Thanks! It is the Canon 5DII and the Canon 70-200 f/2.8 IS. I did about a dozen different polarizations and layered them to reduce reflections. I only ended up using 4 of the shots for the final image. Then I cleaned up tons of crap in the road. The car is really filthy but the polarization really seems to hide it. I was presently surprised in how it turned out!

That's funny, I thought you washed the car with the tree on top. In the picture on FB that your wife posted the car was all dirty, lol

The black powder coated TMIC from the earlier stages of your build, is that Perrin? And how did you like it?

It was the IPR TMIC which is a Perrin knock off. The fitment is mediocre. It has the same issues as the actual Perrin one. It really is just a little too large. It makes it hard to get one, and when you do it can rub on the clutch cylinder. Overall it's decent for the price, but not great.

Yeah, that time has come! I'm glad we got ours now, so we can have it up for more than a couple weeks.

There are a couple other things to mention. You should remove the rubber end caps from the OEM throttle body to TMIC hose. You should do this no matter what intercooler you choose (stock and FMIC included). The other issue with the IPR TMIC (and the FMS TMIC) is that they are made of soft aluminum with threads cut directly into the metal. They strip out instantly. Plan on drilling out the holes, tapping them, and putting in threaded inserts. If you don't then you BPV will never seal. Minimal time and effort if you have the tools, but something to keep in mind.

Thanks for the detailed info! Would have never known this otherwise and have very few tools and little experience in installation. I will most likely be going with the process west TMIC for a worry free installation. Everyone with the process west seems to be pretty satisfied.

Did you try any aftermarket UEL headers on your car? or at least a PnP OEM exhaust manifold. It would be very interesting to see how UEL stack up to EL.

I gotta say, your ride is probably one of the sickest sleepers I have seen. Eliminating the hood scoop really gives the car a great "unknown" factor.

I think this is a good choice. The cheaper options are decent if you know what you're getting into, but the PW seems like the best option for a quality product and straight forward install.

I had the GrimmSpeed crosspipe, but the collectors were unmodified. I did not try any aftermarket UEL headers. I don't see the point in spending all that money and leaving power on the table.

Thanks! It doesn't seem to garner much interest on the streets. I guess that's a good thing.

It's worth it if you want a physically shorter lever. It doesn't change the spacing on the bottom section (linkage vs. pivot point).
