You are a respectable tuner. You probably subscribe to one or more tuner magazines and know, quite a bit about your car and/or racing in general. Either that or you play a shitload of GT3. At any rate, you recognize the difference between a wastegate and a blow-off valve. In time, and with practice, you may attain "Racer X" status since it is supposed that you are relatively new to tuning and still have much to learn. Keep, working, and thank the maker that you're not a ricer.
I got a -18%. The only the only question I didnt answer was which was Nissan'* version of variable valve timing. I wanted to say VVL but I really had no idea (and could care less).
Oh yeah, I dont subscribe to a single car magazine and don't play GT3.

-16% I own GT3 subscribe to 2 car magazines and read SOMETIMES some of the import magazines (I dont buy them, just read my friends).....but dangit that test was WAY skewed towards the import crowd! We need a Corner test...questions like how many neon lights do you have installed, and what type of wing did you buy for youre Grand Am?

I got -13... is that a good score? As long as I'm not a ricer. And yes, I've played quite a bit of GT3 in the past year... lol. I still don't know why GT4 has a '98 SHO but no GP or Bonnie.
