Installed IXIZ hood dampers, removed a bunch of stuff that's going to get powder coated, mocked up my FMIC to make sure it'll work, and cleaned up the nasty FMIC piping that's been sitting in my garage for months.

Quality Powder Coating in Carrollton. I've used Specialized Performance Coatings in Arlington for some work in the past, and they're awesome, but I hate driving out there from McKinney so I went with someone a little closer.

Not sure. I just emailed the address listed on qualitypowdercoating.com, and they replied the same day.

Guess what im going to do!










Decided to go with the mini H1's because of the ease of installation and i wanted to try something different than my usual FX-R. Im using the ocular shrouds instead of the usual e55-r as well.

Made sure the Cobb AP stg 1+SF map wasn't going to destroy my car since I have the K&N typhoon. All the logs were a success and the step up is more noticeable than I first expected. Now Ima go FAST!
