It's all preference. They both seemed to work fine. The TurboXS is much quieter. I think I like it better for daily driving. The GFB is easier to adjust tension (screw instead of washers) and it can be converted between 50/50 and fully recirculating. The "trumpet" makes it a lot louder. I just need to start selling stuff...

No, the Forge is the one I Plasti Dipped. That one is already sold. The GFB is black from the factory.

For you? Sure! It's pretty small, so it shouldn't cost much. I'd be fine shipping for those prices.

Hey xluben how low is the car compared to stock now on the RCE Blacks? It still looks pretty low and I thought they adversize only a .75 inch drop.

I'm not positive how it compares to stock but it was about a 2 finger gap in the front and 1.5 finger in the rear. I can measure fender to hub sometime. Maybe after the springs settle.

With the help of ofspunk7, happyfeet, and my brother, we installed StopTech SS lines, StopTech pads and ATE SuperBlue fluid. I was worried about the brake line fitting stripping out, but I purchased some 5 sided flare wrenches and didn't have any problems. It was bit nerve wracking but it went pretty smoothly. Pads were simple and bleeding the fluid went well with four people

Compared to what I had before it is quite a change. I still had stock pads and fluid and they were pretty roasted after going to the track. Pretty mushy feel overall. The new setup feels a lot firmer and bites much earlier. I haven't done any hard driving though. Just bedded them in and then drove around a bit after letting them cool down.

See above. Unless I got to bigger brakes like Brembo's or at least LGT brakes, then I don't see any need for different rotors.

I still have the Turbo XS 50/50 Hybrid if anyone is interested

Yesterday I also installed the TurboSmart Kompact BPV. It looks very nice. It is really quiet.
