Imagine the best gains with the least downside, are exhaust mods, some o2 simulators, go free flowing as possible, will always be enough backpressure given the turbo, have it just dump from the downpipe

This a picture of my optima on a dyno at nameless performance. They want a base line before they start making parts for the car.

I figure about 17% in drivetrain loss, guessin ~225 to the wheels at 6K. The torque curve will be intesting . Can't wait for ya to post the numbers. Car is completely stock correct? How many miles on it? Minimal factors (but of consideration) would be if they dynoed it in 90+ degree weather, and if you had some suspect gas and it pulled timing. Hoping for a nice flat torque curve which ramps up quickly, that's kind of the goods they sold us on or at least was pleasing to read about before I bought my car.

Default update

Optima FMIC mocked up. Piping will be wrapped up tomorrow with a doubler panel closing out the factory side mount void (on the right) and including mounts for oil cooler, trans cooler or cold air box inlet.
