You should probably tune soon, since you have an intake and 3" downpipe. Looks good so far!

I was getting ready to ship out my ECU to APR, but I scuffed up my rear bumper and cracked my tail light.

So I'm waiting on a group buy for a RevoZport rear bumper and inside tail light housings from ECS.

The tune will come soon enough though.

I'll give you a quick run-down. Although I've never had a Neuspeed, these are my opinions on the BSH.

Impressions--nice finish, snug pipe fit, noticeable low-range power increase, perfect diverter valve blow off sound, accurate positioning, apparently great positioning for MAF (which doesn't necessitate much modification BTW), and low price for a "race intake" (filter to turbo piping).

Disappointments--weird harmonic between 3K and 4K, and a weary tray fit/wobble.

This has all the good stuff. BSH intake??

Personally, I want to try out the VF Engineering intake soon!

You know your styles.






No, it is not an optical illusion--I have 18x8's with a 1.5" lip and 18x9's with a 3" lip
