Meth is in, running it without water. Everything seems soo much smoother with the added octane.

No problems with the fog lights, just a bumper beam issue

It says to either remove it completely, or cut off some of the sides and add a spacer to distance it from the FMIC

I am using their BOV, its a hybrid so it can used to vent to atmosphere or recirculate, or a mix of both. I'm not releasing 30lbs of boost so I went total recirculation. It sounds good without being obnoxious.

I have a couple photos but they are in my phone and suck. My friend had a really good camera, ill have him shoot the engine bay.

lol no problem. thanks. i was just making sure because my guy wants the measurements of the intercooler so he can order it and start the build process.

for tuning you just did an ecu reflash or did u get a standalone ecu? i talked to a guy at Cobb and he said for me to get a standalone ecu

I know why Cobb said that, lol the pro tuner I used worked with Cobb to get my AccessPort to work, they tried for 4 days before they decided to go with just an ecu flash. I asked about a stand alone and the response I got was, "its always better to run a stand alone because more things can be modified during the tune versus a flash or APort. However, its not necessary to have one." And my car is proof of that statement.
