...I wonder if ditching the AFM would be legal? It helps the car SO MUCH, especially with autpcross torque.

I noticed that you can change the intake "ahead of the throttle". Cool, perhaps you can ditch the 8-10 pound plenum and go composite given our unusual throttle position. On most cars with a single TB, you can't make as many changes. Maybe smog legaility would be an issue.

I'd almost want to see a tire runoff. The 215 might do okay, especially given that some 225s prefer wider than 7.5 inch wheels for max results. So you're saying that for a 225 you can use the 17 inch Azenis or the 15 inch BFG KD? When I autocross with my 225/45 hoosiers, the gearing change is slightly beneficial. The car also loves light wheels and tires.
