I dig the low. I plan on dropping mine to be flush with the top of the tire up front and maybe a 1 finger gap in the rear. Rakin' it all day lol
You should definitely shorten the intake! Doesn't your car run super lean or throw a cel with the cone filter?

Still not as bad as Halos, STI spoiler and blue highbeam LEDs that can be seen a few posts above.

thanks for the feedback. But i hate to disappoint the pessimists because the cai isnt going anywhere. hydroshield is purchased now and will suffice. also, i think i gotta see more of you guys's cars before i litsen to so much negativity lol.

You have stated on numerous occasions that you do not like my car or that you consider it to be "rice." Again, that is your opinion and there are plenty of people in general and in this thread that would disagree.

But having the need to constantly bring down the "view" of my car is completely unnecessary and immature if you ask me. If you stated an argument about the functionality of certain mods then I would be more accepting of your constructive criticism (like others have done in the past).

+1 to this. I actually like the setup you have a lot. Personally for me, it would be too low for daily driving but everyone has their own preferences.

Feedback: your car is soooo baller. Infact my favorite 2.5i right next to Daigle's. But, I think your ride would benefit more from a new set of wheels!

Edit: when your that low how do you lift it up to work on?

i gave you solid feedback, but you still continue on ignoring it. that's fine. if you are okay with your hacked together fender mods that's fine by me, too.

also, that intake placement is blah to begin with. with that much piping and bends it completely negates the fact that you're pulling in cooler air. shorten it up, put it in the engine bay, and stop worrying about hydrolocking (which you'd seriously have to run your car into a lake to do, but anyway...).
this WAS great advice. actually, im gonna try to rig up something tonight..

Oh and the only thing id change with that great looking DGM is getting that liner back in there for protection. I love what you've done and still want to know how you're not throwing any CELs with that CAI!!

No you don't. Get your head out of your ass. It doesn't look bad, but it doesn't look THE BEST ON THE FORUM!

I am going to disagree with this because TECHNICALLY, out of all the 2008 2.5i's on nasioc, (including mine) his is one of the nicest.

I know he hasen't posted in here in a little while, but I def think that himynameisgreg should be placed in the same category.

Thanks for the kind words. Currently saving for spacers from the reaction that the fender mod caused, i can only imagine what i'd hear about spacers lol. also, the cai has NEVER given me issues. installed from the box and never had problems.
