EDFC for my ride but ended up opting for Groudn Control since the only thing I liked about Tein was the EDFC.

    Man, I wish I could afford a GT3. :drool:

    Do you think you could put some bigger exhaust tips on that RS6?? :ugh:

    Right now I am acclimating to the shop, but my ultimate role will be to spearhead BMW-specific revenue, general sales and public relations, and the creation of the below linked content after various events:

    http://www.ziplink.net/~ctroiane/viper/v1.html

    As a precursor to the job, the big boss flew me out for the 8th annual Viper Owner's Invitational in Texas. It was a stupid fun time. :big grin:


    Probably not. The OC.T chip and other goodies has that thing at 460 whp on a Dynapack, so it needs to be able to breathe as well as possible. :dunno:

    Clearly. I wasn't. That car is blow your ass out fast and it needs every bit of free breathing available to it - especially given the upcoming modifications.

    Very cool :bigthumb:

    Is this the industry you trained in? Or is this a step to throw away your education and follow your passion? :big grin:

    How old are you btw? I always assumed you were a little older (late 20s - early 30s) than I was, going by the way you carried yourself on here...
