How do the HPS 5.0 compare to HPS Plus? Those are the only Hawk pads I tried before.

Glad that the car seems to be driving well now. How is low end torque under 3,000 RPM compared to a K04?

Will you go with wider tires?

It's one thing to chase small issues here and there, but with multiple problems (and who knows how many more there are?), this is not acceptable.

If the shop is honest and take pride...

I wish -2.1 is enough but it's not giving me a balanced setup since I have to reduce rear camber accordingly too.

Basically, my camber plates allow -2.5 max per side, which I had set to before. ...

Some new thoughts:

The CFs are relatively low.

But so far we know that boost is good and fueling is good. So this leads me to think something is wrong with ignition (or some sensors are telling the ECU to adjust...

Logically, I know you are right. I'm just not sure if it's leaking some boost when the engine torques under high acceleration.

Well, I think it's best for me to get those boost curves to see.
