Went for a long drive this morning all around cambridge/Arlington/Watertown area.

I feel no loss of torque at the low end. In fact I find myself not needing to down shift nearly as much as I used to out of 3rd and 4th when cruzing around due to low rpms.

Had some guy in a black maxima try and race me on the greenbough blvd. He tried to step on the gas to pass me. At around 45-50. I floored it in 4th and pulled away from him like he was standing still.

The supercharge whine is a little more noticable today, perhaps cause the car was so cold when I started it up this morning. My mpg has however gone right down the tubes:).

I filled it up yesterday and am already at 1/2 tank after about 75 miles of driving.
