Hi Lucas and crew,

Drove about 500 km round trip; drivability and throttle response of the GW-EFI system are very good! This even at ambient conditions 18-28 degrees C, and high humidity.

The stability on the road with the new GoWesty custom Bilstein shocks is very good—better as compared to the regular Bilstein shocks I had on there.

Replaced one of the hook-up boxes with a new GoWesty design box—works well!

Thank you,
