My mpg readout is always 1 higher than actual. It reads 26.3 so far on this tank. I average 23-25mpg depending on how I drive.

Overland, did you gap the spark plugs? I see some talk about different gap specs but I always thought you should never attempt to gap an iridium plug.

Nope, never changed the gap, just through them in out of the box! I've heard the same about not changing it and then I looked at them and realized why I shouldn't touch them, lol

I had a chance to speak with the tuner (Hill at Agile) today and he said the stock plugs are fine for a daily driven car at this level. He said the 1 step colder would be needed if I planned to track the car or if the car was run hard often.

Another interesting thing was he suggested to stay with the stock air box. I'm not doubting him in any way but you generally see many people getting protuned with the AEM or Cobb on the 08+ cars.

I think the next thing on my list now that I'm almost satisfied with my engine is going to be the interior. I think I'll be doing the JPM alcantara like you. I still haven't decided if I want to do it myself or not. I have installed all parts on all my cars but feel like I should leave interior stuff to professionals because I am extremely OCD

Haha, me too!! That's actually why I wanted to learn to do it myself. The cutting, stitching and glueing were things I've done in the past and I wanted to at least try. Once I got familiar with the Alcantara and it's stretching limits I felt I could just keep going. I'm going for the dash soon but I need to get settled into my new house before I go further.

Don't remind me, lol...
I skipped on e86 because I was fooled to think that the local stations around me were actually going to carry it. Right before I left for EFI, I got the official news that there will absolutely be no e85 in Maine. Especially within the next 5 yrs.
Also I made an offer on a house so I'm trying to slow the spending on the car to buy some tools for the new house. I'm in process of moving now so i've neglected my car for the past couple days and might continue for another week or so.

I'm still super pumped to get the new Brembo setup on!!

I'm going on vacation in June for two weeks. I was thinking about sending them all the stuff I need wrapped that way it can be done while I'm gone. Not sure what I want to do yet though.

So they changed it to the passenger side airbag instead of the clock? I would not be interested in that at all.
