They were installed along with the process west top mount as a safely measure when I wanted to MAX out the VF52 without running out of fuel and worrying about the end tanks blowing off the stock intercooler. I'm 99% sure that the stock pump and injectors can keep up with the VF52 at 20 PSI on 91 and 93. The intercooler is another story, multiple failures at 18-19 psi. Bottom line for my situation is that I don't need the extra fuel, but I'm glad that I did them and that I did the write-up for them. The pump and injectors would be close to maxed out but not totally maxed. As I did, I would consult with your tuner before hand to see if it's even necessary. Lastly, after ready through your thread and seeing that you be on ACN 91 all I can say is ouch...

I'm in the position where I'm going stage 2 but don't know how far to take it considering it's my daily driver. I thought about doing a equal length header, process west tmic, fuel pump, injectors and pro tune but I realized at the end of the day that mite be unnecessary for the 15 miles I drive my car daily haha . At least 93 is available everywhere .

Haha, my commute is now less than a mile. If it isn't snowing or raining, I'm taking my bicycle, lol

I still question why I have any engine modifications at all. The exhaust tone is nice to hear but besides that, It's incredibly rare that my car sees excessive speeds or hard take-offs. The installs and write-ups were always the best part for me and though I want to have a lot more power, it's unrealistic and a waste for my particular situation and driving style.

I think if I had a way to use the power (legally) close by, I would be spending all my money on power and handling

It has it's benefits being so remote but having 91oct and no highways isn't one of them.

I adore downeast (i have spent a lot of time in camden/bar harbor/harrington) but 56 miles to a highway is tough. Anything 2 lane close at least?

This is gonna sound really random. But I just so happened to come by the Danbury Mall in CT, to grab some Red Robin and do a little shopping. To my surprise I saw your car parked in the lot, so if you see another white hatch parked one spot over, that's me. Not to be creepy but figured I'd take the chance to check out the car while the opportunity exists, I'll try to snap a pic if you're still there when I leave lol

Ah just got back now, sweet pic though. As far as the ass cheeks go though, that would be a negative to the twerk-age LOL

Oh, yeah thats the exact size for the head unit. Also, you can't view an image bigger than 800px on here anyway.

If you guys want high-res versions of anything PM me. I'm not a fan of posting unnecessary, oversized images on here.

Over the holiday break I was able to get out of Maine and travel down towards the NY/NJ area for 10 days. Taking advantage of being so close to great shops, I called up Euro Tire to get an alignment. Their reputation for excellent work, attention to detail, and great care for your car is what brought me there (also highly recommended by Jive Turkey).
My experience was exactly all the above and more. I was very pleased how the car was handled, driven, and worked on. Plus the waiting room overlooks the entire shop so you can watch as the work is being done. They are more on the pricier side but well worth the extra $$ for the peace of mind that your car is in good hands.

Since I have no camber adjustments besides the lower front strut mount, they were only able to adjust a small amount. The rear is what it is, no adjustments are available.

Here are the final numbers and some other images.
