Painted my brake calipers orange with WRB splatter. Sry for the crappy picture. I'll get better pictures when they are mounted.

Installed a new TMIC, ebay ftw. Thans to PIA for helping me out and lending me a y pipe, although I didnt end up needing it, so Im giving it back. Fitment is ****ty for some reason, probably because of the stock hard plastic y pipe, but its a hell of allot noticeable power wise. Spool is much faster and boost is at 16.5 now. Ice cold to the touch.

Also did my spark plugs, took like 30 minutes for the first one and 5 mins after that.

Total time spent. 3.5 hours.

A couple weeks ago for my birthday, I treated myself to a full stereo upgrade. I'm loving it so far, being a musician its great to really hear everything in the mix in such great detail, especially my own music

Yesterday- I went to the Auburn Subaru, and picked up New drive belts and parts to rebuild the AC tensioner assembly... really exciting stuff

Today- Detailed in and out and will be heading out shortly wherever the road takes me to enjoy the awesome weather

I bought the Pioneer AppRadio 2 because it has direct connection to your phone and control of your music. Also a bunch of apps to control on screen, like free traffic and gps apps. A heads up, it has no CD player but that's what I wanted. They're only like 500-600 installed, depending on where you go. And you get hella skips on Pandora and no ads.

Awesome thanks for the detail. I got a hundred bucks or so at Best Buy that I'll likely use on a new headunit!

I went with the AppRadio (SPH-DA100), I'm quite happy with it, I don't use cd's really so this made the most sense for me. Since I mainly use my iPod, iPhone & Pandora for music, movies and Podcast’s, and has great options for navigation so it was a win-win situation.

Then added some other goodies to round out the system, I'm quite happy with the results!

I have an AppRadio in my car right now... That iPod connection cord is crap and has broken on me twice. Luckily the first time was right before the warranty was up, but it's starting to go again and at this point I'm about to just dump it and get a real head unit. Should have done that from the start.

The touchscreen is crap, and navigation sounds really good but it's ok. You have to leave your phone's screen on the whole time. You can't turn it off, because the head unit stops showing it too.

It's a good idea but it's a horrible implementation. At least they have 2 preamp outs on the second generation though.

I messed with the first gen model at Cartoys, I didn't like it at all. Blaupunkt actually made it for Pioneer and its quite obvious.

The Second gen SPH-D100 is made by Pioneer, and there are alot of changes made to this one. Worst case, if I get tired of this one I will take the AVIC-930BT out of the ladies Xterra and put the AppRadio in her ride

Re wrapped my elh. The guy that wrapped it the first time for me did it dry with 2". So it was loose. I did it wet with 1". It took 3 50' rolls. I also plasti dipped my wheels black. Looks good for 10 bucks.

Found a slight exhaust leak at where dp and mid pipe meet. Way to start off Labor day. Oh well going to try and double up gaskets or just order a Grimmspeed adapter.
